Getting rid of Baseball & Softball at the Olympics: The reason doesn’t add up.

Alright perhaps I’m missing something here, the IOC is getting rid of both baseball and softball from the summer Olympics and here is the reason.

They say they aren’t getting the “heavy hitters” the “dream teams” in baseball. While in softball (womens sporting event) the US has those “heavy hitters” that “dream team” so much so it seems no one can beat them. They have held the gold since 1996 when they game was put into the Olympics.

So the IOC bitches and complains they aren’t getting what they want on one hand and on the other they have it so they want to get rid of it.

Um, yeah, like I said before, am I missing something?

  2. I do not believe this
