The Most Dangerous YouTube 'Sports'

"But is it sports?" 

We face this question every day here in the Swagger division, and many times it comes down to a theoretical debate. Is a dog scoring a goal in pickup soccer be considered "sports"? A ball and a goal are involved, but did the animal make an "athletic play" on the ball? Did it celebrate properly? Was Ray Hudson on the call?

These are deep, divisive questions among sports writers, but at the end of the day, what is and isn't "sports" is a subjective discussion.

What I do know is that there are certain athletic, one-off activities out there that flirt with the realm of sports but are too dangerous and/or painful to ever be considered for mainstream consumption. Thus they seek refuge on the Interwebs.

The following are videos of some of the most dangerous YouTube "sports" out there. Some are (much) more athletic than others, and please, DO NOT TRY THESE AT HOME.
