    No you still have everybody trying to beat the Americans, as well as all the little mni African battles, the eastern europeans trying to get one up on each other and then the arabs v Israel....

    All done with a smile

    Apparently the US Olympic committee have warned all athletes to tone down celebrations and to refrain from over use of the US flag...

    Yeah the footballs the only thing in the games I'd bother to watch. Serbia v Argentina on eurosport today should be good hopefully.

    I dont really like all the running and swimming its a bit drab. Same goes for the bike races and rowing. I suppose we can all look at the athletes' eyes and play "spot the druggie" but thats not the point of it all. Is there tennis at the Olympics ? If there is then it might be worth watching the Russians but apart from that its far behind the World Cup and even European Championships in terms of interest at a sporting event for me.

    woke up this morning and watched a bit of the swimming. ian thorpe is a jerk
    Whatever it was I am sure it was better than my plan to get out of this by pretending to be mad. I mean, who would have noticed another madman around here?
