I remember seeing this show one day after school as a child! I never knew of it's name until now. It is one of the most bizarre shows I've ever seen. I could never figure out whether it was meant as a comedy, documentary, or a drama. It's basically about the world distance spitting champion and his protégé who both fall for this girl. Of course the champ gets the girl until tragedy strikes and the tides turn. But that's where it gets kinda funny. The whole subject is weird. The plot takes a turn for the worst, and the champ takes a remarkable hilarious down ward spiral, climaxing in one the weirdest things I've ever seen on television. But you'll have to see for yourself to truly appreciate the event. I mean seriously, the world-spitting champion? Just absolutely bizarre! I've been looking for a copy of this for years, so if anyone knows how I can find it, I'd be forever in debt-ed! This definitely is a must see for any one who finds humor in sad tragic events! -Jay
