Default A Major Sport Excluded from the Olympics!

The Olympics Are A Joke! Why Was A Major Sporting Event Excluded From Olympic Glory?

I am upset about the Olympics. It is a sham, a terrible shame, that a major sporting event has been overlooked and excluded from Olympic glory. This should be a major event in the Olympic games, I tell you! It is dramatic, it is dangerous, it is intense, it is a requirement of great skill and coordination as well as rigorous training. I am talking about, of course, Extreme Ironing.

Welcome to the home of extreme ironing - the latest danger sport that combines the thrills of an extreme outdoor activity with the satisfaction of a well pressed shirt.

I have boycotted the Olympics ever since they turned down my petition to include Triad as a recognized event.

I would love to have been on the Triad team but of course those tiny suits wouldnt be much good in the cold. Although it would say something about the endurance of Warriors. Although I am still holding out for the Medieval Combat rounds to be entered into the Olympics. My sword arm is very well maintained and heck who would need steroids when fear would be the best medicine. Especially when you are being chased by a man/woman on horse back.

I couldn't say, don't know to be honest. Hadn't heard anything about that myself.

Don't they realize that there are brothers of man right now fighting to score points out there among the stars?

Yeah, baseball is off the list of events for the next summer games.

As to extreme ironing not being a sport, WTF????? If that's not in there and baseball's not in there, what's the point???
