Let the games begin

Recommended Posts

People,

Tonight (for me, for not Europeans an other daytime) is the opening of the Olympics 2004 in Athene.

Hopely it gonna be a nice, great and sportive games.

Off course I hope the mine country will take medals at home.

My favourite sports what I gonna watch is Cycling (men and women) and Baseball.

About baseball I have a question for our American friends: Why doesn't USA don't compete the baseball game?

 

Salute

Dutchy

Hey Dutchy,

I used to think that it will only be a matter of time before the MLB association bends the rules to let league players compete for their own national teams.

Then again, maybe not because the Olympic Games begins in the middle (second half) of the regular MLB season. I don't know how or if the various teams would want to risk their standings in the league. I imagine some teams would have much larger gaps in their rosters than others.

When do they start rolling the rock across the floor? Now that's an event I can't wait to see.lol

Can we bring back Gladiators and Lions??? I might stay interested then.

Actually there Dutchy the so-called Dream team this year by far does not measure up to the dream teams of yesteryear. I don't understand how they twisted the rules to allow Professional Athletes to compete in the Olympics. I had somehow thought the Olympics were about amatuer Athletes competeing. So I think it's humerous that the Basketball team lost, even though I know that other countries are also using NBA Basketball stars to prop up their teams also. :D
