Whether it involes American Idol or fallen idols (Michelle Kwan and Bode Miller) it appears the Olympics are getting less and less popular with the American public.In order to revive the Winter Games and to help NBC out of their rating nosedive THE WADE BLOGS devised the following plan that would grab a hold of the public consciousness here in the US as well as around the world.
We believe the 2014 XXII Winter Olympiad (the 2010 Games have already been awarded to Vancouver) should be hosted and held on the ice planet made famous in Star Wars Episode V, Hoth.
So we created HOTH2014.COM
Join our alliance in our bid to have the icy site of Episode V host the XXII Winter Olympics. A mascot has yet to be decided (we are partial to an intestine-trailing Tauntaun named "Gutsy" or a one-armed Wampa dubbed "Lefty") and the Hoth events still need to be finalized (please leave your ideas below) but one thing for certain is that the games will be out of this world.
So check out the Hoth Olympic Bid at HOTH2014.COM and support our efforts... please sign our petition which we plan to really send to the IOC, NBC, Darth Vader (c/o LucasFilms)... et. al
