"This weekend at the Offical Olympic Placement of Sports(OOPS) the committee has offically decided to induct a new sport into the Olympics. The new sport will be introduced in the 2012 games in Somalia. The sports that were up for the position:
2. Mixed Martial Arts
3. Pole Diving
In the first meeting, NASCAR and Pole Diving were immediately dropped due to socialy and morally negative issues. We were left with Mixed Martial Arts and Cheerleading. The board decided to choose cheerleading over MMA, stating... "Cheerleading is a teamsport and has all of the ideal attributes that a world recognized sport should have. These athletes have heart and and the beliefs we hold true. We have decided not to use MMA as our sport becuase we feel it holds no real value to sports fans in this new millinium."
I'm pretty appauled at this - what a travesty. I don't want to bash cheerleading, but I certainly think of mma as more of a worldwide sport. And when they reason their decision with, "we feel it holds no real value to sports fans in this new millinium" that pisses me off - mma is surely a faster growing sport than cheerleading and by 2012 I see it being one of -the- major world sports.
What do you think? Please bear in mind with your replies that this thread could potentially be read by olympic commities and we don't want to just look like fools.
