This video is incredibly chaotic, and I absolutely love every single second of it.
Now, I don’t want to brag, but I’m quickly becoming an expert on this “topic.” Before this, I covered a story where a bear took a shot to the nuts while it was messing with an outdoor water tank.
I also touched on a very important story out of Wisconsin where a college football sideline photographer took an errant football to the family jewels. It was as journalistic as it gets, and I truly feel like I’m producing some of my best work.
I’m guessing that my algorithm is now realizing that these types of videos catch my eye, which is why I imagine the clip attached below came across my timeline. So let’s get into it, shall we?
I’m not sure what these men were doing in this garage/workshop, but to the best of my knowledge, it looks like a strange hockey-baseball crossover that is inclusive to the animal kingdom.
To set the scene, we’ve got one man with a hockey stick and a bouncy-type ball (maybe a racquetball? or lacrosse ball?), a dog wielding a plastic baseball bat, and a man standing behind the dog that appears to be fulfilling the role of “catcher” in the made up garage sport.
Just reading the scene described, it does already seem like an accident waiting to happen, does it not? And that’s exactly how it played out, though some might argue that the way the dog utilized the red baseball bat was no accident…
The man with the hockey stick pitches the ball towards the dog with the bat in its mouth, and chaos ensues. Somehow the dog understands that it’s supposed to swing the red bat, and in doing so, it blocks the ball initially and stops it right in its tracks.
However, when it stopped it, the ball bounces straight down and then straight back up into the air, and as it fell back to the concrete floor, the dog took another swing at it with the bat, and propelled it 30 miles per hour (rough guess) into the private parts of the man standing behind it.
The guy who was possibly the “catcher” does not catch the ball, and instead takes a direct hit to the gonads, causing him to keel over in a painful laughter.
Even the people that get hit in the family jewels can’t help but laugh, and especially so when it happens by the hands (or paws) of a dog with a plastic baseball bat.
