Today, the Times tells us about an obscure Punjabi sport that, the paper claims, is growing in popularity here in the city. This is how they describe "Kabbadi," which is like a cross between wrestling and rugby, being played on Sunday afternoon in Cunningham Park in Queens:
"The shirtless men circled and lunged at each other ... One combatant chose an opponent to tag, only to suddenly find himself trapped in an upside-down bear hug and being shaken like a stubborn ketchup bottle ... The men were barefoot and in shorts, their well-muscled torsos shaved and glistening with oil that flashed brute power."
And you thought the two dudes who broke the Guinness Book of World Records title for longest-lasting kiss was the gayest competition you were going to read about today. Where is Cunningham Park, again?
