was left out of the winter olympics.

I'd like to see figure skating individual elements, i.e. separate jumps, spins and footwork medals, like gymnasts have.

If there is a guy on top, he would have a way of “locking in”, so to speak

Providing the bottom slender is willing, of course


That’s just naughty, Heretic.

33. Snow Shoveling


If "weightlifting" is a sport, this one seems a natural.

As it is, we already have people out sweeping ice and shouting during the curling.

After the curling is done, just dump a couple of feet of snow on the lane, position a yard tractor at one end, give them shovels, and the first one to get the tractor to the end of the lane wins.

If lifting heavy things and throwing them is a sport, add snow shoveling

45. Real sport: Skijoring

Skijoring is Swedish for “hey y’all, watch this.”

You need:
One water ski tow rope
One pair cross country skis
One race horse with rider
One complete fucking idiot

Attach one end of rope to the horse, and the other end to the CFI. Have horse take off at a dead run. Rules are similar to The Hunger Games: the last person left alive is the winner.
