Which sports should be added to the Olympic Games???

Darts would be a great addition. Darts has a rich history involving some of the most elite athletes you'll ever see. These athletes have the physical & mental attributes necessary to deliver the dart to an extremely small target, all the while battling the effects from the copious amounts of beer they consume during the match. Clearly Darts deserves consideration from the IOC as an addition to either winter or summer Olympics.

Football is the most popular sport on the planet.

Can't we get past the America hate and recognize that on the Olympic stage?

Is that true? I would believe football-soccer, but based on your location I'm guessing you mean football-football. No way north american football gets in. Might as well just add Nascar at the same time if we're adding football.

I think the rest of the planet would disagree. Besides I don't think even one of the players in NFL could pass even a cursory drug test.

Olympic Snow Ball Fight
I like riding down toboggan hills so I'd be so down to try and ride a boarder cross course. Then we could apply it to the downhill, and the GS , maybe even the mogals and freestyle courses.

Winter: Flatland sledding. For those of us who grew up on the plains. Equipment: tennis shoes, jersey gloves, jeans, sweatshirt, radio flyer sled. Hold the sled in front of you, sprint, launch and flop onto the sled with your belly, slide a few yards. Repeat until the sled breaks or your toes are frozen.
