NIIGATA, JAPAN -- It's a sport that probably won't be in the Winter Olympics anytime soon, but it sure is fun to watch. It's called: Husband-throwing. The Japanese custom is practiced every year in the middle of January. Three newlyweds participated this year, where the kimono-clad husbands were carried to the top of a hill -- and thrown one-by-one into around six feet of snow.
