    LOL. Perhaps you're referring to "dressage"?

    Slightly Jets Related Trivia: Bruce Springsteen's daughter (of New Jersey) competes in the related sport of horse jumping down here in Palm Beach, Florida in the winter.

    Now let's get back to Oval-Shaped-Ball-Activities, or whatever it's called.

    You talking Water Polo or Diving?

    Divers have perfect bods.

    So far I've only seen the women compete though.

    Some dudes are into those bovine farmer's daughter types.

    Someone has to love 'em.

    Oh, I get your fascination now.

    Water polo. By "2 meter," i mean the hole girls, and, I don't mean they're not fit, just, well...bigger.

    I saw one the other day (forget which team).

    She must've been from SeaWorld.

    lol, I thought your first post reeked of being a totally unknowledgeable moron when it came to non main stream sports. You upped your game though.

    Don't worry you are the type of person tv media markets to though. They assume that the person watching knows jack squat.

    Holly Mangold is less of an inspirational athlete than Gabby Douglas? Holly is breaking down barriers for non-traditionally built women in athletics. You try and lift what she does.

    That's why they show Water Polo for Water Polo fans like you?

    Good one, you just stepped in your own sh!t. Idiot.

    Was watching the US women's vs China at lunch.

    It's the most lax gym-class level joke of a sport.

    There's no talent involved except for some casual swimming.

    Every shot goes in unless it's terribly off-target.

    The goalies couldn't block a 72" beachball.

    They have fun at least.

    I get you don't like it, but it's definitely not easy. As a mater of fact, even though we've never meet and I have no knowledge of your age, fitness level, or athletic background, I submit to you that you couldn't do it.

    Are you really that lame? obviously so... If Holly is breaking down barriers that's great, we need more people becoming physically active, especially youth... On the other hand why would I try and lift what she does, im a boxing coach, heavy lifting is unnecessary...
