2010 Olympic changes

I see with the continuing mild weather and heavy rains, that some versatility is going to be in order for the Olympics. Alternate events are going to have to be planned. I'm going to start off suggesting two or three and other can add to it so we have a list to send Mr. Campbell and Vanoc.
Downhill skiing can replaced by water skiing on the Capilano or Mamquam River.
Ski jumping could be replaced with water skiing over a ramp set up in Alice Lake
Togobban racing could be replaced with soap box racing down "The Cut" on the Upper Levels Highway.
Anyone care to add more?

Money is no object, we will pay for it while others will sack up their profits and go home. This blasted thing, will drain our treasury and leave us in debt for decades
BC folks will eventually get even with the government for what they have inflicted
on us and this government could face the same fate as the NDP did some years
ago

Cross country slush skiing could replace the downhill.

The always popular ice ball fight.

It might be too sloppy for the regular biathlon so rather than rifles and targets we give the competitors paintball guns and let them shoot at each other. They would get so many points for a hit an the one with the most hits wins

I think bobsledding would be far more entertaining if they used little red wagons. That would be a real sport, 4 men or women trying to jump on the wagon and going down the track. Seriously, think about it!

Canada's GREATEST sport:





Barrel jumping!

That's why the world loves Canada!

For some reason or other "pork barrel" comes to mind (in a nagging sort of way) - must be a manifestation of early stage dementia as I'm sure the term has no relevence to the subject.

Did someone say curling? I love it...have been watching as many games in the Tournament of Hearts as possible. And you're right Johnny - PEI is hot, in more ways than one! The field has never looked better...
