Breaking News - Golf & Rugby Closer To Becoming Olympic Sports



As I sit here trying to figure out what to write and watch Caddyshack on the Golf Channel I was interrupted by this bit of breaking news.

For the 2016 Olympic Games - golf and rugby will be recommended as sports to include. The AP has this fresh press release about the two sports. In October, we will learn whether these will actually make it in.

Will we actually see golf and rugby become Olympic sports? Stay tuned!

Wow! It only took them 105 years since the last time they played golf in the Olympics!

I was originally against golf in the Olympics, but I think Tiger really, really wants a gold medal and I love when he and other Americans represent our country.

I have been wanting rugby in the Olympics for about 10 years now. I always had a dream of being on the US Olympic rugby team. But I'll settle for just watching!

Yeah, I once had Olympic dreams of my own. When I was a child I really wanted to be a gymnast...then I started growing...and growing...at 5'10" I'm not the best for that sport!
