My first introduction to the sport in 2003 was a friend telling me about the exciting way she broke her wrist. Good times.

I find the whole situation between the recent ice hockey injuries and this human ice demolition derby very odd. One minute we are talking about "new rules" on the ice and the next, we are celebrating this crazy Red Bull ice thing. Pick a side...any side.

Let's not hear any stories about how they didn't see this coming. It looks like sheer madness to me. I'm surprised anyone walks away afterward.

Nope!!! Couldn't see this one coming. Wait for one to get paralysed and that will be on the news for the next 3 weeks.

This Crashed Ice stuff appears to be another contrived junk sport designed to get this particular corporation free publicity from a complicit gaggle of media dupes. I could be wrong, but I doubt it.

Participants in this race should be required to purchase extra health insurance to cover any injuries they incur during the event.

If someone gets hurt, there is in NO WAY that any person has anyone to blame. And crap, if it's going to happen, at least you have one helluva story!!! I'd much rather go out and break bones and have plenty to tell my kids than to say that I never broke a bone, and never left the house. Go and experience something.

Is Red Bull going to pay the medical bills when it is discovered that half these kids have no health insurance. Or is all this fun going to be at public expense.

This is why I thought it was CRAZY for Chris Coleman to even set foot on that track. Surely, St. Paul would have had to pick up the tab had he broken a bone in his role as mayor.
