Ninja Warrior

~~~~~X {shuriken!}

I just saw this show the other day for the first time on G4. I like it. MXC is hilarious but this is cool, it's so physical, at least the 3rd and last stage. It's interesting to watch how much upper body stamina (pretty gay at this point) endurance people have.

They seem to let anyone compete as long as they are in good physical shape. From policeman to fishermen who train 300 days out of the year on their boat.

[WIKI]Currently, the program can be seen in the United States as Ninja Warrior on the G4 channel, Tuesday nights at midnight EST. The play-by-play commentary and interviews with participants are subtitled in English while the introduction and player profiles have been dubbed by voice actor Dave Wittenberg. Each episode is a 30-minute portion of the Japanese broadcast.[WIKI]

I like it, I just like seeing people do physical competition from the days of American Gladiators. I like fear factor, but the people on there are egotistical tools or psycho and I don't really like the gross food challenges. I can't even watch a lot of them because they leave me with a feeling of nausea.

Anyway all for BODY PROPU and CURTAIN CLINGU

    You ever get hungry at like 3am when you have to decide whether to eat something even though you shouldn't or just go to sleep hungry?

    I have Ninja Warriors for the SNES, it's a neat game. Sidescrolling beat 'em up, but there's no 2 player mode!

    I personally like it more than the Viking Challenge because it doesn't have those stupid "balance a pole on your hand" kind of events in it

    The first challenge seems like stuff I could do, up to that part near the end where he practically jumps over that big half-pipe thing. White men can't jump.

    I could do that part just because I'm 6'6" its the bear hugging of the spinning cylinder thing that would get me, I think.

    I watch this show when I'm either buzzed or blazed with friend.

    Last week we then built a frame in my backyard in which we tried the "cliffhanger" obstacle on.

    Man I bet after a few weeks of watching this show I'll have my own little ninja warrior course.

    There's one episode where he apparently just keeps screaming that some dude has 3% body fat.
