    Don't know if you guys saw this, but US played Colombia, and a Colombian player (Lady Andrade) appeared to run up behind US player Abby Wambach and sucker punch her in the eye. Andrade claims it was just an unfortunate collision. The refs did not see it and did not issue a call. Wambach has a black eye, and there hasn't been a review yet of the clip by Olympic officials.

    Wow, that is bad. You can lip read and see that the US player is saying several times that she got punched in the eye as soon as it happened.

    Poor woman. The Columbians looked like they wanted to play dirty throughout that whole clip!

    ETA: Cheered like a loon when the women rode through Kingston-Upon-Thames. Bear in mind I'm at home, alone Also, past the bridge that road they go down is the road I walk to work every morning!

    That is just horrible. I hope there is some sort of review by officials. Nasty sportsmanship.

    Awesome finish in the women's cycling. Right down to the wire. I won't say any more than that here....

    I just saw some clips of womens cycling and it looked like they had about 8 wrecks? I had the sound off so as not to wake the hubs, so could be they were showing the same wrecks more than once...

    We should get a few in the Velodrome, hopefully. And the rowing/sailing maybe.

    The end of the road race was good, Mohandas!

    Damn. What would the consequences likely be for those dirty moves in the US/Columbia soccer game?

    There were a lot of wrecks, but the announcers were expecting them. They said that the light rain had brought a lot of oil to the road's surface. Particularly on painted areas.

    There was a pretty wild clip of about two or three women wiping out, and then another bicyclist literally rode right over one of the women lying on the ground. The woman on the ground got right up, adjusted her bike and pedaled off. I told my son, "That's the kind of woman I want you to marry."
