Maybe once NASCAR is in the Olympics.
Really? This is news? This sounds like something from the onion... Seriously, no it should not be in the Olympics..
None, Olympics should be only based on skills performed by a person in the real world, not in a virtual world.

Why not go old school and add board games like axis and allies/Battleship/stratego etc. to the Olympics or hey let's get crazy and have Dungeons and Dragons added to the Olympics.

Silly idea
