    As best I can tell, the object is to sit in a sauna until you can't take it anymore. Stupidest competition in the world as far as I'm concerned.

    I think this made Rick Reilly's latest one-liner-fest book on stupid sports competitions. All fun and games 'til someone dies.

    ESPN The Mag ran a story on these recently. Nobody died, but a couple guys did themselves significant cosmetic damage.

    Damn, beat me to it.

    WWE is not an actual competition. Now, if you want to talk about Vince McMahon's World Bodybuilding Federation ...
