hey, do me a favor.
go here and vote for the sport that should be in the next olympics.

I for one voted for ultimate frisbee, but don't let that sway your decision.

that's why i like it. i'm slow and boring!

it's not so much about the game as it is about sitting outside on a nice day, chatting, reading, and socializing - and watching the guys in their nifty white flannels when the occasional interesting thing happens. which isn't often. then you clap politely and go back to what you were doing. ;)

You voted for frisbee? Yeeeesh.

I'm waiting for 2008 when China will add some martial arts stuff. It'll all be wushu, but still.

w00t!

I voted for frisbee. Mostly because I don't think twister's really much of a sport and kickball isn't fun to watch, but also because ultimate frisbee is actually a complex sport based both on strategy and skill and relates to something that a lot of people (in this country at least) are familiar with (everyone plays frisbee at beaches and BBQs and the like).

(actually I voted for frisbee cause it'd make you happy and I don't much care. The sport/game argument is a farce given some of the the newer sports added to the olympics: figure skating? ballroom dancing?rhythm gymnastics?)

Dammit, why isn't bike polo an option? Beer and bikes and stupid human tricks... what more could one want from an Olympic event?

And before you whine about it being a game, not a sport, i have two words: figure skating.

Well then, you'd better be riding a Clifcat Termoil.

You want me ride a sixteen hundred dollar machine in a game guaranteed to wreck it? Hah. Boy, you best be riding something you fished out of a dumpster.

Besides, i think i'm incapable of playing. I lack whatever innate thing it is that allows folks to tell teammates from opponents. Maybe i should start a Mounted Discordia Ball or Anarchist Polo event.

Don't be silly. That's not a $1600 machine. That's a $1600 frame for a $3000 machine. Isn't that better?

I'm not especially good at determining friend from foe either. Luckily my friends don't care if I hit them.

But, hey, stupid human tricks! I think Clifcat replaces them with no questions asked anyway. Of course, the components are a different story. Not that I'll ever spend that much on a bike frame, but still.

It's not so much the whacking as the indescriminate ball-stealing. Damage is fine, so long as you win.

Mmm, stupid human tricks and no questions asked warranties. Too bad i'm housepoor.

Indeed.

Oh well, I just spent my $800 on a new bike. Hopefully nothing will break.
