Cornhole gets great niche "sport" ratings on ESPN and now strives for entry into the Olympics games :(

Yep your right! Its the same reason Black Jack is so popular at the casinos, if you can count a little bit you might win and if you cant you still might win, doesnt take much thinking and little talent.

Its always easy to market things that require little effort to participate in.., you want grow a plant buy a Chia Pet!

I saw some college cornhole on TV a few weeks ago, and they managed to stick it in the hole about 95% of the time. In the hole, in the hole, in the hole. It was more boring than watching a bunch of pros break and runout in 9-ball, rack after rack.

Don't see how anyone can sit through that.
I could sit thru 30 min. of championship frisbee, but not even one min of Cornhole.

Cornhole is basically the summer version of curling, and whenever curling is on it gets a lot of people watching and cheering for the teams to pull off a good shot.

Well ESPN is not dumb if Cornhole makes em money, they will cover.


ESPN is business in business to make money, not too loose bucks.

Many people say how cool it would be to have a Pool room, it will not stay open long if it operates in RED.

Here's the new Guinness record for cornhole. Olympic membership can't be far behind.

Here is desk laugh at Cornhole, it is what we called BEAN BAD TOSS.

Creativity, Marketing, and Hyping it made it something.

Pool could do same thing with money behind effort.

Plus some people working for good of all Pool, not just their little pods.

I. personally, don't care if cornhole gets to the Olympics, but if it does get top the Olympics:: the distance from thrower to the cornhole should be at least 50 yards !

People think there is some formula that will unlock pool and cause the masses to tune in. Truth is, the game just isn’t that compelling to watch for all but the most dedicated fans. It doesn’t matter the rules, the promoter, or who’s playing, the public doesn’t care.

I know nothing about volleyball, but the first time I saw a women's beach volleyball match, it caught my eye...
