Extreme Mud Wars continues Sunday in St. Pete

Weekend warriors crowded into St. Petersburg's Spa Beach to test their mettle in the America II Extreme Mud Wars on Saturday. With thunderstorms threatening the competition, 48 creatively named teams — consider Brown-Stained Panty Snatchers and Gawky Green Giraffes — jousted, tugged, bumped, tackled, and raced each other in events ranging from dodge ball to tug of war to a mud-style sumo wrestling match. The event, which continues at 11 a.m. Sunday, is free to the public.
