Involuntary pun section:
The Russians have really deserved...high..."Marx"..? They likely got it done so fast because they were always "Russian" around so much. So in honor of these brave contractors, "Ural" invited to come play a massive game of Sharks and Minnows.Ok, I'm done with the puns. Sorry about that.
Why Sharks and Minnows, you ask? Because it's the best game ever invented. Marco Polo is stupid, and not historically accurate what-so-ever. Water Polo doesn't even allow the use of horses or mallets. And yes, while silly races where you swim across the pool in all your clothes are fun, there's very little risk of people getting injured, which is lame.
Yes, Sharks and Minnows, people - it's the balls-to-the wall game where you'd better get your balls from the wall they're on to the other wall as fast as possible, because goddamn it, there are SHARKS in these waters. Haven't you ever seen shark week?
|"Sharks and Minnows: 1, 2, 3!!"|
I used to play it back when I was a competitive swimmer in high school, and the entire team would use it as lung building exercise that was also super fun. We'd all battle, and grapple, and beat each other silly underneath the water until people would almost pass out and drown.
Side note: I also tried to devise a re-breathing apparatus out of a series of tubes and Styrofoam cups from the concession stand. It didn't work, and I nearly passed out and drowned a bunch of times. Come to think of it, the more times I almost passed out and drowned, the more fun I remember having. Probably due to memory loss/hallucination due to oxygen deprivation.
However, while I'm entirely obsessed with sharks and minnows, I AM open to suggestions about what awesome pool games you all have been enjoying this summer already.
