Olympics in London

I half expected to read that the IOC had decided to go with Paris after all. Maybe they're just waiting for the dust to settle.

Anyway, before yesterday's bombings, I had intended to post that I hope I can go to the 2012 Olympics in London. Baseball was one of the sports I had hoped to get to see (figuring demand would be minimal). Now it turns out that baseball and softball have been dropped.

This is a total joke. Okay, clearly baseball's not soccer or basketball, but it's got a far bigger global following than most of the Olympic sports. Olympic Handball, archery, even swimming or gymnastics (among others) are much smaller sports. I really can't understand this decision.
