U.S. blogs were abuzz on Friday after US-based Fox News reported on the "wussification of America," thanks to more kids doing yoga.
ABC News reported on Thursday that yoga may be the "fastest-growing sport in America." In answer to that, Fox trotted out parenting expert Larry Winget, author of a book called "Your Kids Are Your Own Fault," to explain that "if it doesn't have a ball, it's not a sport."
"Something tells me he's never tried arm balances, or a class so hard you have to curl up into child's pose out of exhaustion and embarrassment at your inferior form," writes blog Blisstree. "(And for that matter, I'd argue that 'singular' sports like running, swimming, and track can all teach valuable lessons about winning and losing, despite the fact that there's no score, and no ball.)"
"Oh, wait. Nevermind other popular ball-less sports like track and field, gymnastics, swimming, diving, wrestling, equestrian and any kind of racing," writes YogaDork. "Again, moot."
"In any case, not being a wuss might be overrated," adds Yoga in the Dragon's Den. "What's so bad about being a wuss, anyway?"
