    Five events become four, as running and shooting are combined into one event ...

    It'd be cool to see a "Hogan's Alley" section, where the targets pop up and you may end up shooting a kid.

    Sirs, Madames,

    Performance art, meta-fiction, symphonic minimalism, literary deconstruction, dadaism.

    Post-modern pentathlon.

    Best/Weirdest part of the Modern pent. They are just given random horses and so that portion of the event is a total crapshoot depending on whether you get a good horse or not. This year it was hilarious to watch as numerous riders got thrown off by their horses.

    That made me laugh, really hard. It only is if you have to jump a fence at some point.

    I believe it is the national sport of Turkey . . . or one of those countires of there. I'm pretty sure turkey though. I wonder how they feel about the contraction, if they view it as an introdution of the dh?
