A Ballsy Move for Your Team

Now here's a story about true dedication to your team and owning up to a ballsy claim (we couldn't resist).

A Welsh rugby fan promised his friends: "If Wales win I'll cut my own balls off." Well, sadly for him (although he seemed more than willing to comply) his team did win, and so....off with his nuts!

ThisisLondon reports that after the win, "the man is reported to have gone outside and severed his testicles before bringing them back into the club to show fellow drinkers."

Well at least his balls will no longer be subject to much harrassment and grabbing when he is on the rugby pitch. For those of you who haven't experienced the joy of rugby firsthand, it's quite common to have fingers jammed in your ass (a la "the shocker") and your nuts grabbed in the scrum. (A quick peek at Google's results will give you a taste).

One observer notes, "But I guess in seriously competitive rugby, not only is the wedgie acceptible, but it seems to be fairly common practice in regular play. Who knew? Further, this bit with the finger in the pooper is a dramatic escalation of sports related warfare on the battlefield of the crotch. And this bit with the testicle grabbing?!?! That's Ok?!?!?! What up with that?"

"This sort of thing is why American's don't understand rugby. 'So let me get this straight... it's kinda like football, kinda like soccer, a little bit like a streetfight, and what's all this about putting fingers in each other's asses?!?!'"
