Whatever happened to good old trust falls?
Sports teams, at both the college and professional ranks, have been getting very creative about their team-building exercises in recent years. Perhaps a little bit too creative.
Every team needs some bonding time to get to know one another a little bit better off the ice/court/field/diamond. But when that bonding involves the likes of dangerous live animals, playing ball on ice skates and dodging mousetraps in your own locker room, you have to wonder—how important is team building, really?
Granted, trust falls can go wrong, too, but generally, they're a better bet than anything that involves guns/knives/mousetraps.
