Olympics

Olympic thoughts:

NBC sucks ass.

Opening ceremonies were amazing.

NBC's 'China Expert' is a moron in general but in particular because he stated that the Great Wall was erected to keep out the 'Barbarians'. It was the 'Mongols'.

China's a big ass country. Government sucks, but the people and the culture amaze me. Best cooks in the world.

The 4 X 100 freestyle relay last night kicked ass. U.S.A.!

There should be a TV channel entirely devoted to international women's beach volleyball.

'Sweet Home Alabama was played during a men's beach volleyball court change. Nice.

I have a crush on Natalie Coughlin.

U.S.A. has a black man on the swim team. There goes that stereotype.

The only redeeming quality of badminton is that the game is played with a 'shuttlecock'... uh-huh huh.... I said 'shuttlecock'.

I coulda beena contenda.

NBC sucks ass (worth repeating).

McCain's Olympic ad is weak. Obama's kicks much ass.

Would someone PLEASE tell Bush to go hide in a fucking closet until January 09. What an utter embarrassment to the country this simpleton is.

First, here's a look at incurious George during the opening ceremonies bouncing his knee up and down, looking at his watch, and generally just being a petulant douche whose internal monologue goes something like; "When can we leave? When can we leave? When can we leave?"



Then.....

President Bush Not So Good With American Flags

Final Olympic thoughts......

When you work from home you can watch every single game they've got. Have a question about synchronized diving? I'm your man.

Excluding the douchiness of NBC, I like the Olympics very much.

Hey everybody, have you seen my balls.... *sniff*.... They're big and salty and brown.... *sniff-sniff*... If you ever need a quick pick me up, just put my balls in your mouth.....

RIP, Isaac.

Put 'em in your mouth and suck 'em.

This is a weird one:

Cloned puppies may have exposed mystery:

"SALT LAKE CITY — A woman who made news around the world when she had five pups cloned from her beloved pit bull Booger looked very familiar to some who saw her picture: She may be the same woman who 31 years earlier was accused of abducting a Mormon missionary in England, handcuffing him to a bed and making him her sex slave."

Mongols, barbarians... picky picky picky. :)

When NBC got the lock on the Olympic broadcast I decided never to watch again. Not that I am entirely confident that one of the other major channels would not repeat the errors of NBC's ways, notably spending more time on "heartwarming" stories of overcoming long odds to Zzzzzzzzzz

Oh, wait, sorry. Must have dozed off. Right. Not enough time showing actual competitive events, and have decent commentary about it.

They might have well said that they the wall was built to keep out Cherokee invaders, binky. ;-)

God, if only they would do more of the heartwarmers, b. Its all salacious (dumped by boyfriend who posted naked pictures of said athlete on online) now.

Or, its the commentator who won a medal in skeet shooting 12 years ago and has their one and only chance to ever be a commentator on their sport.

Insipid shit.

But, the action has been pretty damn good, though, IMO.
