    The other day, I was watching a few minutes of the gold metal ping-pong match between China and Korea. I was amazed that ping-pong is an olympic event. I really enjoy playing it, but watching it, is kinda akin to watching paint dry.

    So, what are some things you wouldn't want seen as an olympic event?

    I'll go first:

    Competitive kniting......
