00:15:25Viewer discretion is advised.
00:15:30We're back on "whacked out sports," we're in italy where weeks of unseasonably heavy rainfall is turned the soccer pit into a muddy ditch.
00:15:39Rather than cancel the game and make pizza or stomp grapes, they're going to play on.
00:15:45I really don't know what it would take to stop a soccer game.
00:15:50Not something silly like a riot or earthquake.
00:15:55There's a vacant lot full of broken bottles and rusty nails and it's a tetanus shot waiting to happen.
00:16:03Every day around lunchtime, some shirtless dude grabs garbage cans for a quick match.
00:16:15They're your lone goal.
00:16:23The crowd was psyched and the players were soaked.
00:16:26Let's grab the extreme express back to the states for an all girl parking lot punch fest.
00:16:33Wow, most of my waking hours are devoted to hoping to see chicks get into a fight.
00:16:39But then when it actually happens, wow.
00:16:44We're in a church parking lot in the suburbs of cleveland and these two kitty cats do not know how to play nice.
00:16:52I guess it's kind of jarring.
00:16:55Where is the mud?
00:16:57Where is the oil.
00:16:59Pillows would be nice.
00:17:00I wonder what they're fighting about.
00:17:02Probably not a parking space.
00:17:06Maybe one borrowed the slacks without asking.
00:17:08If you crazy kids want to kiss and make up we have plenty of videotape.
00:17:15That's cool.
00:17:18The first thing we do each day here at "whacked out sports," besides giving mom her sponge bath, is span the globe from backyards to the backwoods to find slips for the little segment we call homegrown videos.
00:17:36Ever wonder who stayed if your hotel room before you?
00:17:39On the offchance it was these knuckleheads you might want to wipe down every square inch of the place with sanitizer to be on the safe side.
00:17:51This isn't a gaggle of federlines, these guys have a plan.
00:17:58Bush is going to ride the fuzzy scooter through the always of this this fancy hotel and jimbo's going to film it.
00:18:08Just to make it interesting, butch will be wearing the thong.
00:18:13Why are they doing this?
00:18:15I guess it's like jazz, you have to ask, you'll never know.
00:18:23That is truly disgusting.
00:18:27It reminds me, I have to pick up tea bags on the way home.
00:18:33The funny thing is there's a convention of fish tank gravel salesmen here last week and some did the same thing.
00:18:45Most major hotels, plate to know the thongry drives a wedge between you and security.
00:18:54They're not likely to turn the other cheek.
00:18:59Looks like the fun's over but they'll always have their memories.
00:19:05If they can even remember what city they're in when they wake up tomorrow.
00:19:10Let's grab our fuzzy scooters and head to the beach for a wet and wild whack tak hur.
00:19:22Linday and misty fly around the world doing fun stuff.
00:19:27It's their job.
00:19:28Think about that the next time you're cleaning the corn dog friar.
00:19:34The girls are in maui, taking a break from getting massages in their five diamond hotel to try out a little wind suffering.
00:19:43These structure dudes probably have the second best job in the world.
00:19:48After lindsey and misty.
00:19:51What do you know, they're not all that great at it.
00:19:57But who cares, they're hot.
00:20:02They'll never have to pay for a single drink as long as they live, or at least until age 40.
