The debate over what is legitimate sport and what is mere recreation is a seemingly neverending discourse. Golf, NASCAR, strong man competitions…spelling bee. Hey, it’s on ESPN. I think it’s fair to include spelling bee. Every year, the spelling bee hits ESPN’s airwaves, and we all respond similarly: “Really ESPN? The world wide leader in sports?”
Yo-yo most certainly falls in the recreation category, but unlike the spelling bee, I wish this had been shown on ESPN. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome to the stage Janos Karancz - your 2013 World Yo-Yo Contest Champion. This dude is incredible. I’m just wondering, why no shoes? I would think you’d want that tootsie protection in the event of a mishap. I don’t know. I suck at yo-yo, so who am I to question this guy?
