Kiteboarding takes wind out of surfers' sails

According to the Amateur Athletic Foundation of Los Angeles, the first step to becoming a recognized sport of the Summer Games requires being organized into an international federation and having male participants in at least 75 countries on four continents and female participants in at least 40 countries on three continents. You really mean to tell me that there are this many people on the globe who actually participate in this sport, let alone compete in it? What’s next? Quidditch, perhaps, or howzabout 43-man Squamish?

I guess it was inevitable. Everything eventually jumps the shark, and I think that if the IOOC hadn’t already splashed down when they adding synchronized swimming and rhythmic gymnastics while ignoring baseball, they’re definitely approaching the takeoff ramp now.
