    Wrestling. The same sport available in schools accross the world.

    Olympics: FAIL. Gotta get rid of a long-iconic Olympic sport for Golf? Seriously? Personally, I agree with a buddy that it shouldn’t be an Olympic sport unless there is a reasonable chance for advanced bodily injury. Badminton, Golf and Synchronized Swimming should all go the way of the dinosaur.

    The Olympics should be run as their Founding Fathers intended.
    All athletes should compete in the nude.

    Good cartoon. (Unintended pun on Olympic Beer)
    Wrestling should be preserved.
    If this “evolution” continues, one can imagine Olympic Video Games.

    There you go! That’s gifted foresight. An’ a likely outcome.

    Our species has ceased to be content with the natural pace of evolution as established by God and nature…Now evolution is politically mandated – with the mantra of political correctness being the ever-present standard by which all is judged…and the outcome is generally both disappointing and destructive.

    Man is not evolving – but DEvolving and regressing back to a less civilized state with self being the primary and overriding concern in all things…We are stepping back from God, from education, from peaceful coexistance with our own species, and from the peaceful advancement of our species for the good of all…It seems that it is now “All for one (me!) an’ Screw You!”

    Sad, isn’t it? – how we think we are going forward when in reality we are continually going backward?

    Why the “Hook’em” sign? Is he making fun of the great University of Texas? Should be an Aggie after our great governor.

    Keep wrestling, and yes, eliminate the “pros” from competing, in any events. BTW, when our school system cancelled funding for wrestling, cross-country, and skiing, we formed a parents group to fund those three sports, all three now in the Olympics. However, being the US, the school board DID fund football, and took money from education, not just the three sports we funded as parents, to fund the football program.

    It is a shame that commercialism is taking away the true Olympic spirit.

    Here’s what I would pay to see: when some idiotic sports talking head asks a silver-medal-winner, “Aren’t you disappointed you didn’t win the gold?”

    The athlete should answer: “Today, I proved I’m the second-best, out of seven billion, at what I do. Can you say that?”

    That would be an Olympic moment frozen in time.

    The IOC would rather have present soft core porn with beach volleyball than the 2500 plus year old tradition of wrestling.

    Wrestling is the purest sport of all. It is about strength, endurance, skill, and mental tenacity. One on One. No bad bounces of the ball, no team-mate screwing up, few bad referee calls and no high-tech equipment advantages. It requires the maximum dedication and conditioning to excell.

    It is a sport ever child in the world can participate in as there is no expensive high-tech equipment, manicured playing field, tennis court, etc. required (i.e. it is a level playing field.)

    An original Olympic sport! Is the marathon next?
