Mostly discusses how he invented and developed Magicjack. Also mentions his big score predicting the winners of six horseraces at Gulfstream Park in May, 2014. No mention of his involvement with WPS , nor women’s soccer was made in the article.

RIP Dan Borislow.

Comment on Lacrosse in the 2024 Olympics by agmonaco http://www.sportsmyriad.com/2014/07/lacrosse-in-the-2024-olympics/comment-page-1/#comment-161698 Thu, 10 Jul 2014 16:33:26 +0000 http://www.sportsmyriad.com/?p=5230#comment-161698 Yeah, that’s a pipe dream unfortunately. Lacrosse would be about tenth in line for entry into the program, and as you imply, the Games are already too bloated.

Instead of splitting the Games up into parts (a Beach Games here, an Extreme Games there, etc.) what I would like to see is a little more flexibility in the program. I don’t understand why the sports, once they are included, are so hard to dislodge. Just because we have taekwondo and modern pentathlon this year, why do we have to have it next year?

Why not have three or four “open” spots in the program? The local organizing committee (with the IOC’s input of course) could choose what sports go in those spots. Each Games would have a unique program, catered to the host country. That way more sports would get the exposure they desire – and lacrosse players might even be able to realize their Olympic dreams – but you’d keep a firm cap on the size of the event in any given year.
