10 Events That Should Be Added To The 2012 Summer Olympics

With the 2012 Summer Olympics in London less than 100 days away, we realize that there are very few sports outside of basketball we really give a damn about. So, to help give the prestigious Olympic committee an idea of what we’d rather be watching instead of synchronized swimming, rowing or frikkin’ badminton, we’ve compiled a quick list of ten events that would almost definitely increase viewership and ensure ours.

You never know. A lot can happen in three months.

1. “Assault” From American Gladiators

Chances are if you’ve ever tuned into any one of the many incarnations of American Gladiators, it was either to watch hot chicks fight each other or to see Assault. Quite different than the kind of assault that puts people in jail, this was the game where someone perched up in that awesome, Styrofoam tower and shot tennis balls from a cannon at competitors, who did everything they could to avoid leaving with welts. If we’re lucky, maybe they’ll even bring back Ice, who we would’ve happily let kick our ass.

2. BASEketball

Despite the fact they didn’t write the film, the first flick featuring South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone was and still is the best movie they’ve been a part of. Centering around two misfits who accidentally invent a H.O.R.S.E.-like sport with baseball rules, the game took off in the film and would undoubtedly add some much needed hi-jinx to the games this summer in London. After all, who wouldn’t want to see the psych-out mastered on international television?
