    I'm glad you like it.
    It's one of the top sports in Slovenia and it's especially entertaining to watch live, in the arena. Only if you are there, you are able to see how physical this sport is. No fights are allowed but you have everything else and there are no helmets. 140 km per hour shots and no protection at all. Headshots are of course especially dangerous. The goalies in this sport are heroes.

    When I walk my dog at night I notice every TV is tuned into the Olympics. I usually am into them but I've been too busy this last few weeks to even turn on the TV let alone watch.

    Yeah, but I agree with TRDI this time. B-ball is really not needed since most of the countries don't play it. And at the sametime get rid of that wussie soccer thing also!

    I would actually agree with football getting removed. I'm a fan but I just don't find it interesting. It's nothing compared to World Cup or even European Championship. Also the U23 regulation made it a third tier competition.

    Are you OK with ping-pong and badmitten though? Yeesh!! They are both just tennis wannabes.

    Might as well add horse-shoes and bowling.

    I was watching Badminton one time, and the commentary said it was the 2nd most played sport in the world. The sad part is, is that America doesn't know about it. Period.

    I personally don't care for tennis, so badminton is kind of simliar to it. Table Tennis just makes me blow up in laughter. Just with the small table, and how serious they look with their footing. Plus they yell and grunt all the time like tennis players. Pretty hilarious!

    While it seems like most of you are allergic to the "like" button, I just want to personally say thanks for looking anyway.
