Flotsam said:I think we're looking at new Olympic sport in '08
This could be the answer to pulling off the International APUG Conference. First, we convince the IOC that balls-out downhill Deardorf riding would be a much better televised sport than that one where they prance around waving a ribbon on a stick. That shouldn't be difficult. Then we just all convince our home nations that we will bring home the gold in this exciting new sport.
We get to have our APUG conference, we get to see and participate in the Olympics, we'll all get high-tech, leading edge, graphite composite racing cameras and tripods and sexy spandex aero suits, and, with luck, some of us won't careen to our deaths on an ill conconceived ride down a mountainside in a poorly thought out competition.
C'mon, Where's the downside?
