    NEW YORK, Jan. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- On Thursday, February 2nd at 10:00 pm
 ET/PT and Saturday, February 4th at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT, "The Outdoorsmen: Blood,
 Sweat and Beers," a testosterone and beer-filled 90-minute feature will air on
 Spike TV.  The docu-comedy, which was screened at the 2005 Tribeca Film
 Festival, brings us into the bizarre world of the Outdoorsmen, an annual
 all-day event in the secluded woodlands of Washington State that combines
 physical competition with high-speed beer chugging.
     "Most of the year, these men are your everyday co-workers, husbands and
 dads, but for one weekend, they just go nuts," said Nicholas Kalikow, the
 film's Executive Producer.  "Scott did a great job capturing the madness,
 humor, camaraderie and determination that goes into this completely unique
     Teams like Diesel 'N' Dust and The Libertarians compete in challenges with
 names like "Death Race 3000," "The Iron Man" and "Blind Man's Beer," the
 latter of which is described as follows: "2 men blindfolded, 4 beers, big
 circle, find 'em, drink 'em."  When they are not competitively chugging beers,
 they do a lot of tossing -- logs, tires, rocks and perhaps most disturbingly -
 - hatchets.
