Now I really think the olympics are stupid

IOC Drops Baseball, Softball From Games
Baseball and softball were dropped Friday from the Olympic program for the 2012 London Games, making the two American-invented sports the first events cut from the Olympics in 69 years.

Each of the 28 existing sports was put to a secret vote by the International Olympic Committee, and baseball and softball failed to receive a majority required to stay on the program. The other 26 sports were retained.
I can not respect an organization or event that will value Syncronized Swimming over Baseball.

I haven't watched or cared about an olympic event since... well, for a very long time.
