Really Bad Ways To Make Any Facet of the Olympic Games More Exciting

Everyone's gotta be naked like in the old days. them Greeks wasn't crazy! (DaphnetheRed@yahoo.com; rod.renner@juno.com)

Full contact synchronized diving. (madavis62@alltel.net) Ummmm...

Arrange a wardrobe malfunction for Lolo Jones, Maria Sharapova and Jennie Finch. (skibip@aol.com)

All events performed while riding llamas. (seeker@vcoms.net) Ummmm...

Fill the Olympic diving pool with cement…uh, I mean, Jell-O. (ponytayl@cox.net) And give athletes cereal box endorsements with Cap'n Crunch....uh, I mean "Wheaties" (no, I don't).

Add a mane, tail, and long eyelashes to the pommel horse. (ponytayl@cox.net) And??? You and the llama guy need to exchange emails.

If you think the new swimsuits helped...put sharks in the pool and really watch the times go down. (Steve_medel@oxy.com)

Periodically inject video footage of viewers reactions to having their NBC programming pre-empted for sixteen days. (Airfarcewon@aol.com) Hmmm, maybe that's why every medal ceremony ended with the "Law & Order" sound effect...viewer withdrawal symptoms.

Razor blades on top of the hurdles. (skibip@aol.com)

Electrify anything the athlete touches. Imagine how exciting the hurdles would be...sides of the pool...relay baton...volleyball net...uneven bars... the possibilities are endless! Bwaaaahahaha! (kirstenlmsw@gmail.com)

Winners can immediately auction off their medals, live, on eBay. (seeker@vcoms.net) Already been done...look here.

All synchronized events must be done with blindfolds on. (ParisIuvsMe@aol.com)

Here I am, at the 100 yard dash, where thanks to Viagra I am also running the 200, the 400 and the marathon as well and ending with a pole vault. (davidgotribe@aol.com) The term for that is "looooongshot"!

Have someone sneak in and saw the diving board half way through. (Airfarcewon@aol.com) Seems this would be really funny...ONCE.

Stop with all the niceness and fake friendships at the closing ceremonies and have a large free for all brawl. Last ones standing get to keep the medals. (madavis62@alltel.net)

Losers get tossed into the Olympic flame. (DaphnetheRed@yahoo.com) Can we also throw Andrea Kremer in there as well? Does this woman actually get PAID to be that lousy an interviewer?

The heck with who can THROW a javelin...let's see someone try to catch one with their teeth. (DaphnetheRed@yahoo.com)

The winners:

You mean there's such a thing as a "relaxed" Robin Williams?...

Have an excited Robin Williams narrate. (tphyll@aol.com)

This gets even better if the judges are Terri Hatcher , Felicity Huffman and Eva Longoria...

Triple jump is now over a small child, a pet and a pile of Legos while carrying two bags of groceries. (YeIIowRoseOTX@aol.com)
