How to castrate a lamb

I learned this rather "interesting" tidbit from New York Giants offensive lineman Grey Ruegamer:

Castrating a lamb with your teeth is a pretty simple procedure, really. Grey Ruegamer knows. "You grab the forelegs and pin them to the ground, and then you grab the back legs and throw them on their back," Ruegamer said. And when the, uh, target area is exposed, "away you go. It's the way the Basques do it. ...

"I was hesitant," Ruegamer said with a laugh. "But it is what it is. ... There was beer. Good times. It was worth it."

As for the procedure itself, "you pull them out with your teeth, spit them in a bucket, next one."

If I was a New England Patriots pass rusher, I would be very nervous. --Jim Buzinski
