When did jumping on a trampoline become an Olympic sport?
You know, "And now girls jumping on trampolines!"
When did synchronized diving become an Olympic sport?
And why two people?
Let's make it harder ~ have eight or ten or even twenty people dive at the same time.
That was always the easy way out of PE class...
I get the synchronized swimming thing (sort of ~ Jim just laughs).
But where is the Esther Willams' aspect of this "sport"?
Why only two girls?
I want to see twenty women with noseplugs on trying not to drown.
And why not men?
Why are some sports for one sex and not the other?
I want to see guys doing backflips on the balance beam.
In Junior High the girls always had to do the parallel bars ~ why is this only for men now?
Why only synchronized diving and swimming?
John wants to see synchronized boxing.
I personally want to see synchronized trampolining and synchronized badminton.
And maybe at the same time.
Do a flip and hit the birdie
The horse is doing all the work.
And if equestrian is in there, what about all the other cowboy sports?
Bull riding, cattle roping, barrel racing, bronc riding...
Rifles, pistols, skeet.
What about Uzi, semi-automatics and sawed off shotguns?
How about a game from my high school days ~ Beer Pong?
And here are some other Olympic Games that I would like to see:
Unicycling ~ no end to this one!
They could have
Yoga ~ who can stay in downward facing dog the longest and with the best form?
Skateboarding ~ wait, is that already in there?
Carol wants to see jump roping.
I want to see hopscotch.
What about bowling?
Roller Skating ~ Inline 1000 meter, roller derby style where they beat the crap out of each other...
Stilts ~ 100 meter, 400 meter, relays, marathons...
Pogo Sticks ~ 50 yard dash, pogo stick over the pole vault bar...
Who can go the longest?
Who has the best tricks?
Caber Toss (hey, they have the hammer throw, why not this?)
Dodge Ball (oops, that might be in there somewhere too)
Pin the Tail on the Donkey
(it's very similar to archery!)
Chutes and Ladders
The list is endless...
