    Re: World Sport Stacking Championship???

    I just got to my hotel and turned on the TV (to ESPN first of course) and saw the same thing, and had the same thoughts.
    What the heck is this?


    Just when I was thinking that we Americans will make a sport out of anything, some poor girl from the UK had a bad time and the announcer made referance to one of the competitors from Germany I think.
    So this is not only a sport, it is a worldwide sport?????

    I too was lucky enough to run into this while turning on ESPN this morning.
    Even though the whole thing was pretty stupid I found myself watching for a while.
    I thought it was pretty funny when the two teams competing for the relay or whatever were German team 1 and German team 2...what a compelling matchup...
    the best part of the whole thing is the announcers who are trying to make the thing seem legit like they were commentating for the superbowl or something, nice way to begin your spots broadcasting career!

    ;D didn't think about that.
    No matter how low you think the sport is you would have to assume that the commentators for the event have invented a new low in the profession.
    Do they have a play-by-play and a color commentator?

    This is actually being implented in a ton of phy ed classes across the nation to work on kids hand eye coordination. In my P.E. classes, I don't teach it, I prefer more active activities in PE.

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    If you ever implement it maybe we can get Ned to ref it and Coj can do the commentating with Del Rio for color commentator.

    LOL, I think the commentators would be more exciting than the event itself!

    I don't know the true definition of sport is, but I would say that cup stacking is not a sport.
