Strange Sport of the Week: Toe Wrestling
Have you ever felt like arm wresting was just too easy, and maybe a little too boring? Well then, have we got a sport for you.
next time you’re hankering for some appendage-filled feats of strength (no pun intended), try our newest strange sport of the week: toe wrestling.
It’s a lot like arm wrestling, only, of course, the players use their feet instead of their arms. It took us a while to understand the dynamics of this sport, but they go a little something like this: Players must link toes and each players feet must touch flat on the other’s. Typically, after a short starting chant which varies by region (for example, “one, two, three, four, I declare a toe war.”), the opponents proceed to attempt to pin their opponent’s feet for three seconds, while avoiding the same. Pinning is accomplished by placing one foot on the same foot of the opponent.
And that’s about all there is too it. But of course, our favorite rule of toe wrestling here at KB, is that is is customary for each player to remove their opponents shoes and socks before a match.
So before you try any toe wrestling, make sure you stock up on that Gold Bond powder!
