Put on your Bad Idea Snow Pants™. A bunch of Brits have decided the best and most obvious way to raise money for youth sports in England is by playing a cricket match on Mount Everest.
While touted as the highest-altitude game of cricket, I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that it’s the highest-altitude game of anything. At 17,000 feet, it’s twice as high as FIFA will let soccer players play for fear of health risks. So what are the risks, besides death by Yeti?
