Synchronized diving?!? 

Rob A. wants to know why nobody told him that "synchronized diving" had become an Olympic sport. Jeff Jarvis thinks it's dumb. It is.

The concept of "synchronization," it seems to me, can be applied to virtually any sport. What about gymnastics? Why are we screwing around with these silly one-at-a-time events, when we could haul in another couple of balance beams and synchronize up the whole thing? Or, having mastered synchronicity (is that a word, or only the title of an album?), could we then move to asynchronous competition? Two gymnasts have to do simultaneous floor exercises on the same mat without whacking each other. That would be awesome!
