Fox news guest slams kids doing yoga

Blogs were abuzz on Friday after a Fox News guest said that yoga was not a sport and it was leading to "wussification of America," thanks to more children practicing them.

Wussification means that the kids are being turned into wussies, which means weak and timid.

ABC News had reported on Thursday that yoga could be the "fastest-growing sport in America."

In answer to that, Fox brought parenting expert Larry Winget, author of a book called 'Your Kids Are Your Own Fault,' to explain that if the sport didn't have a ball, it was not considered a sport, the New York Daily New reported.

Daily Kos wrote that Winget felt that yoga could not be a sport if there was no ball involved or if no one was keeping scores, adding that the stupid was thick.

YogaDork mentioned in his blog other popular ball-less sports like track and field, gymnastics, swimming, diving, wrestling, equestrian and any kind of racing.

The website also wrote what was so bad about being a wuss anyway. (ANI)
