A few weeks ago they had a dock diving competition in Vail. Tuesday night they had one on the Late Show With David Letterman. In the case of the latter, they had a portable pool set up for it.
For those who don't know what this is, dogs jump off a dock to retrieve a plastic training stick. They're judged on how far they go. Some of these dogs really seem to fly. It's so awesome. I'm amazed it's not bigger than the Superbowl. Maybe it will be someday.
From my observations, the dogs seem to really like doing this. But make no mistake, if you watch the dogs who are waiting to jump, they are all locked on to the dog that's jumping. This is highly competitive. I think it's the coolest sport on Earth.
