This Sunday at youth group was our 3rd annual Man-Lympics; a competition of rugged masculinity. Because of Title 9 we allowed females to participate as well, and also enjoyed shaming all the boys that they beat.
Here's how it worked:

-Dr. Pepper chugging
-Sawing (like, an actual board)
-Washer Tossing
-Football catching
-Sunflower seed spitting
-Written portion

Here's the written portion: How much man are you?
