Default Olympic Breakdancing?

Watching the CWS and noticed a blurb on the reader saying something about the Olympic debut of breakdancing. Didn't believe what I was seeing and had to look it up. Yep, it has been provisionally approved as an Olympic event.

What the what!?!?!

Anything that relies on anything other than a quantifiable score and not some judge's "judgement and opinion" isn't an olympic sport IMO. That means ice dancing, skating other than speed skating, gymnastics, synchronized swimming, etc---nope.

There is a dude at my gym that claims he has a good shot at the Olympic team. He showed me his YouTube Channel... the dude can move in ways that just hurt to think about and I am in **** good shape.

So, yeah it apparently is still a thing even though it was news to me up until about 3 months ago.

The Olympics should include real athletes and athletic events only. Freestyle snowboarding, break dancing, and other BS is just pathetic. I haven't watched the Olympics in many years and don't plan on starting anytime soon.

Saw a story on this on Fox 4 this morning. WTH? I mean, watching a good break dancer is pretty cool. They can do some pretty cool stuff. But, dancing in any form is not a sport. Yes, it requires athletic ability, but if it requires judges to compile the score, it's not a sport, IMO.

Maybe because it's called Americas Pastime and not The Worlds Pastime?

I'm all in for that, I do very well at changing the channel...as well as cranking up the volume when people start talking while I'm watching something
