    I was watching a Baseball Tonight rerun just now when I accidentally happened on one of the strangest thing I've ever seen: world-championship cup-stacking (or speed stacking, as the cool kids put it).
    This is unbelievable. Who thinks this crap is a sport?
    By the way, it's on ESPN right now - and they are taking it waaay too seriously.
    I mean, this stuff makes the hot-dog eating championships look like Wimbledon.

    An interesting skill to have. Not a sport, to me. But it's been standardized, picked up at schools, sort of the pogs of the new millenium:

    The world champion, a girl from Minnesota was on Craig Ferguson last night. This has actually been pretty popular (as far as I could tell) in some High schools for at least 5 years.

    I wonder if this will replace curling as a winter Olympics sport.

    Hey, it's better than flashing gang signs in the hallway.

    When you think about it...

    How stupid are jumping rope, jaxs and hopscotch when you see them for the first time?

    Stack away kids.

    Sorry, no defense for this stuff.

    ESPN just plays this crap so "Cheap Seats: It's back" has some tape to use in 2095.

    You get a hard on for tractor pulls?

    Honestly I would rather get one hour of cup stacking if it means 46 hours of NBA draft coverage instead of 47 hours.

    Mein Gott in Himmel.

    Can we pick a specific point in the space-time continuum when ESPN jumped the shark?

    Has anyone ever seen World Championship Scrabble on ESPN2? I have, and while it's incredibly boring, it's also ... incredibly boring.
