A lot of people seem miffed that baseball is not an Olympic sport this year. I don’t really care that much either way – the only summer Olympic sports I like are synchronized diving because, seriously, that’s awesome and super weird – but I do think that Being Gregor Blanco needs to be an Olympic sport. Sure, Gregor Blanco would always win, but it would still be a fantastically fun sport to watch. ‘Cause, you know, he does things like this.
Just watch it a few times. (WordPress won’t let me imbed it, so you gotta go the old-fashioned way and actually click a link.)
While we’re at it, David Beckham Coming Down the Thames With the Olympic Torch should also probably be a sport. Alternately, Beating the Mets Who Are 8.5 Out of First Place and Hit Even Worse Than We Do. I’ll present it to the IOC next time I run into them in Starbucks or whatever.
p.s. Does not demonstrate that I am harboring delusions that I decided to talk about something good rather than… pretty much everything else on the Giants front. I’m just being an optimist over here/letting it all stew so I can write a nasty post tomorrow. Sound good to y’all? Then it’s a plan.
