... to describe a goddam computer game. It's derisory. It's JUVENILE. THIS is hardcore:-
"Covered in mud, five hours after starting, triple amputee Corporal Todd Love charges to the finish line after competing over ten miles of rugged terrain across 75 obstacles in an event called The Beast.
Having lost both his legs and an arm in Afghanistan in 2010, this weekend Love took to Leesburg, Virginia, in an extreme endurance test called The Spartan Race with his eight-man other comrades of Team X.T.R.E.M.E.
Made up of wounded servicemen and women, the team helped Love scale eight-foot high walls, speed along high-wires, crawl through mud and bound across the ground as they honoured their ongoing mission to raise awareness of the nation's wounded heroes.
Purposefully wearing a gasmask and visor to restrict his breathing by up to 30-percent - thereby making it more difficult to complete the event - Love who now weighs only 100-pounds after stepping on a landmine - struggled against huge odds to compete the event."
The article I read also mentioned that Cpl. Love has participated in skydiving and surfing in Hawaii and even wrestled a 400-pound alligator in Florida. Goddam!! An alligator! With three limbs missing, this guy wears a mask to restrict his breathing to make the event more difficult. THAT my friends, is an example of actual hardcore, not someone slumped at a keyboard playing a computer game.
I know this post will get deleted, since it's not really game-related, but although I'm an Englishman my admiration for this American man knows no bounds.
