You wanna know how we know that cannonball jumping (cannonballing?) is going to be an Olympic sport soon? Not because 29-year-old Doug Bermann said, "This is going to the Olympics, baby," after splashing his way to victory at the Trident Splash National Cannonball Championship in Canada. No, because he did so in a Mario outfit (seen right).
Here's what we know: Olympic aquatic gold medalists play Mario games; cannonball champ Doug Bergmann dresses up like Mario sometimes; ... actually, that's it. But really, what more do you need to know? London. 2012. Cannonballs.
