    The MLB is presently in-season.

    The NBA is presently off-season.
    We live in a time where our planet suffers from two epidemics simultaneously - starvation and obesity.

    Look at all these little kids taking care of the music biz, don't their business take good care of me.

    I have the fire, I have the force, I have the power to make my evil take it's course.

  3. in the next olympics i heard they are going to take out the baseball and softball bkuz we dominate.

    As it turns out, not this year. It seems that out softball and baseball teams looked a little too far ahead and got whacked.

    Do you you mean MLB? If so, I would guess because you get tested if you win.

  8. Did women's softball lose the gold? I realize that mostly no one cares about this sport, but I want to make sure we get the easy golds where we can while all of those Chinese infants snag the gymnastics medals.

  9. Yes, they lost the gold in the last game against China I think it was.

  10. It was Japan, the chicks lost to.

    The reason both baseball and softball were removed, is political. A large chunk of the voting power is held by European delegates. That and the lack of Global interest in Baseball.

  11. I hate to tell you this but if we did send MLB players to the olympics, we still might get our butts kicked since quite a few of the players that you know and love would be playing for other countries. Just a reality check.

    Good question, btw, I noticed your Superman clip. Do you know what iconic movie George Reeves had a feature part in. HInt (it was way before both of our times.

    I will confess I did google doing research of George when I was looking for original Superman footage.

    Gone with the wind.

  16. saw an interview Bob Costas did with one of the Olympic committee honchos. He said there were 2 reasons they were kicking baseball and softball from the Olympics. 1) Because of the problems with doping (steroids) that have come to media attention 2) because the U.S. tends to dominate.

    Costas argued that softball was being removed basically because it was guilty by association with baseball and that the committee members were too ignorant to distinguish b/t the 2. the honcho guy agreed but said softball didn't do enough to argue its case.

    I think 2 is a complete BS reason. They should kick table tennis based on that.

    The honcho guy said maybe they can come back in 2016 but there are other sports like karate that are trying get in too and only like 4 slots open for new sports.

    Probably won't see MLB in there for a long time.

    Thanks for being honest. I remember as a young kid seeing Gone with the Wind for the 1st time and asking my mom why Superman was in it and what happened to his powers (lol). btw, does anyone remember the big push in the 70's to try to get bodybuilding into the olympics.

    I have yet to see Gone with the Wind in its entirety. Other than some classic scenes and quotes.
