An individual sport played mainly in basements and hotel banquet rooms. Men square off against each other naked. Points are scored by obtaining a firm grip on another player's meatsicle. Bonus points are awarded for special moves or handicaps. Some of these include the Tallahassee Trap Door or playing with lubed rubber gloves. Upon execution of a full fist grip, it is a custom to belittle your opponent by screaming GOTCHA!
