it's time the Commonwealth Games got the flick. i have never been less interested for a sporting event, nationally, let alone internationally.

i'd rather watch our under 11s at the cricket club bowl 10 no balls an over than this.

I really didn't think I'd be this underwhelmed by the tournament.

It's completely unnecessary, and I think a lot more people will realise that once this is said and done. The only way you can call Delhi a success is that none of the stadiums have fallen over yet.

At this point, Australia has won more golds than I knew the Commonwealth Games had in total.

I feel sorry for the commentators who get excited for every gold medal won.

if this was a finishing second contest, we'd be awesome.

I don't know how they do it.

I suppose they just employ goldfish, so that every Aussie gold medal feels like the first of the tournament. I've watched precious little of the Games not just because of the Australian gold rush, but because of how painful Channel 10's coverage is (or, for that matter, seemingly any commercial sporting coverage in Australia nowadays - it wasn't always this bad!).

i found out today that Bathurst was gradually delayed... the race finished at 453 but we saw it 'til 520. i was wondering what was going on since i usually switch over as soon as the race is finished to Suzuka. turns out they were pausing the race for ad breaks.

I thought something was off with that! I mean, we've seen races with plenty of pace car incidents run that late, but in such an uneventful race, I definitely expected it to end earlier. Well, now it's all clear. Can't say I'm tremendously shocked.

By the way, fun fact: last time Australia wasn't top of the medal table at the Commonwealth Games was 1986.

the unified team is the former ussr. it's the same principle as the cis football (soccer) team that played in 1992 as well.
