You know what's crazy mad fun?

Live professional wrestling.

You know it's fake, everyone else over the age of eight in the audience knows it's fake, but it's so much fun and such a spectacle, even the bottom of the ladder local matches I saw last night, you get hooked and you can't help but whoop and holler.
The performers do it for the love of performing, none of them is making any kind of money to speak of off it, so they really put their hearts in to it.  They interact with the crazy fans, who are just as much fun to watch as the wrestlers, and they put on quite a show.

I highly recommend going to see some live professional wrestling.  It's a piece of genuine Americana that you'll really love if you stop being such a snob and give yourself over to it.  It's in the same category as roller derby, once you go, you'll love it.

I remember watching Roller Derby on the tv as a kid. Those women scared me, they were more vicious than the men.
