No, not a real nuthouse, but very close to it though. There are some things in this world that normal people would never do, and if you are one of those people this post may not be for you.
But, and there's always a but, all of us are crazy in our own way in one form of another.
Some people are so crazy they need to be institutionalized, while others do extreme sports or play American football.
Few weeks ago, local American football team Split Sea Wolves was visited by few coaches from Texas, who came to help the team. They brought with them donations of practice jerseys, cleats, helmets, and shoulder pads.
I attended this camp, and it is not something that I would recommend to a normal person.
So, just to show you how crazy this stuff can be, I'm about to show you a few pictures :)
Enjoy and be safe :D

Coach Mike laying out the plans for the day
"HARD WORK! On 3! HARD WORK"!!!
Guards at practice against dum opponents
Coach of the Running Backs (RBs) Laurence who plays for Zagreb Patriots and is originally from Kansas City. Great guy, and a great coach.
Offense/defense drills (offense on the right). You can see me facing off with my little brother there - you can see me with camo bandanna and red shorts, and my brother Milos in Pacers shorts and black bandanna.
Coaches gave their testimonies and read from the Bible
Lozo is the guy I almost got into a fist fight
My neighbor Dino, founder of Split Sea Wolves and childhood friend, and me at the 2nd day of camp doing group drills.
Catch the ball while it's at its highest point.
More tackle drills for the guards

Practices were 3 hours long and we played an hour or so before sunset couse it was very hot
Jason Lamb summing up the day.

More group exercises - this time it was a little competitive
Some real action - notice there is no helmets or shoulder pads, couse they haven't had arrived yet.
