Phelps wins Heat 1.
Phelps wins Heat 1.
The only time people watch sports they never watch or care about, the Olympics. I watched a women's volley ball match....why?
Notice how we never see an Olympics from the Middle East?
Totally off topic.
Saw some high school football challenge type thing on TV. A white kid named...hmmm..Mitchell ran a 4.39 40...a linebacker. None of the running backs/receivers broke a 4.42.

Pulling for Phelps to whiff completely. I think he's only there for two reasons: sponsors and Mom. He had been dogging his training to the point where his coach was kicking him out of the pool, and Lochte called him out on it and kicked his ass in a major way.
Sweep the leg, Johnny...
Phelps will be lucky to come out of the games with a medal.
can you choose one?
anyone watching women's vollyball: U.S. vs Brazil?
It is one of the most annoying things I've ever watched. First off, I already hate Brazil and all the mutt race, mud-hut dwelling people who live there. They're only good at so many sports because they have nothing else to do but practice and try to survive. Now I'm watching them play volleyball and every fucking point they score they have to scream like the savages that they are and jump around like 13 yr old girls who just learned how to play the game, EVERY TIME! The U.S. currently has 2 sets to 1 on them but who knows what could happen with that child like enthusiasm boosting them.
Kinda sad to see Weiber crying...Guess that's how stacked the U.S. Women's Gymnastics team is--you can't crack the top team even when you're defending world champ.
Watched Water Polo for the first time in an Olympics and that looked fun.
I don't think Phelps really gives a damn about these olympics--he's been doing this since, what? Sydney in 2000 and dominated in Beijing to the tune of 8 gold bedals. That's a number greater than most countries have in their existences. Dude should've stayed blowing hella smoke and eating his avocado-laden Subway sandwiches. He did what he was expected to do and exceeded it to a degree.
Phelps looks bad but it was lochte that blew it on the mens relay
Code:Mookie2001: they say ramonce taylor makes reggie bush look like rasho
I wanna know where tha gold at? Stooooooops!
The Greatest Moment In The History Of The World:
Why is it nothing going on right now excites me?
Lochte disappoints again. So much for the cocky attitude coming in
My boo Missy Franklin gettin it done. Fun fact, we're both born on May 10, except 6 yrs apart
How 'bout that men's gymnastic team? Comparing them to the 1984 gold-medal winning team before the Games, they were more like the Floppin' Five today.

america fucking sucks this year...
atleast they arent as bad as the aussies. watching the broadcast here is hilarious!
Barring injuries, this is what we see...
Oly 100m Final
They are tied with China for most medals and have 4 less gold medals so far.
Did they suck the last Olympics too? China had like 20 more golds than the USA when the Olympics ended.
Doesn't it bother you that everyone sees you as a moronic clown?
Here's the new deal, I will hold up my end of the deal as long as you stop bugging me. You are a bore..ok? Bug me one more time and I start posting threads again, got it?
As a matter of fact let's make that the norm. Leave me alone and there will be no threads. Bug me and here they come. That's how much you bore me. You are by far the worst poster on this board. Too stupid to waste time on.

^ shut the fuck up
Tell me an Olympic story Avante, please.
No problem, I got a ton of them.
In 1924 Harold Abrahams was ...The Worlds Fastest Human....he was the Oly 100m champ (Chariots of Fire). When it came time to run the 4x1 the Brits thought they'd get cute and stick their Oly champ on the leadoff leg, they wanted the lead.
Francis Hussey was still at a New York HS when he made the USA Oly team, he would run the leadoff leg on our 4x1 relay.
Yep, you guessed it, young Hussey totally destroyed the Oly Champ giving the USA a two meter advantage, one they would never lose. The USA won in WR time.
Getting back to Abrahams, he never ran the Courtyard at Trinity College in Oxford, that was 400hurdler Lord Burgley. Movies...
Copy, Paste, change words here and there...rinse and repeat.
The Complete Book of the Olympic Games by David Wallechinsky. A must read for anyone into the Olympics.
Mine only goes up to 1980.
Then there is actuality, you're no historian.
