the opening ceremony was so boring, the only part worth watching was the lighting of the cauldron, which looks awesome

beijing still has the best one by far, london wasnt even comparable

6 vs 6 = high chances of longer rally + more options = more entertaining.

Watch one while PVR records the other. Enjoy both. :ilied::fullofwin:

Just finished watching women's beach volleyball. Now watching USA vs S. Korea women's volleyball. :D. All I can think of when I watch the S. Korean women is which K-pop group they're from. Lol.

Though I'm sure NBC will air the basketball game tomorrow morning, there is a chance they might throw it on NBC Basketball channel, meaning we as Canadians will have to stream the damn game as it seems that CTV will not air it

oh yes.. btw.. i want to be here

Bullshit paying extra for sports channel and USA basketball is not even in the listing.

Ye Shiwen winning gold in Womens 400m individual medley was interesting today.

After 300m of fly, back and breaststroke, Ye was eight-tenths of a second behind USA's world champion, Elizabeth Beisel. And then, with 100m to go, something extraordinary happened. She swam her first 50m of freestyle in 29.25sec, and her second in 28.93. Those are just numbers, and mean little to those who do not study the sport. To put them in context, consider this: Ye was faster in the final 50m of her own 400m IM than Lochte was in his.

"Yeah, we were talking about that at dinner," Lochte said. "It is pretty impressive. She's fast. If she was there with me, she might have beat me." There's no might about it. Ye was 0.17 quicker over the final 50m of freestyle than the man many reckon to be the greatest all-round swimmer in the world. Beisel, Lochte's training partner, had no chance. She was two seconds slower over the final 50m.

KEVIN DURANT aww yea. Haha

Watching olympic weightlifting because nothing else is on. I noticed they have their own hypemen who got the crowd to start clapping and one dude even talked smack into the camera! It was usually the guy wearing the most color too.

^^^ LOL.

Watching USA men's water polo vs Montenegro.
I know water polo is supposed to be a tough sport and all but their swim caps make them look ridiculous. Well, not the swim caps themselves but the straps under the chin to keep them on. They're tied on with butterfly bows. WTF. Can't they have some sort of manly clip or something? :p

Hondaracer 07-29-2012 03:32 PM

That's what the water center looks like eh crazy

From the view of the inside the seats go up sooo high
