…or was I hallucinating?
I was but a wee tyke back in the mid-1970s, but I have a clear recollection of this strange comptetion on Saturday afternoon sports. It was along the lines of the early “World’s Strongest Man” competition, in the Bill Kasmier, dead-lifting boxes of gold coins days. The competition I’m remembering involved the participants running an obstacle course through a bar or tavern - jumping tables and so on - until finally smashing through a closed door and ringing a bell to stop the time.
I know - even at five years old I was wondering what that was all about. Anyway, The memory of this popped into my head over the weekend and now I’m curious: Does anyone else have any recollection of this, and what it was called? And even more importantly, what was the point? Or did this never happen at all, and I should ask my parents about what sort of sedatives they were putting in my strained peas?
