    Default OLYMPIC EQUESTRIAN Cruel and Unusual … for the Fans

    TMZ's making fun of our sport. They posted a small article saying that our sport is "boring" and "cruel".

    Personifies what I'd call "snark for the sake of trendiness."

    Consider the source and ignore.

    This would be the same that show that reports the every move of Paris Hilton and Brittany Spears...because that info is so intellectually stimulating.

    Default Good grief...

    Yep, brought to you by folks who consider the following item (listed below the Olympic Equestrian video) to be newsworthy:

    "Kim Kardashian's Ass - BIGGER THAN EVER!"



    Maybe it wouldn't be quite that big if she rode horses, but nobody at TMZ would ever believe that, since I'm sure they all fall squarely in the "The horse does all the work" camp...
