If only you could throw javelins at the hurdlers! *sigh*

The Olympics could be better if they took more from the ancient Romans. Currently they suck.

Imagine unfed Lions and somebody that has to get over those hurdles FAST to reach the door out of the colliseum. Steroids ain't got nothin' on that, I bet all world records would be beaten...or eaten (sorry but it rhymed and was spur o the moment)

I've always liked the olympics type games. I'll probably check this one out. I'd like to see weightlifting but I sort of doubt it'll be in this one.
