Time to get an application in for the next Olympics there. Would be great for MTB, aquatic sports, surfing etc. Unfortunately the athletics will be C-shaped!

At least the thief was environmentally conscious and used recyclable bag rather than plastic.

In short, when the charges support, you must deport.

Why do people make silly rhymes like this ... Was Dr. Seuss on the reading list at your law school?

So they have more power to remove sports but not to add them? Won't there eventually be zero sports left?

Feel good story but dangerous precedent. If all sports events are negotiated like this, then eventually lawyers and negotiators will get involved, followed by lawsuits amongst sponsors and stakeholders, not to mention Vegas odds makers.

Good idea to get rid of softball. Also should reduce number of swimming and gymnastic medals and add sports with wide global popularity such as squash and caber toss

Author surprisingly got the five basic tastes wrong. They should be salty, sour, bitter, sweet and spicy....umami is just a PC term for food additive MSG, to throw off all the MSG critics...

Mr KiplingToday 03:07 pm JST

After all he had done for Japanese football, they owed him his place on the squad."*

Nobody is owed a place on any national squad and have to earn it. His performance numbers playing in European leagues alone, were very revealing. 12 games in Croatia, 0 goals. 21 games in Italy, 1 goal. That is 1 goal in 33 games against European style defenses. That is simply not good enough. Japan was in a tough physical group with Jamaica, Argentina and Croatia and needed physically stronger forwards. Very different from playing Macau, Maldives, or other footballing minnows. Will have to go with the Manager's final selection based on performance potential, rather than your second guessing it for compassionate reasons.

It was a disgrace that he was omitted from the 1998 World Cup squad."

Silly comment. He was already 31 by the time the world cup came around. His qualifying goal totals were also inflated with 10 goals against the likes of Macau and Nepal, hardly world cup quality sides. Very rare for an older striker to be able to compete at the WC level , although there are exceptions such as Roger Milla of Cameroon.
