SportsFilter: The Wednesday Huddle:

A place to discuss the sports stories that aren't making news, share links that aren't quite front-page material, and diagram plays on your hand. Remember to count to five Mississippi before commenting in anger.

That was fun to watch, but I see it as being pretty heavily orchestrated by the Red Bull promotions department. A few of those guys--while they might have been "hockey guys"--didn't appear to be better skaters than your average beer leaguer (#88 in particular). I'd like to see the bona fides of the hockey players taking a crack at the course; they don't necessarily need to be NHL players, but maybe AHL/KHL or some other top-tier league. I'd also like to see how a professional figure skater, someone who is used to being airborne, would handle the course.
