I would like to see lacrosse, however I don't know hom many countries play it outside of the US and Canada. It seems to be a very North American sport.

I can't see football being added. It's only played in 2 countries and those are different versions of the game.

I don't think you will see any extreme sports. I don't see roller hockey because most of the top players are people who couldn't get too far in pro Ice Hockey. I remember the RHI was nothing but guys from the ECHL and those level leagues.

I thought Golf was in the olympics

Personally I would like to see the olympics go to "true Sports" and cut all these events that have judges.

Bowling and darts--I just want to see the opening ceremonies with the beer guts on the darts & bowling teams!

(I know not all bowlers and dart players have beer guts--but many I see on TV do--It would be even better if they marched in with a beer stein in one hand)

Comic Sans walks into a bar, and the bartender says, "Sorry, we don't serve your type here."

Actually, Tug-Of-War was an Olympic sport early in the 20th Century for the record.

"I better go take a long walk off a short pier or something."

Some people on this bolard have told me to do just that.
