A Darwin Award Candidate

Those who know me also know how much I enjoy reading the Darwin Awards. Well here is a candidate that has eliminated a lot of possibilities from the gene pool.

From Reuters:

Well, at Least He Won't Be Fathering More Fans...

LONDON (Reuters) - A Welsh rugby fan cut off his own testicles to celebrate Wales beating England at rugby, the Daily Mirror reported Tuesday.

Geoff Huish, 26, was so convinced England would win Saturday's match he told fellow drinkers at a social club, "If Wales win I'll cut my balls off," the paper said.

Friends at the club in Caerphilly, south Wales, thought he was joking.

But after the game Huish went home, severed his testicles with a knife, and walked 200 yards back to the bar with the testicles to show the shocked drinkers what he had done.

Huish was taken to hospital where he remained in serious condition, the paper said.

Wales's 11-9 victory over England at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff was their first home win over England in 12 years.

Add this to the growing list of fanatic fans of various sports (Soccer, Hockey, now Rugby. . .).

Signing Off. Until next time, I'll see ya on the Blog! drh.
