Not a corruption of the venerable Games, mind you. Rather a graduation to the level of professional sports entertainment encompassing all the elements thereof: team franchises, televised Games-of-the-week, impact players, superstar salaries, merchandising and the rest.

I'm ready for it. America's ready for it. Give it to us.

       The Sean Triubhas would be particularly entertaining. Have a scone.

       PeterSealy — Reverence don't feed the bulldog, buddy. No, believe me, I wouldn't want to see the Games trivialized either. But I sure would like to see a bit of that great wash of pro-sports megacash make its way into the pockets of some hardscrabble gut-level competitors.

       [PeterSealy]: Highland Games are much more than just ceilidh.
angel, Jul 12 2001

       They're not really, other than being of Gaelic origin. Dancing is included in the Games, but not the community dancing featured in ceilidh.
