UK Students Get Their Water Balloon On

Friday night a number of UK students, including shirtless members of the basketball team Michael Gilchrist, Marquis Teague, Doron Lamb, Stacey Poole and Kyle Wiltjer, set the world record for most participants ever in a water balloon fight. I believe the previous record was also held by UK students and it does seem to be one of those “well lets create something and then set a world record in it” type things, similar to how Bryan the Intern recently beat out Jerry Tipton for the world record for “Most Words read by a fanbase that hates the writer.” But it is still a quite cool event and one that seems to be becoming a tradition on the campus. Below is a video of the actual fight, set to music and slow motion rendering of those that took the heat of the enemy fire:

    That’s cool and all, but what happens if one of or more than one of these players slips on the wet grass & blows out a knee or gets hit in the face & scratches a cornea trying to have fun?

    17) Yea, and what if one of them puts an eye out while biting off their toenails? Or, what if they bite their tongue and it causes an infection while eating Cheerios and watching iCarly? Even worse, maybe they strain their eyes while watching iCarly? They might not be able to shoot!! Oh Geez, maybe we should keep all girls away from them too because they could throw their back out while giving them the business!! AND what about when the world ends in 2012? Maybe we should have them all go to the West Virginia bunker that the president uses in case of nuclear war. Now that would make me sleep better at night!!

    HEHE, just yanking your chain dude (well not literally). Kids gotta live and have fun. It was a risk, but as I so eliquently described above, life is a risk every day of our lives. Don’t sweat it.

    Kidd-Gilchrist has a face/body that is ready-made for marketing purposes. He’s a good looking dude. No homo.

    Dude in the yellow actually took some time off from saving whales from the Japanese whaling fleet in the Southern Ocean to attend the event.

    His day job is First Mate on the Bob Barker. His name is Peter Hammerstedt.

    I think it is awesome that those guys are taking advantage of the opportunity to be college students. Wall, Bledsoe, and Cousins were famous for being on campus, making friends, and enjoying the college experience. Glad these guys are, too. I know my daughter is a member of CSF and they have been working for months getting ready for this event so it’s good that so many have taken the time to get involved in a fun activity that, I think, shows the special side of being a college student.

    Hey Matt Jones, check out this photo. I guess since you think Lamb is 6’1″ Teague must be at least 5’7″
