In the Olympic spirit, a suggestion from far off left field.
I was wondering if anyone other than myself would be interested in
seeing a form of boxing fought on a sheet of ice while standing and
moving around on skates be included in the Winter Olympic Games. I feel
the winter games is badly in need of a pugilistic sport of some kind,
and this might just give the enforcers around the NHL and any boxer
willing to learn to skate a chance to showcase their skills in the
Olympics. Personally, I think boxing has about as much to do with
skating as firing a rifle has to do with cross-country skiing.
Just think of it this way:
skating + ballet = figure skating
skating + ballroom dancing = ice dancing
So how about SKATING + BOXING?
