My met recent visit to ancient Greece was a re-reading of the Theseus books, The King Must Die and The Bull from the Sea. Don't you wish the Olympics would include Bull Dancing as a sport? Hmm, sports with horses are classed as Equestrian. I wonder how sports with bovines would be classed. I know they already have that Pamplona deal, but that's neither sport nor art, and while bullfighting might possibly be considered an art, it's not exactly sporting. Doing gymnastic leaps over bull's horns, though, would be awesome. Maybe they could just add it to the regular gymnastics events. After all, they do already have the Pommel Horse.

If they can have rhythmic gymnastics, why not bovine gymnastics? Ribbons, horns, what's the diff? :)

No difference . . . especially for those of us long past the age of trying something that, uh, stupid.

They could tie the long ribbons to the horns, and have both at once.

Adding: I'd pay extra money to watch the Olympic sport of feeding Fred Phelps to the lions....
