OK, already ascended to the top of the Medal Count, with 4 now (1G, 1S, 2B).  Hopefully we stay in that top spot for the next two weeks!   8)

Even picked up a Sailing Medal!   :P

The Greek sprinters and their coach just got officially kicked out of the games.  Guess that pretty much nullifies their 200m Gold and 100m Silver from Sydney, eh?!   :P

why? steroids?  :P

You don't want to start down that road.  Two words:

Marion Jones.

You wanna speculate?  So do I.  What else can we nullify?

Oh, I know.  I agree with you there.   ;)  Many more where that one came from too!

The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself

Yeah, I was gonna mention that Hoops fiasco yesterday, but never got around to it.  Just pathetic.  Not sure what the hell the deal is with men's U.S. teams...  Hell, our baseball team ("America's pastime", mind you) didn't even freaking qualify for the Olympics.  Talk about embarrassing...   ::)

Our whole Olympics is just way down this year.  Disappointing.  We suck now.

China and the Aussies are kicking some serious ass though.  Congrats Hemish!   ;)

11 of our 12 medals are in swimming.  Guess that's the only thing we can do anymore...   :-\

Oddly enough, our Sailing medal from the first day seems to have disappeared from the Medal Count.  Guess that must've been an error, or something.  Thought it was odd we won a sailing medal.  Guess not...

One thing I'll say is that our Olympic women kick serious ass over our men!

Do we have any track athletes left?  I thought they were all suspended, or had quit...   ::)

You can almost guarantee a gold for the lovely duo of Misty May and Kerri Walsh in women's beach volleyball.  I wouldn't mind being spiked by one of those two.

Yeah, they kick MAJOR ass.  90 wins in a row on the beach circuit, up until just recently.  Absolutely dominant.  Only question is whether May's stomach is fully healed.  Sure hope so!

The men's teams (beach v-ball) are looking crappy though.  Blanton's already gotten punked (should've stuck with Fonoi), and the other pair barely squeeked by the Aussies yesterday.  I actually played beach volleyball a few times against Blanton's gold medal winning teammate in Sydney - Eric Fonoimoana.  He used to come by our dorms at UCSB my freshman year and play with us, since one of his UCSB teammates was a buddy of mine in the dorms.  Of course, he generally kicked our asses pretty good, but that goes without saying...   ;)

Love me some beach!  God, I miss playing it.  Probably my favorite sport ever...

and speaking of great sports, Canada wins it's first medal.  Bronze in synchronized diving.  ::)  At least it was 10m.  Still.
