They can cancel building the softball and baseball fields. The two sports are off the Olympic menu from now on.

Maybe they can be adjusted for cricket which is bigger in Asia.
I really like the other stadium designs besides the aquatic center and Olympic Stadium which I dont like.
I like the velodrome and badmiton stadiums the most.

I CAN'T WAIT FOR BEIJING 2008!!!!!

As for the mascots................................





Sydney 2000, Athens 2004, Torino 2006, and Beijing 2008 all had/will have terrible mascots.lol.
In actuality, softball and baseball are included in the 2008 Beijing olympics. This will be the last time they will be played as an olympic sport as they will not be part of the 2012 London olympic games.

In London they should get cricket and rugby in.
They tried adding Rugby Sevens to the programme for 2012 (along with karate, squash, rollerblading(!) and something else), but the IOC voted against any new sports :(

If I hate one thing, it's people quoting posts with lots of pictures in them (and then, to top it all off, adding a message made up of one smilie). :rant:

Are they really off from now on, or just off from the London games? I'd imagine it would be back on if you have the games anywhere in the Americas or eastern Asia.
