OK, so it's not exactly a vacation, but the "Man Games" is something that any athlete would consider a relaxing day. Did I say relaxing? Sorry, I meant absolutely brutal and awesome. This isn't something that you'd see featured on a TV show like The Getaway, but that doesn't mean it won't help relieve some of that work-day stress. "The Man Games" is a national competition series composed of 12 challenges that will challenge those who call themselves "hardcore." What kind of challenges? Well, how about a 200 yard sprint through an obstacle course compsoed of ice & fire?
Oh, and that's just the warmup. Other challenges include an all-out paintball war, chasing a pig through a knee-deep mud pool, and being launched through the air via a human slingshot. Yes, I said slingshot. The pricing is relativley cheap and you're guarnteed to at least do something that you've only dreamt of while watching a Die Hard marathon. So return those plane tickets to Paris, sweetheart. It's time to get out there and take a real vacation.
