lesbiassparrow: (morally superior)
I am not a huge Winter sports fan, though I do like hockey, so the Olympics tends to be tedious to me. However, I feel that the whole enterprise could be improved were the Olympics Committee to follow the selection process suggested by a friend, which is that all Olympic sports should be judged on one simple criteria:

Would it help you escape from wolves or Nazis?

This would help get rid of all the silly ski/snow board jumping things where you waggle the board or your skis in air for no apparent reason other than you like to look very silly. Other activities could be redesigned to involve actual wolves which would add a great deal of tension and thrills to the sport. Imagine it, a skier madly flying ahead of a pack of howling wolves who have already picked off lesser athletes...it would be a magnificent sight. It would also save on return fares and having to see disappointed faces at the finish line.

I would like to see the principle also used to cover the Summer Olympics, where it would end synchronized swimming (those wolves would just eat you up as you twirled in mid-water) and other monstrosities.
