I just watch it for the beautiful women..... Same with Gymnastics.... But what i realy like to see (not in a gay way) is the weightlifting in olympics.... Being a weight lifter myself my 400lbs squat max looks like nothing to these guys =(...

I'll forgive you for saying that, seeing as you live in Tenessee ;) Curling is actually a big deal in just about every other dominant winter sports nation except the U.S. I live in Canada, and when the men's or women's team gets to the gold medal finals, it gets more press coverage and more front pages of newspapers than anything other than hockey.

As for some sports being considered "more worthy" than paintball for being in the Olympics, I know I was aghast when they tried out bowling as a "test" Olympic sport. Paintball will probably never get into the Olympics... I think most "X-Treme" sports have a bias against them in those kind of circles. If we were to see BMX and skateboarding, or perhaps motorcross get in, then I think we might have a chance.
