Before the advent of the Internet, the general populous had no idea what passed for entertainment in the city of Bowling Green, Kentucky. Once a year, the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers would win an automatic birth to the NCAA basketball tournament by capturing the title of the terrible Sun Belt conference, but, outside of that, nothing!
Now, thanks to the "world" wide web — and yes, despite protests from the European Union, Kentucky is still considered part of the "world" — we can learn all sorts of things!
First, with some extensive Wikipedia research, I've been informed that since 2006, Bowling Green has been home to a single A minor league baseball team affiliated with the Tampa Bay Rays, the Bowling Green Hot Rods.
Then, through the magic of YouTube, I was able to watch the above video showing some Kentuckians in action!
Yes, you're seeing it correctly: This video shows fans of the Hot Rods attempting to break the world record for "human mattress dominos." The record seemed like a perfect fit since most of these people don't like to spend a lot of time out of bed, and these hefty humans on the outskirts of Appalachia certainly have gravity on their side.
