vanishedone commented on the word hornussen
Although it's #3 on Cracked's list of baffling sports, it didn't strike me as strange enough for the Oddympics list. 'Some claim it's a cross between baseball and golf, but in reality it only has a passing similarity to either... The name derives from the German word for hornet, because of the buzzing noise the hornuss makes as it flies through the air.'
