Nah, riots only happen in Vancouver! I guess Montreal too. ;D

How about in Winnipeg, Brent?  Everything still OK or is there mass pandemonium?

We got another medal today, a Sliver for Women's Trampoline.

You weren't kidding? ???  I thought that was a joke. 

No, no rioting,only shivering and general bitterness at a lack of summer :-*

Ok, I'll bite.  The paralympics typically follow in the days after the regular version, held in the same country at the same venue. 

Aren't you clever.  Mommy and daddy must be thoroughly impressed with their big bad 11 year old.  Then again, ignorance begets ignorance, so maybe not.  Are they cousins too? :-*

Yes

Yes you are.
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

Another silver today for Canuckada.  Men's fours rowing.  Great race to watch.  Bloody wankin' poms stole it from us.  Well, not really, they raced bloody well, so good for them.  Tough race for both teams, hard to have a second place finisher.  0.08 separating first and second place.  Wow.

I was watching some trampoline events this morning.  Some pretty kick ass stuff there.  Wish I could do that.  Looks fun!

Anyway, another abhorent effort by Dream Team Jr. today, getting spanked by Lithuania in the final couple minutes.  Ugly, I tells ya'.  Even if they wind up winning the Gold medal next week, they'll still be viewed by everyone as a major disappointment, and will always be remembered for being the first team of NBA'ers to lose in the Olympics - and not just once, but twice, and maybe more.  Dumbasses.

Swimming's all done, and Phelps bailed on the final medley race in favor of one of his teammates, but still earned his 6 Gold, and 8th medal overall.  Not bad!

Damned men's gymnastics results are all ****** up now, being protested, judges being suspended, medals are all tainted, etc.  Just stupid.  Looks like the Korean guy should've had the Gold, based on some asinine scoring error.  Idiots.

Track and Field's finally getting going.  Should be fun, especially to see how many more athletes get banned for failed drug tests...   :P  Updated medal standings:

 United States    49 20 17 12
 China    41 18 13 10
 Russia    34 7 13 14
 Australia    28 11 7 10
 Germany    28 8 9 11
 Japan    22 12 5 5
 France    21 7 7 7
 Great Britain    20 6 7 7
 South Korea    19 5 10 4
 Italy    18 6 6 6
 Netherlands    15 3 5 7
 Ukraine    13 6 2 5
 Belarus    10 2 3 5
 .
 .
 .
 .
 .
 .
 .
 .
 Canada    3 0 2 1

Man, what's the deal with you Canucks, eh?  Just 'cause it's always winter up there means you guys can't compete for **** in the Summer Olympics?!  C'mon now...   ::)
