My brother theorizes that extreme sports have almost run their course, and people will soon lose interest. The question is, what will replace them? Extreme intellectual endeavors? Super tag-team sonnet composition?
I nourish the unlikely hope that the next big thing in America will be Sumo Wrestling. It has fast-paced, quick matches (some of which last only seconds!), it's fun to watch, and it seems ideally suited to America, a country with a plentiful supply of people who like to eat a lot. That last part is a joke, since real Sumo wrestlers are strong, quick, skillful athletes and not couch potatoes. I really do enjoy watching Sumo.
