Only sport that has a shot of keeping Wrestling out of the Olympics is the Baseball/Softball bid, and even that is a long shot. I still can't believe this happened, absolutely fucking stupid.

Logistically, Wrestling makes the most sense and it's an inaugural sport. So why are we getting rid of it?

Dumb move, I think it will stay, somehow. Get rid of baseball, not an Olympic sport period.

Pssh... get rid of basketball! Who wants to watch a bunch of diva's play a pick up game? Not me. I wasn't even that hyped about the dream team. I think I've watched one Olympic basketball game ever.

Basketball makes the Olympics WAYYYYYYY more money than wrestling, it's not even close. Gymnastics, swimming, track and field and basketball are the headliners for the summer games.
