TRAMPOLINE????!!!!!?????
The freaking TRAMPOLINE is an olympic sport!

I take back everything I said about badminton, beach volleyball, and ping pong. But not synchronized diving (that's still stupid). THE FREAKING TRAMPOLINE DOES NOT DESERVE TO BE AN OLYMPIC SPORT.

Current Mood: confused befuddled

but are the olympics about "sports" or are they about "athletics" or both? And I would think that an artistic athletic endeavor would hve been closer to an ancient greek ordeal than mere athletic events.

While I do find it troublesome to deal with qualitative events, I do believe that gymnastics belongs in the olympic games (note it's the olympic games, not the olympic sports). I just don't think that the olympics HAVE to be about quantitative sports. They are about athletic skill, sure, but that doesn't exclude the qualitative events.

I do, however, understand why other people disagree with me.

Yes!

Someone who agrees with me!

If there's a score that's made up by a judge, it's not a sport. The nonsense over the 2002 figure skating should put to rest the idea that ice skating is for real.

Do not speak ill of Beach Volleyball. Beach Volleyball is my new favorite sport.

Go, um, pretty ladies with small bathing suits!

Trampoline in the olympics

Trampoline does deserve to be in the olympics...

at least, if they have porn stars doing it.

Because that's what everyone wants to see.. Ron Jeremy bouncing up and down...

Personally I can hardly wait until sarcasm and loathing are olympic events. But I would still probably be screwed out of a medal, just like the '86 games and my attempt at the very low hurdels.

We used to have tenants in Baltimore who place a trampoline right under an electrical wire in the back yard. Duh. I felt so dumb having to explain to the woman why this was a bad idea..but this is the same person who put uncooked rice in the sink and couldn't understand why it got clogged. Trampolines are cool, but what is next, bubble blowing??
