Default Your best Olympic event (and worst)?

If you were going to take part in the Summer 2008 Olympics WITH your MS, what would be your best events? Your worst?

I'd rock kayaking (flatwater), table tennis, swimming, and sailing. I might be okay at stuff like archery. Oh wait, nevermind, eyesight not that good. Funny, when I asked my wife Laura, she said, "Too bad they don't offer a medal in wife harassment, because that would be your forte." Oh, burn.

I'd suck at anything with jumping, balance, and running. Hurdles? Suck huge. Balance beam? That would be an epic level of suckiness, but I'm a guy so I can't compete in that event. Thank goodness!

Talking My best Olympic event:(tongue in cheek)

Dave,
If I were to participate in the Olympics it would be as a judge. I may not be able to balance on a beam...but I can deduct points when THEY wobble!

Best...flat water kayaking. Worst...Tae Kwon Do. Used to do it, but when you can't move your legs like you expect them to, doesn't work out so well. I would be covered in bruises.
