go on sports illustrated's website and find the frame by frame video. its pretty good proof that he did indeed win the gold and there are just a handful of idiot conspiracy theorists naysaying.

and one of the reasons behind us pulling out of baseball for the london olympics is because our regular baseball season coincides with the olympics (and right around the time that games start counting for real). so we never send any major leaguers over, because theyd rather play for their teams in america and not jeapordize a playoff race

Cricket replace baseball? In that case, why not just make golf, darts, nascar or watching paint dry an Olympic sport?

I personally liked the excellent sportmanship Phelps displayed after his 100m butterfly win

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!
lol, if I had a dime for everytime you talked out of your ass, Paolo...

splain to me why the hell Beach Volleyball does not belong in the olympics?... you've gotta be the gayest man on earth, were you watching those womens matches!?... in the rain too!... good times fer sure.

I don't agree with the removal of baseball & softball, personally, since its the national sport of the dominican, the yankees, Japan, Cuba (to name a few), and in Canada is has a decent following for anyone that isn't overly consumed with hockey. Sure, it doesn't have a big euro following, but the only three sports that have a large euro following are soccer (pffft, which is acting, really), hockey and rugby (which is pretty badass).

Baseball is a game of reaction, strategy and anticipation... its kinda like golf; you gotta play it to appreciate it... so if you don't, then STFU (imo)

Sorry, but I've played baseball and golfed and they're both about as exciting as watching me scratch my balls. Then again, I like snowboarding, rugby, hockey and rock climbing which actually raise your pulse as opposed to the aforementioned sports which require you to be slightly catatonic.

But I see your point with Equestrian, never understood how that ended up in the Olympics.
