The good thing is, if you get injured, or knocked out, they can cart you off in the wheelbarrow.

'No word yet on whether this counts as a valid toss, or if it will have to be done over'

Ah, yes - the classic videography method of getting a fantastic shot of shoes and pavement when the action is still happening.

If you can dodge a wheelbarrow, you can dodge a ball.

He says that, but the people with the measuring string are clearly walking out onto the competition area. I'm going to guess that yes it's a valid throw.

Hey, there's no "out of bounds" in EXTREME wheelbarrow toss!

So you're saying it's interference then?

Several things: That speaker took 95% of the dome splitting force: the measurement guy heading over....: Spanish people be crazy. There used to be theme type red sauce joints where you throw your shelled peanuts on the floor while waiting for your food. In Spain it's like that but with chicken bones.

Not many competitors knew about the secret bonus points for taking out a speaker and some spectators

They were bringing the chains out to measure so I think it was a good throw.

I'm thinking maybe he was supposed to throw it where more people weren't

Mas lanzamientos of wheelbarrows here (local news from a previous year):

Lanzamiento de carretillos

Looks like they've been doing it since 2009 when it started one night during their festival.  As a bonus, at the end, the anchor asks the woman who's part of the group running the contest: "why doesn't it have a wheel?"  Her answer: "I imagine so it doesn't bounce and get anyone."  Ha.

That was a serious impact. At least one person went down.

Makes me wonder about all those people on the outside of turns at rally races. What were they thinking?

Rough translation from my 7th grade spanish class education.

"If you have a group of world drunks surrounding you, use a wheelbarrow as a weapon.  Lancets of carts in the river.  I don't know if lancets get what reptiles."

Do they measure to where it hit the person or where it bounced back?

I prefer the traditional sport of throwing wheelbarrows at bulls.

He got extra points for throwing an Eephus while still causing death.

Nah, 'barrow into the crowd is a ground rules double.

It's only fair the distance should count.  It would have gone farther had it not struct the people.

Honestly, I just think it's nice of all these other countries to host these types of events out of the generosity of their hearts so that those of us in the US don't feel so stupid by the people who get the most attention in this country.

Why throw a wheelbarrow? What prompted this "sport"? Did construction workers who got tired of their jobs decide that it's better to turn it into a sport than actual work?

Still safer than Lawn Darts. If they were hard-core they'd be throwing lawnmowers.

Technically, that is just a barrow toss.
Not a wheel to be found on the one he threw.

They're thinking it's fun because it seems dangerous, like going to a street takeover with Chargers and Mustangs drifting around...5000 lbs of metal flinging around in a circle on bald tires being pushed by 800 hp in a huge cloud of rubber and smoke...well, until a crowd of people get hit. Then it's hilarious!

Then the family and friends get together in the gazebo at their apartment complex, light a bunch of candles, the news comes out and they talk about how they're "seeking justice for our beloved Caitlynn, who always lit up every room, and was the most extraordinary person you'll ever meet, and never did anything bad" except that doesn't represent Caitlynn's lifestyle at all, and she would vomit into the wind if she heard it in person.

At least that's what happened when Bibby died. Just Google "Bibby Jacksonville" for more information. It's a fascinating story involving a series of viral rap videos in the midst of a regional gang war and the next hearing is on August 31. It's like some kind of bizarre version of The Wire where half the episode happens on TikTok.

Anyway...this guy makes some good points...

Anyways, back outside to do work.

I'll try not to throw the wheelbarrow though.

Hey Spanish speakers: what's the expression for "heads up!" or "look out!" or whatever you'd yell?? Would you yell "cabeza!!!!" ???
