Olympic Games

In our last Game Time, we asked for Headlines to an article about water on Mars. Then we left it up to you to choose a winner. And choose you did. Tony was declared the winner. Oh, good job! Good job!

For those of you who don't know, the Olympics start today. Wait, this year the Olympics are in Beijing, China. So that means we should say the Olympics started today. Past tense! Anyway, since we at the Pake Shlake Band are rather fond of games, this is one of our favorite times of the year. Or every four years. Or every two years. So we thought this would be an appropriate question:

If you got to add an Olympic event, what would it be?

You know how they have synchronized swimming and synchronized diving? We think they should add synchronized parallel parking. You'd get points for how precise your turning angles are. And be sure to avoid the 3 tenth's deduction for bumping the curb!

What do you think should be added to the Olympic Games? Post your answer by Tuesday.


  1. The Bobathalon- Similar to the biathalon, except after the cross country skiing portion, participants take their rifles and shoot Bob Costas.

  2. How about adding a three-legged race to track and field. Imagine how fast that would be!

  3. Watersliding - or summer luge

  4. The Hammer Bob Costas

  5. Horse racing. Not with jockeys, but actual people racing horses. These guys are FAST, I think they could beat old horses. Let find out together as one world.
