Baltimore Grand Prix: b suggests more sporting events for Charm City

The Baltimore Grand Prix races into town Labor Day weekend, and we’re already planning our city’s sporting future. We’re curious: What’s the next sporting event that should randomly come to Baltimore?

The Summer Redneck Games. Yes, these actually exist. And yes, toilet seats are involved. — Luke Broadwater, managing editor, b

Solo synchronized swimming championships. It’s a real sport, in that it was an Olympic event. If that’s enough to make it count. — Anne Tallent, editor, b

The FIFA World Cup would generate so much dough, the city’s pot-holed streets could be paved in platinum. I’ll see if the Du Burns Arena is free for 2022. — Wesley Case, reporter, b

Biathlon. I always enjoy a perfect mix of cross-country skiing and rifle shooting. It’s like the peanut butter and jelly of sports. — Jordan Bartel, assistant editor, b

Sports, schmorts. (Editor’s note: “Schmorts”? Really?) — Molly McLaughlin, intern, b

Final Four men’s basketball tournament. There will be plenty of room for fans of the teams playing since Maryland has a snowball’s chance in hell of even making the big dance. — John-John Williams IV, reporter, The Baltimore Sun

Let’s bring the Running of the Bulls to Baltimore! AND we already have the Grand Prix fences built along the roads so we’re ready!— Mick Lee, Z104.3

Chariot racing. Bring back the glory days of the Roman Empire, I say. — Colleen Dorsey, intern, b
