7's stupidity doesn't stop. They called a French runner as German, and earlier today, their on-screen text mentioned 5 golds are being contested at the Bird's Nest tonight, while the talking head said that 4 golds are being contested. I've still no idea which number is correct!

Apparently they want to liven up table tennis with skimpy clothing on the women.

I'm sure it's a joke.

Well I would if it weren't 4:30 in the morning. Apparently his cell has been lost, though no one bothered to tell me this, so if he's out working (he cuts down trees and such) there's no way to contact him. I really hope he's at the firestation today (he's also a fireman) because then he's stuck in one place all day, and not very hard to find.

Don't worry, I'd understand in that scenario!

There's been the odd misidentifying the athlete with TVNZ, but I'm willing to let it slide in the heat of the moment.

I see Ian's changed his user title. Awesome.

On a totally unrelated note, you know what pisses me off? Last night in the 200m, Walter Spearmon of the US came third and got disqualified for stepping out of his lane. The US initially appealled, but upon viewing the footage, knew they had no case - but spotted Churandy Martina, the silver medallist, also stepped out of his lane and protested him. Successfully. So Martina was stripped of his medal and two other Americans moved into silver and bronze. Now, it's fair enough, the guy did something worthy of disqualification, but it does piss me off because Martina's silver would've been only the second medal the Netherlands Antilles has ever won, and it will probably cease to be a political entity before the 2012 Games, so this was their last chance too.

That is harsh! But so is the one false start and you're out rule.

I'd heard that. Come the fuck on, people.

Have you noticed how not even figure-revealing swimsuits save synchronised swimming?
