I think that ESPN is definitly running out of programming to fill their schedule. Today I saw a 501 Darts competition, last week I saw the World Dominoes Championships. Then a few weeks before that, was the word championships of Scrabble. Then, I was flipping through the channels, and saw the World Rock-Paper-Scissors champioships on A&E. I can't believe that they air some of this stuff. What's next, a World Series of Solitaire, NCAA Beer Pong Championships. ESPN had a Madden 06 tournament, how about the U.S. Golden Tee Champioships?

One thing that I think would be cool though is a "Barlympics". All events would be games either found in a bar, or can be played while drinking. All compeditors muswill be required to drink while competing. Events would be things like:

Pool (Single and team)
Bowling (Regular and Candle Pin/Single and team)
Darts (Cricket, and 501)
Golden Tee
Beer Pong (One and two man events)
Mechanical Bull Riding
Butt Darts: For those of you who don't know, it's a game where you clinch a quarter between your butt cheaks, then walk accross the room, and drop the quarter into a shot glass on the floor.
Foose Ball (One and two man events)
Horse Shoes (One and two man events)
Washers: Similar to horse shoes, but instead you throw 2.5" washers into a three inch diameter pvc pipe. Here's a link.
Shuffleboard (One and two man events)
