Juggling on TV?

Im beginning to think that the weird "sports" on TV trend started by ESPN is starting to go too far. I think it started with their coverage of the National Spelling Bee and then went to the next level with their World Series of Poker coverage. Last night while folding my laundry before going to bed I caught the World Juggling Federation Championships on ESPN. It was really strange stuff, but in some ways its much more a sport than Spelling Bee or poker as it does require freakish physical skill. And those Galchenko kids were freaking amazing. Throw in Penn Gillette of Penn & Teller fame as a commentator and you have pretty compelling sport.

"There's not a woman in the world that believes that Luther Campbell of 2 Live Crew actually has a dick big enough that he killed a women with it. Unfortunately, women are not strong enough in Congress to be able to stand up and say, 'I've heard other guys say that their dicks are that big. They're lying. I know what the average dick size is. I also know where the ranges are. He's just saying shit. And you know something else, while we're here, Agatha Christie didn't kill anybody. Goodnight, everybody. Drive carefully."
