I think this would be a great thing to not do.

Narcolympics

Sleepy sports

Sleepy people the world around often find they cannot enjoy sporting activities due to sudden impulses to lie down. Sleepy sports is just the thing for the tired and even lazy.

Bed skiing not only provides warmth, but it matters little if you doze off halfway down the slope.

Team sports like soccer or cricket must have pillows dotted about the field in case a rest is in order.

High jump and pole vault are favourites, where you will find not only athletes - but also umpires curled up on the mattress dozing in the sun.

       I thought this was drug inspired - amphetamine/steroid cocktail 100m sprint, could get some interesting world records.

       It's a shame - - I thought this would have events like longest snooze, most drool, loudest snore . . . I'd take gold in almost every event. Anyway, [~C] steamin bun for you.

       Why not, we have sleepwalking; why not sleepluging or sleepdiving?

       Contracts, you'd be under pressure from yours truly... I went to bed at midnight last night, and I only woke up five minutes ago, the time being 16:45.   

       Phun, I can just imagine sleep walkers with their out stretched arms, making it to the end of a diving board... +

       Trying to think how sleepy cricket would differ... No running allowed? Or maybe that's already how it is?

       [spiritualized], I'm so jealous of your 16 hr+ sleepathon!   

       Hooray for the sleepy people!

       There could be a seperate event in Asian Sytle Cooking, where the best sleep woker takes all.

       Slighly more perilous a sport than the Monty Python Incontinence Olympics.

       Archery and riflery contests could prove to be disastrous, surely. Is riflery a word?

       (pedant: should this be sport:olympics).

       Wrestlers asleep in each others arms...
robinism, Jan 11 2005
  

       The English cricket team would be good at this.

       Bob sleigh. Four big burly men sleeping together. Shame the Winter Narcolympics are unlikely to be held in San Francisco.
