    The worst Olympic sport

    Some may think badminton, some may think diving. But for me - rhythmic gymnastics is the hands down stupidest thing I have ever seen!

    Re: The worst Olympic sport

    The equestrian events have to be up there, yesterday there was one with a guy in a top hat riding a horse that did nothing but trot around the arena for 4-5 minutes.

    But the ribbon dancers that are on right now are miserable.

    Geez I kind of like badminton.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Re: The worst Olympic sport

    Walking fast is by far the worst Olympic sport.
    "Hey man, what did you get your Gold in?"
    "Walking! Had a new PR. How about you?"
    "Uh, I ran the 800 meters in 1 minute 40 seconds for a new WR."
    "That's cool. We have alot in common then."

    Re: The worst Olympic sport

    I'm sick to death of watching Volleyball as it dominates NBC's coverage. (The Indoor Kind)

    Sailing and anything synchronised also bore's me

    Ribbon tossing or ball tossing whatever you call it.

    Re: The worst Olympic sport

    That one sport where two bikers indoor do like three laps but don't try til a lap and a half or last lap. No idea what it's called but I still haven't been able to figure it out and neither did the announcers.

    Perhaps I am Bias but i Love the cycling. And i think your talking about the Individual Sprint. It's all about tactics early on, However i do agree they may as well just start with one and a half laps left.

    Re: The worst Olympic sport

    I saw some Team Synchronized Swimming which was utterly ridiculous. Followed closely by a horse dancing around to techno music.

    At least they did away with solo synchronized swimming. That was the biggest oxymoron ever.


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.
