Extreme Mud Wars get down and dirty in St. Petersburg

Jared Franklin, 30, of Tampa crawls back to the side of the rink Sunday while competing in the eliminator event during the Tampa Bay Club Sport Extreme Mud Wars at Spa Beach Park in St. Petersburg. "I love the mud," Franklin said. "I still can't see though." The two-day event included dodge ball, belly bumpers, joust, obstacle course, tug-of-war, eliminator, ball frenzy and football. All teams required six competitors (including at least two female members). At left, mud drips from the hands of Matt Moser as he pulls on the rope while in the front position for his team "Mud Butts" during the tug-of-war event. Dozens of teams participated in the event.
