    I know! They make it easy to cheer for everyone! That kid from GBR seems to be fantastic for 14 or 15.

    I'm finding the coverage quite good actually. I'm splitting between CBC and CBConline and NBC and NBConline. Between all of them, i'm pretty well covered . Last night i watched men's team gymnatics final on tv, and had it streaming on my laptop at the same time .

    I am finding our commentators an embarrassment. Every day I have to hear ad nauseum that if you do a medal tally based on number earned per head of population then we are first.

    Even worse the studio audience cheers loudly at this and there are scenes of mass hysteria.

    Please just enjoy the great performances and the medals that have been won.

    I keep hoping that New Zealand will win a gold in something so I do not have to endure the per head of population medal count.

    To me being in the top 10 for the medal tally is something great. It just cheapens all countries great efforts to do it on a per population basis.

    I wanted to puke too. I took this picture of his chimp-face instead. Note the lovely Mao portrait in the background by his head. Can you tell from the confused look on his face that they were asking him about politics?

    Today's Rant:

    Professional Sportsmen/women have no place at the Olympics. It always used to be an amateur competition and the better for it. Tennis already has more than enough world class competitions, ditto soccer. I know it's all about TV rights and commercialism these days so they need the "big names" to draw viewers but it's a shame that genuine amateurs get muscled (literally) by the pros.

    I heard today that NBC paid something like 9 BILLION dollars for the TV rights. Seems a high number to me but even if it's less what the hell does the IOC spend all this money on?? That's just one TV netword. I know the IOC has a reputation for being the most pampered, secretive, wealthiest, corrupt bunch of crooks on the planet but seriously, where does all this money go?

    I cant even watch the olympics, A*O is right, they are drooling over the aussie competitors and ignoring the fact that if someone else wins gold and australia doesnt, its because they are better then us.
    Thank god for SBS

    Phelps may be a swimming god, but he acted like a jackash after winning that relay- he actually brayed. And why did he strip off his shirt and peel it down to his privates? Yuk.

    He isn't a jackass, he was excited.. I would think he was an asshole if he didn't express any kind of emotion at all!! I think at times they wear less than that when they swim..
