BREAK DANCING

We are so happy the Olympics are no longer requiring the athletes to perform nude!

 ;D  ;D  ;D

There are some things that just don't 'seem Olympic', but are: ice dancing, rhythmic gymnastics, curling, auto racing, and one can even argue airguns (although we certainly love it) But break dancing? If this true, then it is a sad day. Especially when baseball and softball have been pushed out. For rock climbing and surfing.

I actually heard on a fishing program last Saturday that there is a movement to get bass fishing in the Olympics. I can't believe that I agree with Frank, but the rings are losing their luster.

Sad to say, but wokeness has come to the IOC.

I have a Hill EC-3000 compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your tank as a courtesy (4,250 PSI limit).

What are the new events for the 2024 Olympics?
Break dancing. Skateboarding. Climbing. Surfing. These are the new sports we may see at the 2024 Summer Olympics, per a proposal that host city Paris submitted to the International Olympic Committee last week.

They are probably trying to get new blood into viewership. Bring in sports and interests of young folks. Shrug. We already have curling...

If they want some 'new blood', they should blindfold the figure skaters and put them all out on the ice to do their routines at the same time. That should create some new blood and generate some ratings as well.

It would be better than watching dressage, that's for sure.
