New Olympic Sports for 2014

I was just thinking about this, and I have a couple of proposals to spice things up a little bit for the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

Bobsledcross - Just like skiiing and snowboarding, bobsledding involves going down a hill at high speeds. And just like those two sports, it's a whole lot more exciting watching four competitors race each other at the same time, dodging and whatnot.

So I think it's time for a straight up bobsled race - let's take the sport back to its roots.

Hockey - Would be much better in outdoor arenas, like what the NHL does every year. Also, is there any way to make women's hockey more exciting/relevant? How about allowing checking, like the boys? It's only fair.

Snowmobiles - Because, let's face it, they are awesome.

(and with that, I have the record for Most Videos in a Post. Sweet, sweet, victory.)


  1. Are any of those videos revlevant?

    Anyways, The Bobsledcross would be awesome, even if it was a straight down hill. I know i'd watch

  2. hah! I'd file them all under "semi-relevant," but cmon. That guy does a 360 flip after getting hit by a sled! That is awesome.

  3. Semi relevant indeed.... Creo que los posts no son necessarios. (record for most Spanish words in a comment?)

  4. I was laughing out loud at the women's hockey fight in the library. I love the goalie, watch her strategic maneuver her way out of the fight. Hysterical.

  5. More potential new sports:

    2 on 2 snowball fighting, I'll proudly rep USA.

    Also, Jump-gliding. Its like the big ski jump with hang gliding wings to see who can go the farthest. The wipeouts would be SPECTACULAR.

  6. Isn't jump gliding just the Red Bull flying event on skis?

  7. One of my friends suggested Tube Jumping (for distance? With tricks?) I think that's a win.
