Trending: Souped-up tractor, Magic, boxing
By Bill Speros Special to ESPN.com
Ever see a "tractor on steroids"?
Well, you have now.
Swedish farmer Rickard Nilsson had some time on his hands recently and fitted his red farm tractor with a Volvo 240 turbo engine, turning it into a roaring, turf-tearing, doughnut-turning machine capable of speeds up to 50 mph. It's aptly named "Terror." As far as we know, no animals were harmed in the making of this video. But they were probably wondering if the Mayans were off by a month or so in their apocalyptic prediction.
The video, well worth the 4:11 investment, was posted on the mikael240karlsson YouTube channel and has received more than 3.2 million views this week.
Old MacDonald never had a farm tractor quite like it.
Meanwhile, Orlando Magic stunt team member and former University of Central Florida cheerleader Jamie Woode is expected to make a full recovery from a spill she took during Tuesday's game against the New York Knicks. Woode, 31, was in stable condition Wednesday after landing on her head and suffering three fractured vertebrae and a broken rib from the fall, which took place while trying to execute a routine between the first and second quarters.
