View Full Version : Anyone Care About The Olympics?

I certainly do. I'll probably end up watching whatever I can find...

Just discuss anything Olympics here I guess, there is a lot. Favorite event? What country are you rooting for? Will Mao Zedong rise from his tomb and show no Communist mercy?

Personally, can't wait for the swimming.... especially Michael Phelps

Aaanyways, it had quite a flashy opening, I noticed. Lots of lights. The Chinese made the opening look like a poor German rave/disco :p

The Opening Ceremonies were really beautiful...Though I thought they, like, worshiped Mao over there, they didn't even give the man a nod...

Also, the United States outfits for the parade of nations are just dreadful. My god, the team isn't going boating, Ralph Lauren = Fail.

Lol @ George Bush giving the "cause I got to" applause to the Iraqi team. Funny how they looked at him when it was their turn to show.

Also, this looks cool with HDTV on it. So sharp.

You kidding me? Those blazers were so classy.

I like that driver's cap, too.

Anyway, I'm really excited it's in Beijing and more specifically, Asia.

Oriental representation in Occidental media has been far too low and annoyingly stereotypical.

I just watched several hours of online streaming through the NBC website. I've never seen the Olympics like this, and it's pretty awesome. The past few Olympics had been impossible to watch what you want to watch, because it was all going on at the same time and on different channels. Now with the online streaming it lets you jump to what you want and watch it in high quality live. It's great.

I know I sound like a commercial, but I seriously want more of this in the future. I hear it's the most advanced HD and online streaming setup ever put together. I just jumped between cycling, badminton, boating, rowing, judo, weightlifting, shooting, and fencing, all streaming live in just this one night. It makes me feel all futurey. It also makes me wonder why some of you are not interested in the Olympics. There's a lot going on at once and a lot at stake (if you're into that whole honor thing). It almost makes me sad that I'm going to California instead of staying home and watching the Olympics all week.

Well, not really, but still.

The opening ceremony was brilliant. The amount of training it took to get everyone so synchronized really showed. Simply awesome. I don't know how the hell we (London) are going to top that in 2012.

I love watching the Olympics. I'll be glued to the TV for 2 weeks. My favourites to watch are diving and athletics.

its taken how many decades and redesigns of special suits that help you move through the water faster, not to mention redesigning of pools that have gutters to allow the water to break when you come to the edge to finally beat Spitz's records?

MrWally
08-13-2008, 02:18 PM
I'm not so sure Dath. Considering how amazing Phelps is doing (and how he's continually beating every world record... by a pretty decent amount, too), I'd say he's a true athlete.

Gymnastics were pretty sad last night. I felt so bad for the girl who fell on both the beam and the floor exercise. Just the feeling of knowing that you did it thousands of times flawlessly and then making a little mistake when it really mattered... I can't imagine that.

At least she has her individual events to make up for it.

And speaking of gymnastics, anyone know what's up with the Chinese girls team? Half their members are only 14 or 15 years old and legally not allowed to be in the Olympics.... what's up with it?

Alicia Sacremone? Yeah, I don't get why Marta didn't use a single alternate when half the team had an injury... Or why Sacremone got put on floor exersize when she'd did the same thing at prelims...

And the Chinese thing is so true. I learned my parents can speak Engrish when my dad said "I eight year old. I compete in Orympics." in a chinese voice. It was hilarious, yet sad.

Anyways, have you guys seen any video of that weightlifter? His elbow literally snapped in two. I will never lift in my life after seeing that.

In other news, no American won in the men's individual all around finals, but Jhor came in 9th and my bb Sasha came in 12th, which is great CAUSE HE WAS AN ALTERNATE! I recorded all his routines for future awesome refrence.

Anywho, last night, the men did such an okay job. Everyone was falling all over the place. I can't wait for the youtube montage of all the falls in this all around compitition.... The one where the japanese guy fell off the rings was shocking at first, but then it was hilarious.

For it is written in the Pyramid Texts:


The sky is overcast,
The stars are darkened,
The celestial expanses quiver,
The bones of the earth-gods tremble,
The planets are stilled,
For they have seen Dath Maximus appearing in power
As a god who lives on his fathers
And feeds on his mothers;
The Dath is a master of wisdom
