Forget the World Cup

Why wasn’t the bi-decade Swiss shooting competition being broadcast wall-to-wall on ESPN? Not only is it a better sport than soccer but it also lacks the sound of vuvuzelas. By the way shooting is a huge there over there:

That’s right 45,000 individual shooters participated! Hell yeah!
