Here’s yet another stellar article from guest blogger Matt Snider, a fine young man seeking his Master’s degree in Sports Management, which makes him the smartest person ever to write for this site by far. Matt is a highly skilled writer, having honed his craft at his blog Sideline Sports, and furthered his love of sports interning at a local sports radio station. Apparently Matt also loves the Boise State Broncos, long walks on the beach, rainy days, and the collected works of Eudora Welty.

Lets start off this journey into unmasking the world’s hottest new sport by mentioning that the inventors are Stanford math students, so expect a lot of exciting integers, fractions and denominators. In an amazing new video, Ravi Fernando juggles a Rubik’s Cube and two hacky sacks, while simultaneously solving the puzzle. This sport isn’t for the faint of heart however, as Fernando has regularly competed in official Rubik’s Cube events. He has even been dubbed as “Sir Ravi the Juggler” by members of his Stanford club, “Humans of Stanford,” although I doubt that knighthood from some obscure Stanford University club holds the same weight as a knighthood from the queen.
