But come on folks, it takes a helluva lot more athleticism to do what Natasha Wang, the current U.S. Pole Dancing Federation Champion, is doing right here than some of the other so called "sports" that are currently Olympic events. Anyone who can support their own body weight on that teeny, tiny pole and do moves like a trained gymnast should get a medal in my humble opinion. Plus, think of the increase in male viewers for this event. The ratings jump alone may well be worth givin' the pole a shot. So here are some of the Olympic events that I personally think are just too damn wimpy to be deserving of any kind of Olympic status.
Table Tennis. Uh yea, you aren't in middle school anymore dudes.
Curling. Any "sport" that allows its participants to wear clown pants and use a broom belongs in a circus, not in the Olympics.
Badminton. A picnic pastime turned Olympic event for wannabee Serenas and Rogers.
Power walking. For those "athletes" who failed to make the track and field team.
Synchronized swimming. Too lame ass for words.
So I believe the time has come folks for the pole to make an appearance at the Olympic games. There is somethin' for everyone to enjoy about this event. There are male and female competitions, as well as singles and doubles. Lemme tell ya, I will certainly be watchin' those lean, mean pole dancin' machines doin' what they do best up and down that shiny silver stick. And if ya haven't seen her before, Lulu could be a serious competitor in this sport, even if America's Got Talent wasn't the correct venue. Lulu is gonna take home the gold baby!!!! Have a look/see.
