I say professional wrestling, because every now and then you're like, "Yeah,
I guess he could be ramming his knee into the canvas as some sort of
stablilizing technique, rather than to create a sound effect for the fake
punches that he's landing on this guy who seems curiously uninterested in
breaking free of the extremely weak headlock he's in."

Your thoughts?  Comments?

Oh yeah everytime a wrestler fake punches someone he jumps down on his
knee.  I believe you meant his foot, not his knee.

Nice try though.

I don't want to be hated, but for some reason people
hate me for just trying to be nice to them on usenet.

For some reason when I speak/type the truth, people think
I'm trying to be controversial, well I'm not, I'm just being
myself.  Even though I am the most controversial person on
usenet, it is not because I want to be or chose to be.
It was a title that has been given to me by the voters
of usenet awards.
:(

Sometimes, you can get inside the judges head.  When the gymnast
messes up, "He/She was second place in the World's last year; it
couldn't have been a slip!  I'll give them points for artistry!"

I'm not sure a gymnast can be in the top five unless their standing
has already been establsihed outside of the Olympics.  Some gymnasts
are so highly regarded, it seems they can only LOSE the event.  Even
the announcers seem to have drunk the Kool-Aid.

i thought pro-wrestling was team gymnastics. come down to it that's
what it is. and there is something like a plot...well there's the old
man v. man conflict. not really a plot per se. and it's amusing if you
have a beer while you watch.

This is Romania - for a little bit extra you can add *anything* to it,
even DADV.
