The Agony of Victory: A Welsh rugby fan cut off his testicles to celebrate Wales beating England at rugby.

I guess I am just not a true fan. I'd be willing to maybe get a kick in the corleones if it actually helped the Leafs to win a Stanley Cup (I'd need proof of the correlation beforehand, but -- maybe), but damn. That's hardcore. I vote that he's no less nuts now than before.

At least they didn't refer to him as "a Welsh rugby nut". Oh, my, I'm really not funny at all...

chico: if the Leaves win the Cup, can I be the one to kick you in the nards? I may or may not wear the ol' steel toe boots. Man, what an awesome way to vent if they ever win the Cup again.

Wow. Just wow. Police told the paper he had a history of mental problems. You don't say.

NoMich - it's Leafs. Not Leaves. Can I kick you in the crotch, now? No harm in asking. Plus I think we're all safe from that happening with the geriatrics they have resting in the home until the season starts.

Oh, I'm quite aware that it's the Leaves. HA! Sorry, just a Leaf hater and I know what you guys hate. Mind you, nothing personal.

Leaf hater, huh? Well, you are leigon. Still in NC? So you're the hockey fan.

You know, I was going to post this story, but I thought it was too tacky. Gotta admit the guys got some balls. In a pint glass.

It just goes to show there's a vas deferens between fandom and fanaticism. I guess one could say that's a celebration that went balls up.

I did mention the need for proof of a correlation between a nut-kick and a Leaf Cup win, right? And wc2k2, that pun is exscrotiating.

I'm willing to bet that if you kicked NoMich in the nuts that the Leafs wouldn't win the Cup and we could show a correlation between annual NoMich nut kickings and Leaf playoff flameouts for the next few years.

I must admit that when the puns starting flying I always feel like David Brent: "Trifling… I'm just trying to think of other deserts to do."

posted by gspm at 11:29 AM on February 08

I really wanted to come up with a good pun but I just have no talent for that.

Well played, wc2002.

I understand how he feels. When my team loses, I feel pretty testes, too. Puns aside, I welcome at least two FPPs about testicles a month.

I vote that he's no less nuts now than before. Ha! Meanwhile, this just in, Welsh people are certifiable.

I guess you could say the count is 2-1. Two balls with one strike.

More proof that English sprots fans are insane. That said, that was a weird bet to make that I would expect an England fan to make. It doesn't make sense to bet against your team like that (not that it makes sense to actually slice off your balls, either). It's not like any dude would actually hold you to it if they did.

sports, not sprots, by the way

It doesn't make sense to bet against your team like that see, i read it as one of those "i'd give my left nut to see them win" kind of thing.

I just want to say, "Go, nads!"

More proof that English sprots fans are insane. You mean Welsh, right?

posted by Mr Bismarck at 01:25 AM on February 09

Dude, I feel your pain. Or at least about half of it.

posted by wfrazerjr at 07:50 AM on February 09

see, i read it as one of those "i'd give my left nut to see them win" kind of thing. Easy for you to say!

More proof that English sprots fans are insane. You mean Welsh, right? I see him as a subject of the crown, so for sports purposes, I label him as English. If something important like nationality was at issue, I might be inclined to differentiate

It's confusing for Americans, but a Welshman would be pretty upset to be lumped with the English, as would the Irish and Scottish. Maybe even upset enough to cut your his balls off.

posted by dusted at 08:41 PM on February 09

You might get away with saying British, but calling a Welshman an Englishman is not a mistake you want to be making in the wrong place.

posted by gspm at 06:50 AM on February 10

I fail to see what's confusing about it. Surely if the Welsh can grasp it then anyone can.

posted by squealy at 10:02 AM on February 10

I realise this is difficult for some of you colonials, but the United Kingdom contains at least two countries where you'll end up with, at best, a mouthful of abuse for calling the locals "English." You might get away with it in Ulster, by try it in Harlech or Glasgow and I suggest you call in the ambulance in advance. Just saying.
