Hoth bid for Winter Olympics 2014

You can’t get away from sport at the moment. No sooner have the recent Winter Olympics ended than the Commonwealth Games begins. And then the 2006 FIFA World Cup will start. Sometime. This year. Probably.

It looks like Hoth — most famous for being featured in Star Wars, Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back is trying to get in on the action with its online bid to host the Winter Olympics XXII in 2014. New events on Hoth may include:

  • Two-man snowspeeder race
  • Bi-hoth-lon (a taxing Taunton race followed by shooting)
  • Skeleton (avoiding dismemberment by a Wampa)

And good luck to them. They certainly have the climate.
