Paris France has decided not to retain softball in the 2024 Olympics. They have decided yo add surfing, skateboarding and breakdancing instead. Have to wait until 2028 and see if Los Angeles decides.

The Olympics are a complete joke anymore.

Was in Canada 2005 when the announcement that England was confirmed as host of the next in rotation for the summer Olympics. International squads were rejoicing and the buzz around the ball park was palpable. All smiles and comments of, "See you there".

Then the follow-up that there would be no there, there. Thanks Jim...for nothing.

Find it curious that added Olympic sports are all adjudged not truly competed. If karate was whoever was left standing, OK. But it will be akin to the many boxing fiascos. Surfing, skateboarding, breakdancing? Orly? But I'd be in more agreement with the idea that a meter with a giant needle scored each competitor by crowd noise. Most awesome cheer wins. Judges? Antithesis of those sports in general. 

"Jones was disqualified for not performing the two required Smith grinds."

 Olympic sports? To quote the rabbit,

"Tricks are for kids."
