I say nay to the idea. There are more than enough Olympic sports in both the Winter and Summer versions. What I find to be sad about the Olympics and why I wouldn’t want to try to add a new sport to the roster is because in this day and age there is too much money and too much technology involved. I know that having the Olympics go back to its origins of the game is not possible. I don’t foresee the Olympic committee ever sanctioning nudity but at least getting back to basics would thereby level the playing field and that would be nice. I just can’t help but think that the Olympics have gone too far away from just the love, dedication, will and talent of the sport, whichever sport it is, to the more money behind the athlete, the farther he will go whereas the less monied athlete might never make it to the Olympics regardless of the love, dedication and talent. I find that to be a shame.
