Upping The Anty

Now that the 2004 Summer Olympics have come to a rather uneventful close, I have come up with a blueprint for ways to increase the excitement level of the next Summer Olympics. I figure we might as well start considering some options now since the next Olympics will be here before we know it.

1. In reality TV mode, we have been trained to vote off of the "weakest" player. So, why not with the Olympics? Let's hold a vote off every night instead of leaving it up to the judges. This works two fold; gets rid of the pesky judges who are often biased anyhow and it keeps viewers at home glued to their tv sets.

2. Turn the Olympics into a Woodstock of sorts. In between events, have things like musical performances and sword swallowing attractions. Better yet, combine the two. Steven Tyler and the boys are long overdue for a blockbuster power ballad anyhow so chances are, they'd be game.

3. Hold a "Circus of the Stars" event where you get past winners who are also, mostly past their prime, and have them compete against each other again. This works well for the Winter Olympics as well cause personally, I'd love to see Scott Hamilton still skate circles around Brian Boitano. For me, watching Boitano go down never grows old.

4. Add events average people can participate in and relate to like video game triathlons, beer drinking competitions and Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon faceoffs.

5. Kick current events up a notch by making them even harder and thus, more spectacular. No longer would landing within the square without wobbling be enough in the land of floor gymnastics. Oh no. If the gymnast lands outside the designated square, give them a little electric shock. Nothing like a little performance incentive to put things into perspective.

Of course, these are all just ideas off the top of my head. Once we iron out the kinks though, I think we're pretty good to go.
