Nordic Ski racers are the toughest SOB’s around, everyone knows that. I mean what other athletes voluntarily dress up in skin-tight lycra to punish themselves in the most aerobically demanding sport in inhumane arctic conditions… and love every second of it?
Inspired by this awesome blogpost about a giant Presidential knife fight (totally worth reading…. spoiler alert: Don’t mess with Teddy!), the editors of Windbriefs have decided to propose their own “what if” piece where the Peru Nordiques face off against each other in a no-holds barred brawl to the death in a Mad-Max-Thunderdome-style cage match! Then you get to vote to determine who survives!
The Nordiques are each given their own personal combat weapon, and are grouped into The BIG-FOUR of Battle Cages…. and the rules are simple: Fight to the Death! The winners of each Cage will advance to the ultimate showdown!… Be sure to make your picks below..
