                        How are you gonna put a summo wrestler to play hockey without any hockey training. Makes no sense

                            Honestly the worst thing I've ever seen. So many flaws in this, so many things wrong. This should be deleted from human history.

                                      No but if they had the 1,000 pound guy there would be no gap in the middle like there was with the 2 guys

                                        so what if the 1000 pound dude can't get out of bed!? Just lift him with a crane! This video proves nothing the dude shot through the middle of the two fat guys that hole wouldn't be there with the real deal jabba the hut just sitting there covering the whole net!

                                                        I love how his pads are backwards

                                                          I could do goalie. 6'4", 350 lbs.

                                                          The difference between me and a sumo wrestler is speed. I'm faster.
                                                          Also, I would put the correct pad on correct leg.
                                                          AND I can do the butterfly, because I actually have a clue about the game.

                                                          This idea has potential, it just has to be done correctly.

                                                            its because he cant move and is practicaly already in the net, if he knew how, he would move up a bit towards the shooter, making himself then bigger than the net, u really thought a sumo would fill in a whole net? like look at the size of both, this isnt science at all this is just a bunch of baloney

                                                              I think if the guy had a little work done with a pro goalie he would have been able to stop a couple shots
