Well, it seems were going to see some weather today. Sounds like a great day to stay inside and practice writing kanji. Now it could also be a good day for discussing sports. No, not baseball, football or auto racing. We're talking about the plain strange here. Let's go past competitive eating. Past bear wrestling. We need something so out there, so simply different that we are left guessing how the idea of it came up (which, coincidentally, came up for me by typing in "weird Japanese sports" in Google). I'm talking about Extreme Ironing! Yeah, extreme ironing. This is an actual sport! Well, I guess if you have a warped definition of sport. This is just so different I'm half tempted try this. Not sure if they would accept bouncing on a bed that is on the roof while playing the fiddle and ironing with my feet as extreme enough. Maybe if I was in a speedo in the middle of winter, the house I was more than 50 stories tall and my hair was on fire.

You can check out some info for extreme ironing here. The official definition is the best.
