Things I’d Buy If I Had Unlimited Amounts Money: 12 Segways
Segways are one of those things that are kind of cool in concept, but when forced between choosing to spend a few thousand dollars on a scooter that rolls at 8mph or, well, anything else that costs a few thousand dollars, the choice is pretty easy.
Practicality put aside by the magical mystical “unlimited money” clause, I’d buy a fleet of 12 of those suckers, and create some sort of sport based on them.
I haven’t worked out the details yet, but it would definitely be hockey-style, with rough play encouraged. A few key points:
- 5 on 5 play, with 1 spare Segway per team in case of a disabled vehicle.
- Only stock Segways used; no performing-enhancing modifications.
- Players must stay on their Segway; if they get knocked off, they remain out of the play for a set period of time. Stepping off intentionally is strictly not allowed.
- There will probably be a ball or puck of some sort, with sticks and a goal. Maybe lacrosse baskets.
I see it like Whirlyball for the 2010 decade. Someone needs to make it happen.
