the aussies as a whole are better at the swimming events though. really beyond phelps we have no one who is "dominate"
i just hope USA basketball rights the ship. i'm also interested to see how we do in the speed events in track. our defending champion is out and i'm not sure if we can beat the 2 fastest men as of right now in the world (bolt and powell)
^ no team will EVER be as good as that team for 2 reasons: 1) look at the '92 roster, seriously. 2) the rest of the world has became much better since then closing the gap on our dominating ways.
we still are the best, but we're not the completely unstoppable force we once were. mainly because teams like greece, argentina, and spain have gotten considerably better.
We only have 20 million, the USA has more like 350 mill and we still rank 4th in the medals. Plus China will own the medal tally this year.
Sitting here watching the opening cermony I think I'll put a DVD on instead. I really hate this shit. It's like all the ads we've had for the games with the commentators talking it up; as though the commentators actually contribute to the athletic endevour in anyway shape or from.:jerkoff1:
Phelps has just won his first gold in the 400 individual medley. Sadly Hackett bombed in the 400 freestyle with Korean Parks taking the gold.
Why the fuck am I up at 3:40am watching the Olympics?
Hottest women of the Olympics anyone?
