Because Real Olympic Sports Bore Us, Fake Ones Aim to Entice Us

To drum up a bit of excitement for the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, The International Olympic Committee has launched The Best of Us Challenge, a collection of fake sporting events which wil pit Olympic athletes against regular people. For those who win, a free trip for to to Vancouver is in their future.

There will be hula-hooping, cartwheeling, juggling, plastic cup golfing and many more made up sports. Head over to The Best of Us Challenge site and you can watch Michael Phelps, Rafael Nadal, Lindssey Jacobellis and Shawn Johnson engage in this silliness. The site loads very slowly...or not at all.

Once upon a time plain old skiing and skating excited people. Hmm. How times have changed.
