Epic Carnival | Where Sports and Pop Culture Collide: New Age Iron Men

New Age Iron Men

by Don, With Malice...

This is part of a paired article - it's partner is over at With Malice...

So... the term 'Iron Man' either brings to mind a superhero clad in a suit of armor, or sun-tanned athletes in a grueling surf event.

But now, not so.

Extreme Ironing is a growing 'sport' (term used oh-so-loosely) where you get your butt out to a place that makes it damn near impossible to iron, and then press a few items of clothing...

Yuh-huh... well, if you're not grabbed so far, have a look at this clip - I can just about guarantee that you will be motivated to grab a board, an iron, get yourself a cool nickname like 'Ace Phincter', 'Fab Breeze', 'Sassy McGee' or 'De-Pressed' (all members of ExtremeIroning.com), and gogogo...
Maybe...


So, I'm grabbin' the nickname 'Buzzy McPants', my board & trusty ol' iron - meetcha on the top of Fuji.+

Stumble It!
