Default Olympics

Has anybody been watching the Olympics. The US is really doing a great job even if we are having to compete against 12 year old Chinese girls. I read a cool article the other day that broke the medals down from judged events to timed events and the Chinese are really winning a lot of the acrobatic judged events but the US is winning all the points, strength and endurance events thanks partly to Michael Phelps. I can't run as fast as he swims. Go USA!
This just became my new favorite smiley.

I am Canadian and have been watching the Olympics. The States is doing pretty good compared to us! We're just starting to get a few metals now log ass l! China is kicking ass, but they do have a ton more atheletes entered compared to alot of contries that are competing. Overall the Chinese are doing a great job being the host.

All the countries have been doing great. I really like the heart felt stories that go along with some of the athletes and countries.

Even if the Chinese they are underage I think it is an accomplishment to win a gold medal or any medal at that age. If it does turn out to be true I'd hate to be the one to strip a 12 year old of their medal.

I have really gotten into these Olympics. I have even started to Tivo as many as I can. Luckily I have fast forward or I would still have a week left after the Olympics are over.

I think they need to make marching band a sport. They have done tests that show a members heartrate jumps to 180 beats per minute and lasts for roughly 10 minutes depending on the length of the show. It isn't just when you start moving but starts when they get called to attention and their adrenaline builds up. Not to mention some of the drums and tuba weigh in excess of 50 pounds and all of the movement that is involved. Of course the Chinese would win since it would be a judged event. This is the same heart rate as a sprinter and about 9 minutes longer.

Does that mean you don't have to exercise?
