Icebergs, Whales and a Football Pitch

reddit1 greenland

Disko Island is just off the west coast of Greenland. It has a population of approximately 1,200. It has an area of 8,578 km2 (3,312.0 sq mi), making it the second largest island of Greenland (after the main island of Greenland) and one of the 100 largest islands in the world. The vast majority of the landmass is rock. But the soccer hungry people of the island built a top quality football pitch on a beach.

While the soccer game is on spectators can enjoy the beautiful scenery, especially the icebergs just offshore. And every so often whales can be seen breaching the surface and blowing water out of their blowholes.

“Time To Go”
[Chorus:]
Go! Go! Black and gold!
Old-time hockey, bar the door
Clear the track it’s all-out war
Light the lamp, throw a hit
Black and gold never quit
The barn is full, our team’s in town
So put ’em up boys, knock ’em out (knock ’em down)
Drop the puck, it’s time to go (time to go)

Bust outta work, it’s quarter-past five
Time to round up the gang
and take the Red to the Orange line
Head for the street and the Causeway crowd
You can feel it in the air, when the team’s in town

[Chorus]

Rancourt’s ready, it’s time to take to the ice
So tie down the jersey ’cause it could get ugly tonight
Top corner, five hole, off the post and in
On a quest for the cup, and we’re ready to win

[Chorus]

Go! Go! Black and gold!

Drop the puck, it’s time to go

 

Tis the Season for Hockey

The hardcore fan has to express his devotion to his team somehow. A man cave is one way of going about that in the extreme. But lord, these guys must hurt bad when their team loses. And hysterically rejoice when they win!

This one almost looks like a bar.

Bull Riding

Bull riding is a rodeo sport that involves a rider getting on a bucking bull and attempting to stay mounted while the animal tries to buck off the rider.

In the American tradition, the rider must stay on top of the bucking bull while holding onto the bull rope with one hand for eight seconds and not touching the bull or them self with their free hand. A bull rope is a fiber rope wrapped around the chest of the bull directly behind the bull’s front legs, which the rider grips while riding. If the rider does this, it is a qualified ride. If the rider is bucked off before eight seconds, it is a no score. In most bull riding circuits, four judges mark scores for the rider and the bull. Two judges score the rider based on their ability up to 25 points each for up to a total of 50 points. The other two judges score the bull on his bucking performance for up to 25 points each for a total of up to 50 points. Thus, the ride is scored up to 100 points. Most professional riders score between the mid-70s and high 80s. American bull riding has been called “the most dangerous eight seconds in sports.”
