I saw Phelps beat Cavic. What an awesome, but nerve-wracking race that was. -phew- It really looked like he was gonna lose!  
 
Crazy. :D

Quote from: "kyuusei"
So Canada finally gets a medal after seven days. No wait, make that three. Bwuh? Two in women's wrestling (of all things - one gold, too) and one in men's doubles rowing.

Huh. That's more like it...

I guess we have a bunch of chances in rowing... but they said that in Athens and look where that got us =P


...I don't think I've even seen a Canadian yet. :P

EDIT:  Oh wait, I have:  those horrible synchronized divers. :P

I'm actually genuinely bothered by the whole "let's focus on Canadians" thing that CBC does. I don't expect fair and balanced focus from any station in the Olympics, but I personally prefer to cheer on the athletes giving it their best. I don't care how many gold medals Canada wins -- it's cool if they do win at certain things, but it isn't the first thing on my mind. I want to see how awesome these athletes are doing, not which country has more medals.

I think that is how it is everywhere.  US Olympic Coverage has focused on the US Swim Team and Gymnastics Team.  You'd have to watch at some outrageous hours, or during certain sport off times to catch anything else, otherwise it's live coverage of re runs of those sports.  And any other sport they show, it's either if a US Team is playing or a Chinese Team is playing since for some reason this Olympics is about China vs. US here.

Man, it's cool that those three Americans swept the medals in the hurdles last night and all, but why the fuck was the winner wearing sunglasses in the middle of the night?  That shit went out in the 80s, son.
