you have GOT to be kidding me
Im watching ESPN right now. Guess whats on? Dart throwing. Thats right, dart throwing.
When was the last time you saw bodybuilding on ESPN? (3 am showings of old shows dont count)
Lets make a list of things less deserving to be on ESPN than bodybuilding, but somehow gets on
~poker- sitting on our fat asses smoking cigars is more of a sport then pumping iron? Disgust! Disgust!
~spelling bee. Those kids are damned smart, but that is not a sport. Makes as much sence as playing nirvana at a funeral

Yea they have been playing alot of darts lately but I think you would have an easier time trying to get them to play powerlifting than bodybuilding.

Actually I came home from work, and I saw "Darts" on ESPN, it's been on ever since, I was quite curious about a professional dart competition I was expecting it to be filmed in a bar.

Me too. Looking at other men's well developed bodies would be considered too gay for ESPN, wouldn't fly with a lot of their audience I think. However, powerlifting might make it. Body building training programs might too. But the shows themselves, I seriously doubt it.Originally Posted by B4n3 0n3

You should add Magic The Gathering tournaments to that list. I once saw that on ESPN2 and I dry heaved.Originally Posted by spatch

It's the marketing of the suits. Hell they play movies on the cartoon network now. blows my ****ing mind.

Seriously, In the locker room of my gym they have tvs...nice and all...they usually have on espn2 or espn news..
Once, I swear to god, they had on the world series of DOMINOES...I'm not even ****ing with you...DOMINOES!!!
It was the end of the world as i knew it...up was down, left was right...everything was ****ed up.

Dominoes - another competition tainted by performance enhancing drugs. I've been told that the pre-comp Dominoe warm up room is just chocked full of empty amp vials.Originally Posted by PumpingIron

I know I'd watch Reruns of WSM or some old Powerlifting meets. It'd be a hell of a lot more exciting than the world series of poker, darts, dominoes, pool, or hell even underwater basket weaving.That's the reason I watched Kiana's Flex appeal, for the workout...yeah, that's it, the workout.Originally Posted by CDB

they need more bodybuilding stuff on tv def. Even on satallite theres not one channel devoted to it, its stupid. We can have 18 cooking stations, 5 racing station, 20 spanish stations 10 music stations (like 50 if u count in that xm crap) a station for every other sport out there. 0 bodybuilding stations.

How about thow many guys are devoting their lives to world of warcraft, now this isnt on tv but if it was wed have to give them crystal meth to bring the addiction down a notch.

Actually...in Japan that stuff is on tv. When I was at school we used to get these videos sent to us (yes I was and still am a nerd) of a Japaneese tv show where people played starcraft 1 v 1 for money. It was really funny, the set that is, because they made the contestants dress up in sort of space suit looking things and they released ground fog onto the stage.Originally Posted by somewhatgifted

Maybe it's because at ESPN they try to appeal to the masses, and current BBing contests are disgusting for most average viewers.

I hear the dart players actualling load up the darts with sustanon and chuck them into each others asses to get revved up before the tournament's.
im actually looking to compete in a magic tournament but the emotional and physcial training is going to be devastating. im running an anadrol/test suspension/hgh cycle just to make ends meet. my 15 year old asian neighbor with asthma who requires frequent enemas is doing the same. its not joke people **** gets crazy when i put down my mana and attack with my golden sphinctered tyranasaurus anus.
well at least we have greg ****ing valentino and "the man's who's arms exploded" to make a positive impact on the public opinion of bodybuilding.

You understand there trying to add darts to the coattales of world serious of poker. The holdem fad is about to be over, even though there are more players now then ever. Soon enough everyone is going to shelve there chips and buy a dartboard.... people are such sheep.
But there's an Idea for you guys, start a bodybuilding/powerlifting station. I know this site pumps me up but to watch that stuff whenever would really be a motivator.
I got 5 on it.

I am hearing rumblings about an upcoming ESPN special: "Contact Shuffleboard - The Men and Their Mission"".
It seems like a real stretch.
