I don't care if it's synchronized swimming, diving, ice dancing, judges should never determine the winners of contest.
But Gordon those sports are hard.
Neurosurgery is hard as well. Not a sport.
While this is a harden belief in my world view, it appears I may need to retreat on it.
Apparently, pole dancing is coming to the Olympics....
A group of supporters has started a petition to get pole dancing into the Olympic games.
It's not what you might think. Often associated with strip clubs, pole dancing is also an increasingly popular way for women to stay in shape.
"It's automatically assumed it has something to do with stripping," Lizz Schofield, owner of a Utah dance studio where "Pole Fitness" is in vogue, told KUTV.com, the Web site for a Salt Lake-area CBS affiliate. "But this is not stripping at all."
Her studio has joined others around the globe in an effort to bring pole dancing to London. The petition does not indicate how many signatures it is seeking, but there were over 500 signatures as of Friday afternoon.
OK OK we'll allow pole dancing as a sport as long as Madonna doesn't show up.
