A lot of the sports you refer to (popular in America) will tend to have official federations in enough countries to qualify - just not anywhere near the standard of the yanks (I'm looking at you Basketball), hence why they are in

Langeveldt: I of course blame their parents.. and unchecked immigration!
GingerFurball: He's Austrian, they tend to produce the odd ****ed up individual
Burgey: Be careful dealing with neighbours whose cars don't have wheels but whose houses do.
Uppercut: Maybe I just need better strippers
Don't think Chess should be included in the Olympics. Although I would rather have Chess than that circus act that is called Rhythm Gymnastics.
Well it's two-fold:
There was nothing wrong with his performance, no shame in not signing like you're 22 when you're pushing 40 and have lived like him. He sang very well anyway IMO
Secondly, regardless of who wrote it, it wouldn't be like the most famous song of the 90s but for him singing it in the first place
Most of the announcements being made in French first. Bollocks to that.
Quite happy to see more sports like kabaddi, squash etc. included. Trim down the swimming program, slightly more longer distance cycling but none of the anti-favourite crap. Less bollocks like 'walking', dressage etc.
I don't have a problem with sports where a score has to be awarded by judges.
I'd like to see a bit more intelligence going into some of the formats. Such as the BMX lottery. If something is a lottery it shouldn't be included. That goes for some of the shooting as well where the margins are so small it's mathematically about tossing a coin between 10-15 people (like where it's 100 shots and they hit 99).

As this Olympics has been ace, why not host them all over here?
How are we going to convince the rest of the world?
