#NBCFail isn't the only Olympic hashtag flying around Twitter. This morning, tweeters have been suggesting their own #RejectedOlympicEvents.

Of course the Olympics, have a long history of weird events, (live pigeon shooting? solo synchronized swimming?) that have now been cancelled.

Or maybe the IOC would consider adding some of these weird sports to the next Olympics. We'd pay good money to watch horse vaulting.
