The IOC Sucks

Now that the IOC has responded to the unprecedented groundswell calling for the removal of baseball and softball from the 2012 Olympics, I hope that the networks will spend more time covering the completely ridiculous events of Team Handball, Synchonized Swimming, and Rhythmic Gymnastics.

Both sports (baseball and softball) are also considered by many to lack global appeal -- saddling some host cities with expensive facilities they will have little use for once the Olympics are over.
Well, good thing for the globally appealing Olympic Handball teams that they could probably play their games in a burned out warehouse.

Ribbon! Ball! Hoop! Bowling pins! Pathetic.
