Our women's fencing team swept the field earning all three medals...how often does one country sweep a specific event?

We just lost to Latvia in Men's Beach Volley Ball? Latvia? Do they even have beaches?

I saw that...I don't think they do unless they have a few good sized lakes.

Their training regiment was smart though. Those two guys would play vs a team of 6...and it apparently paid off.

Anyone think Phelps goes 8 for 8 getting golds?

Americans ... better at fencing than volleyball since 8/8 of 08. What's next, we lose to China in basketball and sweep the badminton medals? :doh:

If his preliminary from earlier today is any indication, then I think he has about as good a chance as we'll likely see in my lifetime. But that's one hell of a brutal schedule he has to get there.

I was watching a little rowing and thy reminded me of one of my favorite words: repercharge. I don't know why, but I just like to say it, repercharge, repercharge, repercharge.

Looks like we are a traveling M.A.S.H. unit with our gymnastic teams. That would go a long way towards China beating us in overall golds and total medals.

Phelps is amazing, but Darra Torres is truly inspiring. If she is clean (and she is extra tested by her own volition), it is incredible that she can out swim girls 1/2 her age.

I'm thinking that if you want to be a host city then you need to make sure you have the CORRECT rendition of each countries national anthem. During the metal ceremony for Phelps they manged to mangle ours pretty damn good.

And how convenient was that that it was cut off at the end before "the land of the free and home of the brave" It will be interesting to see if that "mistake" happens again.

freaking communists.

Did the shuttlec0ck get lodged in anyones leg? Poor Yang and Loa,


On a side not, is there anything more pathetic than watching a promo for Notre Dame Football on NBC?

Where is the curling? Shouldn't there be curling in the summer games as well?
