Following the success of ‘throwing a stick’, the crazy Germans have come up with a new sport that they are imaginatively calling ‘Sporthocker’. For the uninitiated Sporthocker can only be described as extreme sitting with a few fancy flips thrown in for good measure.
Sporthocker newbies will find that the rules are quite simple. Players, arm themselves with a hock –something that looks like a giant cotton reel crossed with a dodgy cheap plastic stool. And the idea is to play with your cheap plastic stool… er… hock in a bad-ass and rad way (pretending it is a skateboard is just one example of the many ways you could play) and once your flashy manouver is complete, you must sit on your stool. Easy!
The sport is proving very popular amongst German teens, who think they look ‘street’ juggling with plastic furniture. And the inventors are sure that Sporthocker will soon take off all over the world.
Take up Sporthocker and you are guaranteed to draw a crowd of curious onlookers. Who wouldn’t be blown away by the sight of someone completing a 360 degree ass-plant?
