Australian Kid Takes On Entire Watermelon At Cricket Match, Loses

Sometimes in this life, we must take on challenges too big, bite off more than we can chew, and fail, to grow into bigger, more fully realized people. What follows is a short story about a young Australian cricket fan, a watermelon, and testing your limits.

This here is Mitch, the son of Australian radio host Tony Schibeci, simply enjoying a Big Bash League game between the Melbourne Stars and the Melbourne Renegades, as well as a massive melon. He tried to take down the fruit, rind and all, with vigor and a youthful appetite, but he was not successful. I respect the Australian people for eating every part of the watermelon.


Clearly young Mitch came prepared for a fight, those wristbands are crucial in powering through the watermelon at full speed.

Even heroes must sleep.
