Do you think skateboarding should become an Olympic sport? I'm already familiar with the typical arguments against it (drug-testing, anti-establishment, etc.). Nonetheless, I keep having visions of Al Partanen winning a gold medal in men's vert.

Only if its olympic slalom and barrel jumping.  That would be rad.

Otherwise, no.

Has there been some kind of development involving skateboarding in the Olympics recently? I'll formulate an opinion if/when there is.

vert comps are already bad enough as it is, we don't need the runs to be more formulated and standardized. I saw a bit of the men's snowboarding halfpipe last night from the olympics and it was so utterly boring after 3 or 4 runs because they all do the exact same shit. but they had to do one straight fs or bs air for the judges. it was mandatory. but everything else, like the announcer's-jizz-inducing "double cork", seemed mandatory too, only in an unofficial way. it's just ludicrous in so many ways.

/not to mention...olympic outfits?? spandex? fresh? hesh? the US halfpipe team had snowpants that looked like blue jeans. madness.

I'm guessing that Diamond stud earrings and Red Bull will be involved with the team representing the U.S.

cute. but guess what? if the olympics decide to make skateboarding part of the olympics, skateboarding is gonna be part of the olympics.

it will undoubtedly suck balls, but if you think an online petition is gonna stop it, you're just plain dumb.

If they want you to go be in the olympics, just don't show up.
