The latest sport craze? Competitive Endurance Tickling

New sports come and go.

Remember that Trampoline-Basketball hybrid that was filmed at Universal Studios a while back? It never really caught on.

The most popular sports, you see, are ones that people can watch the pros play on TV (golf, tennis, baseball, basketball, football) and then later get together with their friends and play themselves.

Lacrosse hasn’t really caught on with the mainstream, but its getting there.

For some, it’s a required part of the curriculum, intended to encourage healthy living and the strong development of young bodies still growing.

For others, it’s a way out of a podunk town and into a major university or professional career.

But if you participate in a solid high school sports program, there’s a good chance that you’ll end up hurt…. or even dead.
