    I'd would like to thank the beach volleyball gods who decided that women should wear
    bikinis, while the men wear baggy shorts and tanktops. :tup:

    I have a sneaking suspicion that certain judges may be scoring US athletes more harshly than others. Anyone catch the mens 3m springboard synchronized diving? USA and Ukraine do the exact same dive, the US men are perfect -perfect!- until the entry where their legs didn't match up, then the Ukrainians -well, one goes a little sideways, their rotations don't match, and their legs don't line up on entry either, although they're closer than the US- and the Ukrainians got a better score and the silver! And don't even try to tell me that a near-flawless on the beam Shawn Johnson could score lower than a wobbly Chinese girl.

    Still, I'm enjoying the spectacle.

    Phelps is a machine. That's six medals so far. And he plans on getting at least eight.

    Cantwell got the silver on shot-put! Shame he didn't get the gold, but he'll get it in the next Olympics.

    While everyone else was watching shaved men swim together, last night, I was watching the womens Judo matches. Something about women pinning each other to the ground is just a lot more entertaining.

    Too bad they're wearing bath robes tool.

    Mix the swimming uniforms up with the judo ones, eh?

    No, volleyball uniforms.

    American Alicia Sacramone is amazingly developed for a gymnast. Can we see that run in slow motion again, please? :p

    Phelps got 8 medals...holy ****. I think it's a bit unfair that swimming has so many events though. They should increase number of events for other sports as well.

    Watching Phelps get the 8th medal was pretty cool. The Mens 100m dash for "world's fastest man" was amazing as well. The winner absolutely burned everyone, and was celebrating before he even crossed the line. If he stayed focused he could have done even better. It's like it wasn't even hard for him.

    Unfortunately I don't think the coming week will be as good. I haven't seen any events that look even remotely interesting to watch short of the closing ceremony.

    I'm not sure how BMX fits into the olympics but I hope it opens the door for bicycle polo (again) someday! :tup:
