Me too. It would be the best Olympics ever.

Antwerp was a toilet.

... aaaand that's about all Brisbane has to offer. Seriously, can you imagine the Games being opened by Joh Bjelke-Pietersen Campbell Newman Joh Bjelke-Pietersen and the white shoe brigade?

I'd just about surrender my Australian citizenship out of embarrassment.

Let's hold it in Perth instead. It'll be the first thing that's ever happened there outside of Polly Farmer and Nic Naitanui. Give them something to jump up and down about that isn't related to "you eastern states bludging off our mineral wealth" ... speaking of which, they can use that to pay for the Olympics too!

I love stuff like that, very adorable. I hope Redhill doesn't get pissed because the kid didn't give him a medal, too.

Dude, no one likes a person who goes around correcting people. Do you know how annoying that can be?

Usain Bolt is OUT OF HIS MIND ... at least according to Bruce Jenner ... who doesn't think the Jamaican sprinter was living in reality when he called himself the greatest athlete of all time.

Jenner -- who took home the gold in the decathlon in the 1976 Olympics -- was leaving LAX this weekend when we asked him about the declaration of greatness Bolt made about himself after dominating at the Olympics last week

"He's the best sprinter," Jenner said ... adding, "He can't pole vault, he can't throw anything ... that's an athlete."

Jenner made it clear ... he believes decathletes rank the highest when deciding "most athletic" ... and when asked if Bolt would be able to compete in his sport, Bruce didn't hold back ..."He would be terrible."

i wonder who would win in the plastic surgery olympics?

Decathletes are the definition of jack of all trades, master of none.

I rate "athletes" based on their training regimens. Since elite gymnasts train 8 hours a day, 6 days a week year round since they have no "season" (and generally train this much by age 11) I rate them at/near the top. It's interesting that a child actor can't film movies on that schedule because it is considered "work".

I find gymnasts the most impressive. I am more impressed by, say, Kayla's vault than I am by how fast Bolt runs. I understand the elemental, primordial appeal of "fastest man alive" ... But watching someone push the boundaries of what is known and unknown, to find new ways and new limits of the ways in which the human body can perform in increasingly complex ways, that's thrilling to me.

I could run 100m right now, rather slowly.

I couldn't even begin to do a back handspring.
