Ghetto Sports: Introducing Extreme Ironing

Hi there! Are your clothes extremely ironed? LOL.

Let me tell you about a new sport that i have discovered--its Extreme Ironing!

Extreme Ironing (or EI) is an extreme sport and a performance art in which people take anironing board to a remote location and iron items of clothing. According to the official website, extreme ironing is "the latest danger sport that combines the thrills of an extreme outdoor activity with the satisfaction of a well-pressed shirt."

But part of the attraction and interest the media has towards extreme ironing seems to center on the issue of whether it is really a sport or not.

Below are some interesting photos of EI. W

hat amazes me most is the efforts of these people to really take ironing to the next level. My golly the things that they did for EI is no joke! I am actually very impressed and it looks so ghetto fun too!!!



This man took ironing above sea level!



Cliff Diving while ironing...hmm...


Underwater ironing...


Brrrrrrr....


Brilliant! Saves time! You can iron your clothes on the way to office!



Fast Iron...



Even guys at war would love to wear well pressed clothes. So iron away, Lt!



These girls has a date after white water rafting so might as well iron their clothes already...


Poor man! Is he seriously ironing the tops of these 20 plus boatmen???


Ironing on the go...


What do you think about this extreme and interesting new sport? Crazy or insane? I think its FAB for 3 reasons:

1. Seems like sports that uses boards are pretty cool nowadays(surf board, wake board, sand board, etc) EI requires a board too--an IRONING Board!!! You can have it decorated cute prints! So there EI is cool.

2. Fashionable. You can use a fashionable outfit to iron or to wear while ironing the clothes! ( check the man who ironed from north pole)

3. You can go to places. It can't be EI if you cant take the outfit and the iron board anywhere extreme. like underwater or on top of the mountain. Be creative!

Maybe its time for me and Bea to do some extreme sports and EI might be just a good choice. How about you? Are you up for it? If this interests you, click here to check their website.

Have an extremely awesome day!!!

Xoxo,
