New intense sport - Ghosting

Updated on July 31, 2010

A new Sport!

New sports are hard to come by nowadays. Almost everything is invented and really only truly great thinkers can achieve new sports. Well Hamish and Andy are just that! Coming from down under, the duo of brilliance give birth to what will become the biggest new sport in all major cites: Ghosting! This cheap sport is so entertaining and fun to do, it could lead to large scale weight loss in the US, maybe even the globe! I know there is probably a ton of questions going on in your head right now, same with me (what the hell aren't you writing it?) but shortly they will all be explained.

The act of ghosting.
The act of ghosting.

What is Ghosting? How is it done.

Ghosting - the sport in which someone acts in a way a "target" wouldn't notice, after the target passes the ghost (player) the ghost follows the target as close as possible without the target noticing they are there. The longer you can follow unnoticed, the better your score. The person who can follow a target longest is the winner for the time, period, or tournament\event.

What if the score is close?

If a duo or team of people have scores that are close in there scoring system they choose, there is a tie breaker event. This is called "Speed Ghosting". Speed Ghosting is when you follow someone who is doing any of the following:

Running
Skateboarding
Rollerblading
Biking

Whoever can Speed Ghost the longest is the winner of the day/event.

History

Ghosting is a new day form of Mime. Mimes for many years have been following people in public to create laughs.

Ghosting was founded and named by Hamish and Andy.

Ghosting came out in 2009.

This is one of the only articles about the sport online.
