that's funny. someone recently told me I should start a petition to get some press for the mag now that the olympics are happening.
but would it be a winter sport or summer?
With 'cross races starting in August, it's not impossible to think of it as a summer sport, but it'd be too weird to do it in the heat. The euros would melt.
But it'd obviously a lot more aligned with winter. Yet unlike all the other sports, it doesn't require (or even want) snow or ice. Forcing it to be a winter sport on snow would certainly change it.
I do remember in the late 90's folks talking about trying to make this happen, but I'm not sure how far those conversations went.
If it does happen, I will be the first to offer my services to the country of Georgia for $ just like their beach volleyball players who have only been to the country twice. I hope they don't care that I'm not nearly as good looking or accomplished.
