10. Tug-of-War

What wouldn't be exciting about a bunch of guys trying to pull each other over a line or a hole in the ground?

While not the friendliest spectator "sport", the mess-ups could make for some entertaining, though frightening, moments.

8. Gliding

See #9.

7. Golf

Because the Golf Channel just isn't enough.

6. American Football

Hey, it worked for basketball, we have been dominating ever since. Well, at least Americans find it an honor to play basketball in the Olympics. Maybe we will get some good international talent too.

5. Ice Stock Sport

4. Skijoring

It's like water skiing, except on snow, being pulled by dogs, and having no tricks involved.

3. Speed Skiing

What could possibly go wrong?

2. Croquet

Because Ice Stock Sport is just too exciting.
