Some records, like Cal Ripkens’ consecutive games streak, or DiMaggio’s 56-game hit streak, will never be broken; some records no one should ever want to break. Kirby Roy set one of the latter recently when he took a record-setting 22 mph kick with 1,100 pounds of force from MMA fighter, and American Gladiator, Justice Smith, directly into the nuts.
After being kicked repeatedly in the junk for 5(!!!!) years, Roy’s little fellas only register about 10% of the pain such a blow should cause, enabling him to set this record. For me, the only time I want the word “blow” to be associated with my special-purpose, there had better be a job attached.
