The All-ympics

 

Are the Olympics the biggest private club in the world, or what?

It’s suppose to be a world sporting event, but most of the world’s popular sports are excluded. By popular I mean, watched on TV or have a fanbase of more than 100 people outside of the participants.

I guess the speedwalkers and pole vaulters lobby strongly against letting in popular sports.

The Olympics should open the floodgates and let all sports compete. Let’s have a truly global sporting spectacle: X-games, darts, off-road racing, logger sports, highland games, Inuit sports, marbles, sports card scrambles, buck-buck…. everything!

Who cares how many medals are given out; or that one country wins every medal in one event because they are the only country who play that sport.

It would have to be better than it is now.

Two words: synchronized diving.

note: I’m just mad because there is no “individual” synchronized swimming event.

  1. Oh please let in the Highland games! Ruddy faced Scotts in kilts! Brilliant idea.

    It is rubbish they won’t include any synchronized water events. Do they think just anybody can do it?

  2. I usually don’t watch the Olympics anyway. Did you know that there are over 1,300 children in China named “Olympics?”

    I’m making sure not to watch the Communist-lypics.
