So I noticed there wasn't a thread about sports yet so HERE IT IS.

Talk about any sports-related items in here, professional or not.

-------------------------------------------------

SO THE OLYMPICS ARE PRETTY GOOD SO FAR. :>

I'm a huge Olympic fiend.
Screw context or politics. For 2 weeks, I like to take in the spectacle.
Thus far, it hasn't been disappointing in the least.

The opening ceremonies were incredible.
By far my favorite part was at the beginning, when the grid of 2008 Fou drummers with light up drums created a make-shift LCD screen to countdown the opening...


Also, the oufits and choreography were something you will only get from Asia...


The torch lighting was dope.
There was this screen that circumnavigated the top of the Bird's Nest arena, that they used to project movies and pictures and stuff during the ceremony. They had a past Chinese gold medalist suspended several hundred feet in the air and had him run in slow motion all the way around it. As he ran, the screen had this scroll unfurling where he ran, showing movies of the torch relay around the world.
Absolutely stunning.


As for the events, Michael Phelps wasn't even trying and he beat the Olympic record during the 400M IN (I think) heats. That dude is a machine.
Also, the Fencing/Saber Gold medalist is from Atlanta, so the local news here has been a buzz with interviews and such.

Honestly, I was expecting something about Brett Favre in the first couple posts. Good to see there is none!

I've been watching a bit of the Olympics so far as well and it's been pretty good. I still enjoy the Winter Olympics more though. >_> 2010 can't come fast enough!

barring these 2 posts, let's try to keep that out of this topic until at least about page 4.

i unfortunately missed the opening ceremonies and haven't seen much coverage, as yesterday was my birthday and there was much celebrating/hanging around the house not watching TV.


anybody indulge in any fantasy sports? my fantasy Baseball team is doing well, this weeks current .162 team batting average not withstanding...and my football draft went well. custom leagues with defensive players rock.

Seriously. I live in Wisconsin. Last week they pre-empted parts of the American Gladiators finale for a canceled Packers press conference. I'm from Michigan, so my only thought is at least he won't be making the Lions look like chumps again for a long time. (They do a good enough job of that themselves Beating_a_Dead_Horse.gif)

At least the Wings are awesome. After signing Hossa, they're totally going to repeat next year.

I watched that 400m Medley last night; it was pretty stunning.

My friend who exagerrates everything said that Brett Favre is in serious danger due to the curse of being on the cover of Madden. In this curse, every player who gets on the cover of a Madden game will later suffer some terrible injury.

Maybe he would stay retired then.

You would think! God, what else about him, besides his bravery in the face of certain death.

OT I am learning how to golf, which is similar to a sport. It's the hardest thing I've ever done!

Let's talk about Brett's rocket arm. mellow.gif

Also, your post seems to imply that golf is not a real sport! The PGA thinks you might want to correct that. btns.gif

Wow, please tell me someone else watched the Men's 4x100 Freestyle Relay.

France got SERVED.

Michael Phelps 8-Gold Medal chase seems much more plausible now. :XXXXX

And gogo Redeem Team in basketball, but L ohmy.gif L at Yao Ming making a 3 as the very first bucket of the game.

Seriously. Lezak gets the MVP for that.
He totally owned Bernard on that anchor.
46s 100M split time is just unreal...

Also, anyone else amused that the Swim center venue is nicknamed the Water Cube? btns.gif

I was amused 6 months ago, yes. btns.gif

Also, some of the fun of the olympics has been taken away from me because Canada is really shitting it up so far.

I respond so fast I might break the prison glass.
So you're saying you should be able to act like this to a forum administrator, or a teacher, or a police officer, or your own parents and get away with it. You're supposed to respect these folks.

I give the more northern nations a pass for the Summer Games usually.
I expect them to kick ass in Vancouver 2010 though...

Well, Canada does spend only a fraction of money on it's athletes that most countries do, so yeah. I should probably make use of that health care thing sometime.

-US Basketball roped and raped Greece in every hole in the human anatomy possible.

-Its pretty much a done deal that Michael Phelps is getting his 8 Golds in World Record times.

-HAAAAAA China gets bronze in Womans Individual Gymnastics. That's what they get for using 6-year olds.

-Track & Field starting soon. GET HYPE. Tyson Gay in yo mouf.
