Seriously Mr.C, they're adding in more sports to the summer olympics, and golf at that pfatle....If they want to add in a sport they need to start pulling ones out, I mean there's already what five times as many summer sports as there are winter ones. These sports include such thrills as badminton, archery, and aquatics, now they want to tople golf in on top of the list? I mean really half these sports used to be for richmen relaxing, rich woman killing time, and folks practicing for survival. They're all things you do in your backyard for chilling out, or entertainment at the family reunion. Badminton is only fun to watch when uncle Phil goes chasing after the birdy and tumbles over the bar-b-que grill, or little Johny clotheslining himself on the net. Golf as alwasy been hailed the greatest game, leave it at that it's a game, fun to play, but torturous to watch.
They have two channels running twenty four hours a day dedicated to showing the olympics, and a high bidder picking up the best events for broadcast...Still we miss out on what's going on, tell me who won the gold medal in archery, or equestrian at the most recent games....I mean really how many people in this audience can do that right now, anyone of you? I know certainly the panel I sit with will struggle by far to think of even a first letter, hell looking at Gideon he's trying to figure out what exactly equestrian means. They keep adding sport's how much more meaningless can the summer games get, you don't get to see or watch them all. Can barely follow medalists with out a laminated flow chart and a dry erase marker.
Wait I got it, split the summer games and slide them over into the winter bracket, rowing on a frozen river will become a lot more interesting. Fencing with each swordsman slipping and falling around an ice-rink, priceless. Swap handball over to something involving snowballs, and lets see I think wrestling would be a lot more entertaining on ice, too. First you got all the traction issues, then you get your man down for a pin, how long you think his back is going to splay out on the ice? He'll want to get up three or four times as bad twice as quick.
They want to add sports okay fine, can we get some definitions on sports first? Then when we do, and they add golf, so Tiger can go out there and take all his racial frustrations out on a little white ball and get gold medals for it, or some other new sport they add pull one off. The summer games are quickly losing out on what they once meant and once stood for, because no one can keep up and show respect all around...The list needs to be trimmed down, not built up...Really, I would be perfectly fine if they take'em all out leaving women's team, and pair volleyball with nothing else. Heck they wouldn't even have to have court and sand, one or the other would be fine, preferably beach, but I'm good with just that Mr. C.
(ooc)sorry for the delay, been busy servicing kade's pipes...completely swamped with that, found a coconut, self playing piano, all four sizes of poodle, a french maid, vipers winter warddrope, DC's throne, and well it's a really long list and I've just barely begun...(/ooc)
