The Summer Olympics started today and for the 9th consecutive time I will not be winning a medal because yet again The International Olympic Committee (IOC) reuses to recognize the events I excel at including:
Remembering who played which parts on Beatles tracks – It’s not as always as easy as John and George on Guitars, Paul on bass and Ringo on drums. Sometimes they played different instruments and sometimes there were special guests. I can always tell you who is playing what so I’d like this to be an Olympic event.
Naming New York Mets opening day starting lineups – I can probably tell you who batted where and what position they played for every opening day lineup since the Mets very first game in 1962. the fact that this is not an official event is a clear sign of anti-Mets bias on the IOC.
Telling inappropriate stories on the internet – Have you read this blog’s archives? They are filled with medal worthy tales. It this event made the Olympics I could certainly do my country proud. It’s time that the IOC recognizes these events or we I start an Internet Olympics and rig it so that I win every event.
How about you, what lesser known events could you win a gold medal in?
