I Guess It's Better Than a Riot

Sports fans celebrate victory in different ways. In some major cities, a big win is cause for a riot of some scale. In my college town of Morgantown, big victories (or defeats - it really didn't matter) are an excuse for students to take furniture from their homes and set it ablaze. And for one Welsh rugby fan, it was cutting off his balls.

Yes, you read that right. The (probably - hopefully - drunken) Welshman told mates in a bar that he was so sure world champions England would beat Wales in the Six Nations match last week that, "[i]f Wales win I'll cut my balls off." True to his word, after the 11-9 Wales win:

Huish went home, severed his testicles with a knife, and walked 200 yards back to the bar with the testicles to show the shocked drinkers what he had done.
Damn, that's dedication.
