Obama-Palin Dream Team

I guess the only way for basketball stars to grab more gold medals in the Olympics is to introduce more variety to the sports in the future summer games. For instance, one-on-one, two-on-two, three-on-three, and mixed doubles and triples. Maybe, there should also be a slam dunk, free throw line and three-point shootout.

Adidas has popularized, for example, the three-on-three basketabll genre. The NBA has its legend+male+female basketball exhibit during the All-Star week.

If this comes to fruition, I believe USA would have its real “dream team” in the mixed doubles. I refer to a blockbuster, hard-to-beat Obama-Palin tandem.

Yeah, Barry and the Barracuda could easily lick any competition … on and off the court!

New Olympic events for GRP

In the midst of finger-pointing and the blame game

it’s back to square one for Team Philippines as the debacle in Beijing takes center stage at next week’s sports summit of sports leaders.

I strongly suggest that the country, aka GRP (to align with GB, host of the 2012 Games), concentrate in the following events where I am certain our sports leaders can easily take podium positions:

Finals of the sleeping on the job race:

Finals of scene-stealing event:

Finals of the sweeping our problems under the mat:

Finals of easily giving up on peace and love:

Finals of not taking full responsibility:

And lastly, please do not blame poverty, in the Finals of biting the hands that feed us and eating the goose that lays the golden medals:

I’m pretty sure that the GRP would win hands down in these six events in London.

San Francisco

People of all kinds are once again flocking to San Francisco.

Where before it was after gold, now it is after the world’s newest sports – the clash between those for Tibet or for China via the Olympic torch relay, and/or to hide from immigration officials.
