How they rally up people at this Iowa's men's gymnastics competition (and perhaps other competitions/events too):
[quote]They're funny because it seems as though at sporting events, both collegiate and professional, there's always one thing you can count on - entertainment from the fan-friendly mini-games that take place during halftime and intermissions. You know, the ones so pointless and painfully easy, you can't help but be drawn to the action.[/quote]
[quote]I'm not saying these small games aren't fun or festive, but perhaps there is a little too much ambition put toward luring people to some of the lesser-acknowledged sports.
Even with the fan-made T-shirts, which made me laugh. On the back, they read, "they even practice on the weekends" and pictured a silhouette of a gymnast doing a handstand on top of a keg.[/quote]
Funny...! :D :D Ya, colleges don't really practice on Saturdays like the club gymnastics.
