Default The Olympics have become a joke

Growing up, the Olympics were always a big deal. It was an opportunity to see the best ATHLETES from around the world. It seems like since the 1980s the integrity and interest in the Olympics has waned. However the introduction of breakdancing as a "sport" will no doubt increase interest and viewership. Too funny. We had better see a 2-step event in the future!

I look at the sports that interest me and flip the channel on what does not......starting with ice skating and ribbon dancing gymnasts. I'm sure the Greeks a few thousand years ago would not recognize the games they started. Time marches on as Bruce Jenner is now Kaitlyn......who would thunk it in 1976?

Have become? That spectacle has been a joke for decades now. What used to be a truly amatuer competition has become a very professional competition. Add in all the politics involved and I lost interest. What was it about 10 years ago they decide softball would no longer be included in the Olympics but Break Dancing is. Give me a break(pun, lol).

i guess none of you guys have ever surfed before.. Id be willing to say it would change your mind when you get held down for 45 seconds flipping underwater just to resurface and paddle your lights out to try and beat the next set wave...
It truly is an unmatched cardio and its long overdue for olympics.


little sample

I like the one-on-one competition or competition against the clock, and not the skating, etc where judges award scores based on their opinions. Break dancing--nah-I don't think so.

He epitomized the Olympics in '76, as the best athlete in the world.
Sadly, she now epitomizes what the Olympics is becoming.
