I wonder when DragonBoat will become an official sport (I could be the mascot! A dragon head with a martini in each hand!)...? I seem to remember reading way back that it was going to be an exhibition sport, but I don't know where or when...

I think Cornhole should be added to the venue. It's not as easy as it looks.

There's even a choice of the American Cornhole Organization or the American Cornhole Association.

Rhett and Link think it'll be an olympic sport by 2024. Why wait that long?

Notice that it's not just men doing the cornholing....women can cornhole too!!!! Finally, a sport where men and women can stand on equal ground!!

" You're going to play WHAT?"

"Cornholing...It's a sport."

"A sport...It sounds obscene."

"Nope. It's gonna be an olympic sport. See, it's REALLY hard to do. Ya take this bag.."

"A bag?"

"Yep. Ya take this bag and try to throw the bag into a hole on a board."

"A bag."

"Yep. A bag."

"How big is the bag..."

"Small enough to go into the hole on the board."

"One other thing..."

"Yea.."

"Can I play it with you?"

"Sure, but remember, before you throw the bag you gotta keep your eye on the cornhole, take a deep breath, left arm straight...Address the bag...."
