    They're NBA pros, of course you can't expect them to get used to the shorter distance. :lol: :rolleyes:

    Eventually the USA basketball teams streak was going to end, sadly they got crushed, but i still have faith in them. they have talent they just need to learn how to use it together.

    The opening ceremony was just fantastic. I loved the fact they featured almost every Greek god ever - I'm into Greek Myths so yeah. I'll admit, it did drag on a bit, and that "pregnant" woman with the lightbulb as a bump scared the bloody hell out of me, but yeah, it was very well done. It was great to see each country too - even the one's who's names I can't pronounce.

    The Judo was just inspiring. I loved watching it - I was literally yelling each and every technique that anyone used. Being a former fighter myself, I can get pretty passionate sometimes. Frederique [something] (FRA) against [a Japanese woman who's name I've forgotton] for the gold medal was amazingly fast paced and has really got me wanting to fight again. When I was younger I used to think about being on the olympic team but that's in the past now - I'm too old to join now I think :unsure:

    Back on topic: I've actually been really impressed with the French performance so far this year. A gold in Fencing and I think something else as well, a silver in Judo and a Bronze is something else.

    Allez la France ^_^

    I know! That's what makes me so angry because now, no matter how many golds or how many medals he gets, it'll be viewed as a failure for him. He could win six golds and two bronze, thus equaling the most number of medals ever won at a single Olympics, and the media would still label him as a "failure". :rolleyes:

    I updated my original psot with day three stats. I have the total medal count (in cases of ties, gold breaks it), and the gold medal count.

    Meh, It's only been swimming, gymnastics, and cycling. I sense good things in tomorrow's rowing. And Nestor/Niemayer should do us fine in tennis. We'll have seven medals by Friday. that's a bold statement. but that's my guess. :lol:
