If Leslie Langtry Ran The Olympics...

(I will post the winners of last week's contest at the end of today! Keep following!)

If I did the Olympics, things would be a little more interesting. Don't get me wrong, I love the Olympics. I just think that with a little tweaking, it could really be, well, fun!

-Curling/Rink of Fire: A glaze of grain alcohol on the ice is lit on fire as they slide with the stone. The broomers have to use live cobras to sweep the ice as the stone slides.

-Ski Jump Biathalon: Skiers have to soar through the air while shooting the wings off of mosquitos with .44mag revolvers. They don't score any points for dead mosquitos.

-Figure Skating Improv: Figure skaters won't know the song until they are poised on the ice to start. At any time, the music can change to another genre completely. For example, start with Enter Sandman by Metallica, change to Tiny Tim's Tiptoe Through the Tulips and end with polka music. To make it fair, they have to dodge cleverly disguised quicksand pits.

-Naked Men's Luge: Um, do I need a reason?

What would you come up with?

The Assassin

OMG! Too funny! What great mental images to take to work this morning!

I'd have to go with "Assassin style" Ice Hockey. It would give an entirely new meaning to "Penalty Shot" and "Shoot Out."

A penalty shot would be where the player who committed the offence would be shot. And the shoot out would be... well a shoot out. Kinda like dodge ball. The team with the last man standing would win. (Though I'd personally shoot the refs first myself....)

Would make the game alot more fun than the crap that the NHL forces us to endure.

I *love* the impromptu figure skating--that'd be a RIOT. And of course you don't need a reason for naked luge.

They don't score any points for dead mosquitos.

I didn't think there were "live" mosquitos during weather that's below 50 degrees.

I'm missing the irony, aren't I?

I think they should add hurdles to the speed skating. And maybe wolverines. Angry wolverines.

Leslie Langtry said...

You guys are good! Maybe we should start our own federation!

Tori Lennox said...

I definitely want to see these new style Olympics!

Love the ice skating idea and the angry wolverines. In curling - one of the stones has a hidden bomb - something is needed to liven up that sport lol.

I must admit...wolverines are cool. curling stones as bombs, hmmmm... I Like It!
