  1. Ahhhh how nice of CAF and Roltel to stop by. I knew as soon as we pulled out the wine people would start flocking Baron raises a good point and I just want to add to that. The mens basketball team seems to be following that pattern - much to my surprise. The last 2 Olympics I wanted to hide my head with their conduct on and off the court. Kobe and company seem to be all over the place, watching other competitions, etc.
  2. Nobody will come into our hospitality room. We are not offering beer as Roltel did in the Australian room Lets break open some lovely Napa Valley and Sonoma wines and celebrate! Michael Phelps - he is goofy looking - he probably farts a lot with that frightening diet he has and is geeky. Damn he does not annoy me like Mark Spitz did. There is just something endearing about him. Dara Torres - I called my sister who has 40DD boobs and reminded her that she was the same age as Dara. She was not amused. So - what else?
  3. I love this! It is up there with moguls (or whatever it is called) and snowboarding in the WOG's. I do not like synchro diving/swimming, rhythmic gymnastics of the "new" sports (sorry Baron)
  4. I would probably make Bolt's haul the silver if he wins the 200m For someone that tall from a small country to do what he did, it could easily change the dynamics of short distance running. Gone could be short people always winning and tall people taking their place. Bronze I might put the demise of the Russians as well as the rise of the Chinese. That could change the next few days but it appears the last remnants of the old Soviet Sports System is upon us and the birth of a new Chinese one upon us. Michael Phelps - no question, like it or not, will always be the story of Bejing.
  5. My bad - your right. I only looked about partway down which is how the total medal count actually came out. Should have looked further. Anyway, both methods have their merits.
  6. Meh - I say the Aussies or GB 3-4. One way or another. Either way, I am happy.
  7. Give it time . . . give it time I still think Australia has something up it's sleeve this last week. NZ seems to be getting their groove down. Fantastic!
  8. This is awesome! Congrats! I told you in the second week that things would open up for NZ and Canada. Oz - I'm thinking 3-4th place now.
  9. I'm really trying not having sour grapes and being an ugly American here! And if someone says "Too Late" I WILL bitch slap you. And yes - she smiled once and is quite fetching. BTW - I remember her father. He was HOT in '88.
  10. Really? I think she has that sinister Soviet look about her. About the scoring - well, I always thought Bejing would be payback for the Paul Hamm debacle and the forced changing of scoring. Same as we will not see another Canadian Figure Skating Pairs Team win a gold for a long, long time. But I dunno - Liukin won the All-Around so I'll just leave it that the ladies match was interesting to say the least. 25 years from now, we should start getting admissions about the underaged Chinese gymnasts and all will be good. Shirley Babashoff must be laughing her ass off right now.
  11. I just watched the replay of Bolt and listened to the commentary by Ato Boldon. It is entirely possible the Bolt is one of those people who come along occasionally who have the height that is unusual for sprinters (he's really tall) that have longer strides than the shorter sprinters. I'm just going with that for the time being.
  12. Awesome! Britain is starting to kick some butt in these games! And yay for NZ!
  13. Pay him no mind - he is an equal opportunity offender.
  14. Yea, I think if Chicago gets '16 he'll probably take back his words.
  15. Well, apparently Michael does plan on going to London in '12. I think the only record he has left to break is Larisa Latynina's overall medal count.
  16. I honestly think New Zealand will pop out eventually in swimming. I don't know why . . .
  17. I disagree. There will be some Kiwi or Aussie that will pop up in the next several years that will put this to shame. It will happen.
  18. OMG!!!!!!!!!!!! I am speechless. I am in tears.
  19. Fine - if ANYONE is proved to be doping , strip their medal. I think I have been pretty clear as to how I feel about this issue in the past. Unfortunately, other countries from the past, who have admitted to doping, don't feel the same way. BTW - where exactly are you from Ruling Cszar? Your profile is rather sketchy. Please share your nationality?
  20. Dara got a silver. On behalf of people her/my age, thank you.
  21. Well, your analysis fits in from what my old trainer told me years ago when he told me to inhale 5000 caories per day when I was lifting and doing cardio.
  22. Boy your are dim. Provide me proof instead of speculation. As it is, you look pathetic with your speculation.
  23. Well, if this is an example of an obesity problem I want in on the gig!
  24. Yes I am. Again, I hope I am not disappointed. I would like to think that people who demand that they are tested for doping are clean but even from my own country, I have doubts. Too many lies the past few years.
