I actually called and emailed them because in the past they didnt show the National College Wrestling Championships and I really wanted to watch them. They could easily show them tape delayed during the middle of the night for all i cared, i would just tape it. The response I got was that ultimately wrestling (the real stuff) just hasnt garnered the viewership and sponsership to make it worth their while. I understood, eventhough it was hard to believe that people were watching bowling and some of those things over something like what I wanted.

The funny thing is that their stance changed a few years back and now thankfully they televise much of it and some of it live.

There is only one "Sport" I watch other than football at this point, and it pounds baseball into the ground.

"Ninja Warrior!"

What an awesome show.

"Ninja Warrior!"

What an awesome show.
I agree!

It reminds me of the confidence course in basic training.

By the way, part of the two courses I had to do in basic training was shown in the movie Stripes. That was the easy one.

Someguy in my school tried to convince me that baseball was the most popular sport in America. He said football is too rough and that not so many should like it. WTF? I was really mad. NOONE DISSES FOOTBALL TO MY FACE!
