Hold Up

Why are the following Olympic sports? (or sports at all?):

women's basketball
field hockey

They all kinda suck.

Hey now... women's softball doesn't suck! Lisa Fernandez and Jennie Finch are some great softball players. It's just an underrated sport.

Now field hockey... what a waste!

I was going to defend field hockey from that list. It's pretty intense, and there are more than 1 or 2 teams in the world that can win, unlike the other two. And what about fencing? I tried watching some of that and man, was it boring.

Good players and intensity mean nothing to me. I just hate watching women play the majority of sports. They're good at tennis, swimming, and the dance related ones like gymnastics and figure skating. I'm also ok when they ski.

CBK said...

But Field Hockey is also a men's sport!

Miss Scarlet said...

Yes, CBK, and I bet men's field hockey is much more entertaining. There are just a few sports where the women make it a snooze fest. Not all of them-I think women's tennis can be more exciting than men's sometimes.

Fencing is cool bc it's so old skool. I've always wanted to try that.
