So NBC aired, or re-aired, the BMX (supercross?) finals last night. For those who didn't see it, Latvia and France won gold, and crashes occured early and often.
The big question on everyone's mind, including Chris Hoy's, is whether adding BMX was worth cutting the 500m and kilo time trials from track. That was controversial because it apparently makes it much less interesting to be a female sprinter, due to a lack of events. (And no Tammy Thomas comments allowed, folks.)
What is the opinion of the cafe on BMX afterwards? Is it a sport worthy of a medal ceremony? Or is it, like chess or ballroom dancing, best performed without laurels, ribbons, and Bob Costas?
Would you rather watch the kilo/half-kilo or BMX at the Olympics?
