but in all seriousness, it's *amazing* how much better he's gotten since 2008. he eats this super-strict diet and does these crazy strongman workouts where he flips tires and pulls chains and stuff. big respect.

That was so much fun last time, and I'm really sad that NSW likely won't be here with us for it this time .

Has he retired from Interference?

He's one of my favorite all time posters. Seriously.



Another of the athletes I'll be watching...

Allyson Felix.

Also, this is one of our swimmers. It's pretty much my favourite picture ever.

Look at the lengths of the yellow and black condoms. Horribly offensive and funny.

Why do I have the feeling that this time, the media will be focusing more on getting the dirt on who slept with who and what parties went on, than the actual athletic events? I could easily imagine some TV commentator blaming a faltering athlete on partying too hard the previous night.

I don't see what the big deal is about the sexcapades. Athletes have beautiful bodies - who wouldn't want to sleep with them? (Although I would raise my eyebrow over the female gymnasts. You never know how young they are) Just enjoy the sporting events and let the athletes have their fun.

To have an awesome body, to travel to various parts of the world, to sleep with someone who doesn't speak your language...who wouldn't?

"The next morning," Lakatos says, "swear to God, the entire women's 4x100 relay team of some Scandinavian-looking country walks out of the house, followed by boys from our side. And I'm just going, 'Holy crap, we'd watched these girls run the night before.'"

And on it went for eight days as scores of Olympians, male and female, trickled into the shooter's house -- and that's what everyone called it, Shooters' House -- at all hours, stopping by an Oakley duffel bag overflowing with condoms procured from the village's helpful medical clinic. After a while, it dawned on Lakatos: "I'm running a friggin' brothel in the Olympic Village! I've never witnessed so much debauchery in my entire life."



Uh, that's just awesome.

Today it's not enough to run up the stairs and light the torch - today it has to be an extravaganza extraordinare.....as shown in the following clip:



Turin and Sydney were awesome but the one to beat is Beijing - I have no idea what the Brits have got in mind but it will have to be monumental.

Speaking of monumental - you have GOT to watch this torch lighting of the 2008 special olympics in Beijing - WOW.





On a sadder note: The Israeli sportscasters covering the opening ceremony will observe their own one minute of silence in honor of the 11 Israeli athletes murdered at the 1972 Munich Olympics. I agree that a public observance of a minute silence during the opening ceremonies isn't really appropriate (mainly because it's not realistic to expect the participating Arab nations to mourn the loss of Israelis) BUT I do believe that at least some mention of it should be made in the opening speeches.

On that matter, here is an interesting National Geographic documentary about this tragedy.



Let us hope that everyone stays safe during these Olympics and that the spirit of sportsmanship will prevail over politics.

Good luck to everyone!!

Well, I guess watching horses running and jumping could be just as interesting as watching human athletes running and jumping if you like that sort of thing.
As for synchronised swimming - I look at it as gymnastics in the water - it's very pleasant to look at - like in the "Twisting by the pool" video by Dire Straits.
