Most Olympic sports are garbage anyway, I would take it a step further than MDD did.

SoMelo, I must give you a BIG F when it comes to Olympic knowledge. Team Handball was a demostration sport during the 1984 Games, which means it outlasted BASEBALL as an Olympic Sport! The sport was also held in Orange County during the '84 games in the Cal State Fullerton gym.

PS, your kids are great guys and good college students, but I would not go to far and try to brand them as Olympic Athletes in any sport!
It's very big in Europe. I know there are pro leagues in Germany. Maybe other countries as well.
They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

Ouch!! You've just crushed them.. That's okay, regardless if Calvin Ball ever makes it as an Olympic Sport, I'm still their biggest fan.

You need to learn a lesson from this, at least I was polite and didn't take cheap swipes at them, Noto would have either called them p_s_ies or that they have sex with animals. I just do not understand why the moderators (yes, this is intended for you also) lets him post some of the stuff he does.

Maybe because I have a junior Noto in my house. I must be immune to his blather --:--

Not sure if it is just because i recently started running, but I love the running events, especially the sprints. I also like the swimming events as well.

I enjoy both also, although except for the redeam team, I can enjoy wtaching any of the competeions. I just do not enjoy how the NBA'ers just flip the switch on and on, I would rather see them play hard from the beginning and when they get tired, put in the subs.

I am deeply offended sir and demand satisfaction.

Also I have never posted about anyone having sex with animals, feels like you have something to confess about.

I only remember the spice girls as young hot things. I can't remember one of their songs. Now the other grandpas on SoMelo's list have some real British history.

I don't know much about the Spice Girls, why does Posh always looked pissed off? She's married to Beckham for crying out loud!
