I'll be trying this tomorrow... maybe modified since I don't have any rings! I'll post my time(s) here.
Nobody else gonna post any times?
Don't have rings either anywhere close and probably couldn't use them because of an injury at the moment.
What would be a good substitute for the rings?
I suppose if you had one of those cable machines with 2 handles which were pretty close together you could load the stack to the max weight and use those?

One other option is to use dips as a substitute exercise.
To be honest, there's no replacement for the rings, so you'll have to either follow the principle and use two movements (handstand pushup and another to target the chest/delts/tris) or just follow the same protocol but use different exercises (eg chins and dips)
Have fun if you do it, and POST THE TIME :D
EDIT - looking at the crossfit site (http://www.crossfit.com/mt-archive2/000838.html), there are a number of people asking about substitute exercises as, obviously, most people have no rings!!! One suggestion was regular dips, another was jumping pullups.
SECOND EDIT - oops... didn't catch the bit about the injury! As El Macho said, If you can't do them because of an injury, don't bother trying! There's always the option of sticking chins in instead :)

For dips, well, a regular dip station and a pair of towels. You grap a towel in each dip handle, then you grab the towels rather than the handles when you do the dip. If you have a wrist injury, however (I assume that's what you are referring to Phrost), I would avoid anything resembling a dip (rings or no rings) if I were you, at least not until you heal.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
