As part of our Dadchelor Weekend, we are participating in a Manathlon in order to judge ourselves against each other as men and prospective fathers. In a wider sense, I guess this is the point of sports. But I digress. Anyway, the next event up is something I call 'Dadchelor Challenge'.
The basic premise in creating this event was to incorporate something that seemed almost legitimate like some lame baby shower game, but also involved drinking beer, hilarity, and the potential for injury. Here is what I came up with:
This event is a race, in time trial fashion. This is because it would be expensive to get 8 different racers (or even more than one or two) running at a time. As it is a race, the object is to complete the challenge in the shortest possible time. Order of contestants is determined randomly, so if any advantage is to be gained in going near the end (and watching everyone else fail), that advantage is given randomly to the people near the end.
Each contestant starts at the starting line with a baby carrier (Baby Bjorn is a popular brand, but there are a lot of them) lying on the ground, and a watermelon, also on the ground. Nearby is a broom, bat, mop, or some other similar object. When the timer says 'Ready, Set, GO', the contestant puts on the baby carrier and secures the watermelon in the carrier. Then, the contestant spins around the broom (dizzy bat style) a set number of times (say, three). The contestant then runs to the other end of the course, and must drink all of the beer from inside a baby bottle (through the nipple, without damaging/biting a larger hole in it) and then run back to the starting point. Breaking the watermelon during the course of this event results in disqualification.
Basically, I am not sure what winning this event means, but I am reasonably certain it doesn't have any bearing on your readiness to be a father. However, it does sort of involve a few baby-related items, so your wives/baby mamas may like the fact that you've included it.
