baseball / softball aka shitball! bag o bollocks.

like beach volleyball, what the fek is it doing in the olympics in the first place?

baseball, a national sport in cuba, america and japan (and a tiny bit in canaduh. hardly good for international interest.

now cricket.... (the one day, finite number of overs variety; not the never ending test match, egg sandwiches and cuppa tea type nonsense) would be a good addition; you have teams from europe, asia and the antipodeans... plus even a growing following in the US (to a tiny extent).... that would fit the venue at least.

meanwhile, BMX rahhhhhh! tip top choice!

incidentally, did phelps really win his 100m butterfly gold?
Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!
