Ways to make sport more interesting

Ways to make sport more interesting – what would you do?

I’ve been thinking about ways to inject some new life into sports,  here’s what I’ve got so far:

1 – Football – Give each footballer a violin, insist it’s played at all times whilst on the pitch. Under 16’s have kazoos instead.

2 – F1 Racing – Two-thirds into the race, take away the cars, make them run round.

3 – Golf – Re-locate the holes, but don’t tell the golfers where they are – they still have to continue putting regardless.

4 – Darts – Create a new rule which states it can only be played in zero gravity.

5 – Boxing – Put squeakers in the gloves.

6 – Wrestling – Replace the ring with a bouncy castle.

7 – Football – Mount catapults on each corner,  to replace corner kicks.

8 – F1 Racing – Replace the cars with shopping trolleys. Wobbly shopping trolleys.

9 – Athletic running – Give each runner a Nerf gun or water pistol, to be used against fellow runners.

10 – Hunting – Take away the horses, replace their guns with water pistols and cover each hunter in gravy. Now let’s see how much fun they have in the woodland….

11 – Hockey/rugby/football – Replace the ‘sin bin’ with a lion cage.

12 – Football again – Above the goal, have a platform on top of which stands a giant Nerf/tennis ball cannon, a la Gladiators.

13 – Snooker – Have Sid Waddell provide commentary, audible to the players.

14 – Cricket – ……erm……lost cause? Give them a pack of cards instead. Poker is easier to understand.

Could this help to make football more interesting? Imagine seeing this above the goal posts....

  1. I stumbled upon your blog while searching “Faith No More influences” and have been poking around the past few minutes enjoying what I’ve read. When I actually laughed out loud at #2 above, I knew I had to subscribe, and the thought of Putt-and-Seek had me in stitches! It’s too bad that after seeing “reality” shows garner huge ratings from crazy stunt challenges like these I realize that the idea is far more entertaining than the actual reality would be. The true entertainment would come from playing a version of these games with friends. For instance, I used to play full contact badminton during gym class in high school. It was a brutally fun way to start the day, but I don’t think it would be as much fun watching it televised and dramatized. Hilarious list, though. Thanks for the laughs!
