Rove's pretty funny on this. My respect for him skyrocketed when I heard him say "cunt" at a comedy improv gig.

Australia was a great deal more aggressive and had more shots on goal. Surprised they came up with nothing.

Speaking of Roy & HG, the Foxtel commentators keep saying how Seebohm's "thrown down the gauntlet".

Our girls start their qualifying round at 8:45 am CST. So, in a little less than four and a half hours from this post. I'm gonna grab some sleep now so I can get up for it.

If you aren't all up for it and watching live I'll be completely fucking disgusted.

There is a big difference between Olympic basketball and the NBA. So much slower and nowhere near as clean. A lot of snatching and grappling.

Kayaking and weightlifting: two events I absolutely love watching.

Skeet shooting is awesome, not really made for tv though. Watching Water Polo right now.

Anyone see the air pistol? Worst TV sport ever?

Team Handball is something I enjoy watching every four years. And now that I can stream full matches, I'm thrilled.

Time for the USA to hopefully teach France a valuable lesson in men's hoops.

Lochte looked fantastic. his work ethic has paid off and he earned this.
How long ago was it that he gained, and lost, 25 pounds? I was shocked by that-obviously when you've been in that kind of shape for that long and you put that kind of weight on, it's a shock to the system. When you see Ryan Lochte pushing that tire..and wasn't there another swimmer who criticized Michael's work ethic? I don't even know how old they both are. Twenty something, but I guess Michael is older.

yes, we do get privileged to once-in-a-generation time warp athletes (Phelps, Janet Evans, Mary T. Meagher, Ian Thorpe, Spitz), but ... just, well, i'm uncomfortable with it is all.
We watched it live and she was unreal in her final 100, almost comical. I wouldn't be surprised if something was amiss.
