Correct

Tell you what I just couldn't get into the 2008 games but I'm loving these ones. I watched a bit of Handball this afternoon, Norway Vs France Awesome sport.

Archery gold game down to the last shot too, which was awesome.

How good is having Foxtel man

I'm furiously masturbating to the women's beach volleyball.

Hope the Black Sticks can hold on to this lead. It's time for revenge after Australia beat us to the Commonwealth Games gold in a penalty shoot-out. Turns out we're ranked higher in the world than the Aussie team. Who knew!
I can't believe they were actually the Black Cocks. That's so great.

2008 was my favourite Olympics ... I think because a well-timed illness left me bedridden for about a fortnight so I watched practically all of it, and SBS had shitloads of coverage so I wasn't left furious with rage from the pisspoor efforts of Channels 7, 9, or 10.

This time around, work, Channel 9, and Australia's shitty timezone I think will keep me from seeing half as much as I'd like. Shame Foxtel costs a billion dollars.

This Olympics is already my favorite, based simply on how much more I've been able to watch.

And you guys are joking about the Black Cocks, right?

I don't think the time zone is too bad. Obviously I'm not getting up 5am to see Steph Rice have a sook but I can stay up to midnight and see a fair bit.

2000 was my favourite. It feels so very long ago. Obviously Sydney's time zone comparison with Melbourne helped . Plus it all happened in school holidays.

But I loved it, Roy and HG made the games for me. I got right into everything. I remember it as basically the birth of Lauren Jackson and the Opals almost beat the USA (they probably got flogged but I remember it as close.) and it was such a good run.

Didn't care much for Cathy Freeman but the Swimming with Susie (O'Neal?) and Patria Thomas with Thorpe and crazy boy Hackett was great.

We're normally in bed by 10pm so the timezone blows from my perspective. Morning events and that's it; not sure I'll be staying up for anything or not, especially given Nine's coverage. Rio Olympics will hopefully be better - most of the big events should be on in the mid or late morning for us.

She wasn't tripped, she tripped. There's a difference.

JB is calling the Rowing and he sounds so bored at times. Would be better for him to do the Beach Volleyball or Handball

I lol'd at Dwayne Russell doing the equestrian events. Unfortunately there was no place he could mention 'from the paint' or 'shorts it'.
