Considering we have an Awesome.Real Life page, I'm gonna assume no.

We're not supposed to have YMMV pages for Real Life but... it seems like we do. Prolly gonna need a mod to chime in.

Moment of Awesome isn't listed on No Real Life Examples, Please!.

Are YMMV items in general forbidden from real life sections? Quickly scrolling through YMMV.Home Page, I see that Complete Monster is listed on NRLEP, implying that this is not the default.

I remember those kinds of pages got cut from other sporting events like the World Cup.

Asked the rest of the staff to be sure. Axe away.

^ On what basis? Is it "no Real Life YMMV", "no Real Life Awesome", or something narrower? (If it's one of the first two, there's a lot more to clean up.)

And this has come up repeatedly for the other Awesome/ subpages for Sports, and the staff have never been able to reach a consensus. Should those be axed as well?

I have similar concerns about almost everything in Olympic Games.

IIRC, it is discussed and the reason Real Life can has Awesome (and Heartwarming, I think) pages is mostly because it's mostly harmless.

But when it come to competitive event like sport, I find it dubious personally. For every victor's moment of awesome, there's more loser's moment of suck.

I don't really agree on this cut and have brought it up in response to Berrenta's internal query.


How well does it match the trope?
