    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

I know my cousin ran track and field, plus played football in college..we all chipped in...and have you ever tried to feed an athlete, its expensive as hell!! They participate in what they find fun, exciting, and what they are good at..muscle mass and structure doesn't play a part.

    If you think my explanation is BS, I invite you to come up with a better one.

    Did anyone see Usain Bolt in the 200m? That guy is not human!

    There is an American female hoops player playing for Russia. She's being called traitor by just about everyone. She tried out for the American team and couldn't get on, why shouldn't she play for Russia?

    A lot of the runners, swim team and so on, live in America and train in America and go to school in America but when it's time to compete they compete for their country.

    I think if a person trains in America (American coaches) and lives in America they should represent America but thats not the rules so the American girl playing for Russia is fine with me because I just don't see the difference.

    Damn right he's not. Please don't crush my hopes and dreams. God I loved to watch the Thorpedo swim though I did have to laugh at his face when Phelps won that last medal and he had to eat crow. I wanted to comfort him later though!

    I was so thrilled that little Shawn Johnson won a gold. That kid looks like a sweetie.

    Anyone else things its a bit odd that after Misty May wins the beach volleyball gold, she sprinkles some of her moms ashes in the sand? She did it in Athens, too.

    I don't know, maybe not everyone wants sand and your mom's creamated ashes between their toes.

    The sentiment is sweet, but eww.

    Ewwwww. I hope i haven't been to the beach where she sprinkled some of her mom. I didn't know about that.

    Usain Bolt is hot. I'd hit that. If I could catch it.
