So what does Daniel Tosh of “The Tosh.0 Show” and Javale McGee and Nick Young of “The Nick & Javale Show” have in common?  They are all over 6’3 and funny but the answer is they are all crazy enough to take The Cinnamon Challenge.

So what the hell is the Cinnamon Challenge. It’s is a popular dare game in which a person attempts to swallow a tablespoon of cinnamon without vomiting or inhaling the powder. Thousands of videos with people attempting the challenge have been uploaded on YouTube — few succeed.

Nick and Javale, who have been putting out some of the best entertainment this summer while we they take an extended vacation, thought it would be amusing to take the challenge.  I’m not going to tell you what happens but what didn’t happen was Nick Young showed up wearing Jordans, ate the cinnamon, asked for seconds before heading to the arena to put up 30 points and 2 Sportscenter worthy dunks where hopefully the announcer will pronounce “neither” correctly this time.

So why the hell did I plug Tosh.0 and Daniel Tosh in this.  Not because I think he has one of the funniest shows on TV but because we had a rap group together in elementary school and our influences were Public Enemy & 2 Live Crew (we are from Florida – give us a break). His brother also develops games for EA sports (but not the recent disappointing NBA Lives ones) so you can thank the Tosh family for making the world a better place.

So if you are crazy like Javale, Nick or Daniel.  Post your attempt at the Cinnamon challenge on Facebook, Youtube or Twitter and let us know about it and then we will post and/or shout out the best ones.
