I could have sworn somebody told me ballroom dancing was at the Olympics, but it isn't on the list. Neither is Pool or Chess. <br><br>

The lions were in Rome, Italy, (the Colosseum), not Athens Greece. (The Acropolis).<br><br>Bring back naked athletes rubbed down in olive oil. (Except they're all men. Bummer.)<br><br>paper cuts hurt

If the female athletes competed in the nude, you would have the highest ratings in television history...(except the discus throwing)<br><br>

I would have to agree with you since beach volleyball is all about the butt crack shot. There is one or two 100 meter women who I would have to avert my eyes. But the rest of them, rub 'em down with olive oil and fire the gun.<br><br>paper cuts hurt

The marksmanship ones bother me. A gun is a machine. Shooting may be a competition, but it's not atheletics. Now what they should have done in honor of the original Greek olympics is have all the athletes compete nude. <br><br>

#1 for me...#2 loses points for the tattoo, and while I wouldn't kick her out of bed for eating crackers, Brazil is a bit manly. <br><br>

table tennis and badminton are two of my favorites to watch. i enjoy playing both and i keep meaning to join the USTTA because one of the olympic table tennis players competes in our local Grand Rapids leg of the USTTA and i want to compete against him.<br><br>the one that gets me is trampoline. huh?<br><br>of course, equestrian looks at how well a horse competes. that's silly for the olympics.<br><br>rhythmic gymnastics? is that the event where they play with streamers?<br><br>and shooting, i agree with michael. you should at least have to exert yourself physically to be considered a sport.<br><br>"Tribal sovereignty means that, it's sovereign.

I watched the five minutes that the network devoted to the finals of the trampoline competition. Left me entirely cold, although it was neat to watch a clip where they superimposed one competitor's preliminaries with her finals. The moves, position, and height were almost identical throughout.<br><br>And, for entertainment, it was great to see the judges' heads <br><br>

trampoline competition now that makes for a all nude event <br><br>

Rick had never seen it before. On our vacation he waffled between going out to work on his car and coming back in asking, "Is that volleyball on again yet?".<br>I almost feel gypped. The women look lovely like they are all oiled up and smooth to the touch. The men are in baggy clothes, unshaven and their hair looks dirty. Rather than being attractive, they look like they stink. Although clean them up and there are a couple of cuties. So we just watch the women.<br><br>

Uhm... ever played badminton at a competitive level? Try it and then tell me it doesn't require athletic ability.<br><br>Table tennis can tire you out too.<br><br>As for shooting though? I don't get that one.<br><br><br>

Re: Olympic "sports?" - 08/23/04 09:03 AM

Agreed. And I'll add trampoline to that list. It's mix of gymnastics and pure stamina. Anyone who has ever spent even 1 minute just jumping up and down on a trampoline can tell you that you get winded doing it. It requires a lot of balance and concentration, as well as a healthy set of lungs.<br><br>

Re: Olympic "sports?" - 08/23/04 09:31 AM

Oh yes, I agree. That trampoline looked like hard hard work. It just wasn't all that exciting, at least for me.<br><br>
Posted by: MacGizmo

Re: Olympic "sports?" - 08/23/04 09:47 AM

Yeah, it's not too terribly exciting... but it's still a far cry more exciting than shooting, golf and 90% of the track & field events. <br><br>

Re: Olympic "sports?" - 08/23/04 10:11 AM

Golf is not a spectator sport. It's not a participant sport either, as far as I'm concerned <br><br>The way they do fencing at these kind of events, that's not too exciting either.<br><br>

Shooting I understand more than Badminton and Table Tennis. Shooting is like Archery, a game of skill rather than physical exertion.<br><br>I'm just holding out for Foosball....<br><br>

Foosball does rock!! We have one in the break room too. As a teenager...I was a Foosball God!! My skills have been a bit rusty of late though.<br><br>We also have a Ping Pong table. I'm OK at that but...the large contingent of Laotian workers in our factory will annihilate the average player.

Re: Olympic "sports?" - 08/23/04 07:08 PM

Foosball does rock. My left hand (back hand ) has a stronger snap so I could score a bit until they figured out how to stop the back line from firing.<br><br>Only time I was thrown out of a bar bodily was when I was playing foosball.
