Spornography!!!

June 26, 2006

Was flipping through the channels on cable TV here in Chennai and one of the local language (Malayalam channel called Kairali) came up with an interesting concoction to describe the pictures of scantilly-clad sports fans and hot-shots of female tennis stars. They described it as 'spornography'. Sports and pornography combined to the likes of Kairali TV.

I happened to check the term out on Dictionary.com and it didn't turn up any results. A Google image for the same term brought up a single page for a UK fansite of the band The Cure.
