Cars in The Olympics...Really?!
Here's the stupidest sports idea to come along in awhile. Formula One racing authorities (those are the open-wheeled cars that race in international competitions around the world)applied to have F1 declared an Olympic sport. International Olympic Committee President Jacques Rogge said the Olympics, "are competition for the athletes, not for equipment." TALKING POINTS: Major League Baseball is half-way through it's season. The Allstar Game is Tuesday night at 8 pm. If you want to watch something cool watch the homerun derby tonight at 8 pm on ESPN. It's fun to watch some of these guys crush a baseball. Roger Federer won his 7th Wimbledon championship and Serena Williams won her 5th. Golfers from South Korea have won the Women's US Open four out of the last five years. What up wid dat? If you have friends who are NASCAR fans or if you're one, a good question to ask is why do NASCAR revenues keep dropping. They're down over 30%. The economy, all the drivers look the same, people are tired of watching folks turn left for 3 hours? Whataya think? THE OLYMPICS ARE COMING! THE OLYMPICS ARE COMING!
