Watching the Olympics
I could be the only one here but I always find it interesting and somewhat amusing which disciplines get added to the Olympics every year (well, every 4 years, I know), especially now after visiting Ancient Olympia and learning about the original games. Rugby? BMX? Golf even? Maybe Formula 1 will be an Olympic event one day …
So in my mind you can’t really fault Chuck too much for stepping right into Julios trap. I think over the last ten years, Julio has found almost enough clever ways to keep Chuck out of “his” hangar or parts room for us to turn the collection into a whole separate book. 😉
Did you know that in the editions 1912-1948 there were competitions for architecture, literature, music, painting, and sculpture?
Myself would support including gliding.
But never, never, football (especially American football)!
You might have watched the opening ceremony, the shots from the helicopters resembled much like an air race. Even a Red Bull airshow of Chuck (Aaron!!) has smoother transitions!
There could a strip episode in this?
Captan Dunsel, they have football in the Olympics. or as Americans know it, Soccer.
I watched Olympics. Ok, maybe not these in Rio, but in Radom – but the timing was the same.
12th FAI World Advanced Aerobatic Championships has just ended 🙂
JP Kalishek, you’re right. I don’t know how I could’ve forgotten it!
But, I still hold that American football doesn’t belong at the Olympics — and yes, I am an American.
In the olympic games 1936 gliding was a demonstration sport. If I remember right, all had to fly same type plane, called Olympia.
