WHY IS THIS A SPORT????


Dude, have you looked at some of the Winter Olympic events? Curling has more sport to it than half of what else is going on. I mean, we're strapping people to sleds and throwing them down an ice tube to see how fast they can reach the bottom without dying. Then that wasn't enough so we made a second person lie on top of the first person and threw them both down the ice tube to see if they die. Then we got bored of that and just decided to cram 3-4 people butt to crotch in a single death sled with a 50/50 chance of flipping over and grinding their heads on the ground for 500 metres or so.

These aren't sports. These are drunken bets people declared as sports to hide their embarrassment from paramedics.

So my plan to get tiddlywinks introduced as a olympic sport is possible!!! Though it will be hard after the pansy slap riot after the controversial 2007 internationals

So many hurt feelings

I like curling. It does take skill, not incredible physical power, but I think its cool. I'm waiting for Curling Girls, the anime. I can pretty much guarantee you there is or will be a manga somewhere. If Japan womens had gold medaled, there would probably be a higher chance, but never say never! I mean cmon, there's been scuba diving, fishing, karuta, shogi, table tennis, tennis, baseball, butt and boob wrestling, cycling, sidecar, rally, wat else?
Surfing. Been waiting years for surfing anime. Since the sport will be included in the 2020 Tokyo games, now is the perfect opportunity.

Good one, there's been a number of characters who surf, but not a show devoted to it. I forgot to mention tanks, airsoft, dance, skating as other "sports" anime that ave been done. Superheroism. Eating, no wait, I don't think that was an anime, yet. Cooking.
