    While in Rome, I watched a Italian beach soccer game on TV. I don't know the qualifications for an event to be on the program, but I got a feeling this is gonna catch on, and it's an Oly by 2020. Maybe 2016.

    Or has it already been approved??????

    Are "gold" and "bronze" the official tan colors the participants have to wear?

    I am assuming it was a joke but I saw a report that mini-putting was trying to be an Olympic sport.

    The US has been quite competitive in beach soccer.


    Has anyone noticed that the US national soccer team is ranked 6th in the world.

    FIFA rankings are as silly as the IAAF's. But we ARE getting good. Final 8 in 2006.

    Something I've been wondering...

    Does anybody outside of the U.S. play Ultimate Frisbee? It's a fast-growing competitive sport is this country but still a bit underground. I'd expect to see Ultimate in the Olympics someday.
    ...assuming they play it outside of the US.
