..new events - 2020 olympics..
« on: July 23, 2019, 07:26:45 AM »
.
I see that skateboarding and climbing up a wall are "events" to be added to the 2020 olympics in tokyo - guess we'll have to wait to see Beer Pong competition at that level   :th_thicon_cry:

(2 more reasons to "pass" on viewing/showing any interest the "modern olympics")

i quit watching any olympic event some years ago when
they started using professional "sports" figures.

that, and some of the stupid events they've added as
posted up there ^ ^ ^

maybe if they added women's competitive stocking modeling,
or women's nude gymnastics or the like . . . . :afraid4:

Have to respectfully disagree with you Ranger. Russia and friends had (have) pro caliber players on steroids earning medal after medal through the 1990's. Michael Jordan, Larry Bird et al changed all that in 1992.
The same with baseball. After the USA dominated the sport for years they cancelled it. Japan was the only competitor. Same with softball.

Gee I wish curling was a year round sport and required to graduate high school.

Is there anything that could be more exciting than watching guys in flat shoes slide rocks over melting ice?
Go ahead, I don’t think you can name one.  :scream3:

sorry but I disagree with you Alte.....because most everyone else was/is "cheating" by using drugs/professionals it's no valid reason for the US to do the same

and, once corrupted, rather than acquiesce or worse, do the same we should leave the competitions.....my opinion

competing as women for many years as well.
