His mom clarified today :lol:
Although, one night is better than none
That's all I need, Giraffe! He's a little dumb. I like a big brain along with big muscles.
Okay, waiting on Phelps to do his THANG on this next race! I hope he gets a GOLD!!! He just seems like a different man after winning last night. You can see it in the way he walks, talks to the reporters, everything.
Dude. He doesn't have any legs. That's not much of an advantage.
He might not be smart, but he is funny. I could handle that. But if one night is all, I'm OK with that, too
Holy closest race I have ever seen! I don't think I have ever seen all 8 swimmers that close at the finish!!!
giraffe~that was awesome to watch!!
That's what I thought, too, but I'm telling you, the other runners are mad!
I think I'm going to cry...
NBC has been blocked in Central America!!!
There's not an emoticon to describe my grief...
They're showing the Olympics on another channel, but only during the day, no prime time stuff. And since it's the Costa Rican broadcast they're showing really random stuff like judo and handball. And while it's nice to see other countries and other sports... I WANNA SEE USA COMPETE.
That's HORRIBLE! Can you see it on the internet on NBC's site?
Not to be mean, but the human interest stories are a bit heavy tonight. WHERE ARE THE SPORTS?!
No because they can't show it outside the USA! I have a program on my computer that changes my whatever to a USA one so that I can access websites like Hulu and Netflix. But somehow NBC still knows!!!
Now I'm scouring the internet to find some sort of illegal way to watch... I have a serious Olympic problem
lucybelle, It has to do with your IP address. I read about Americans hacking into BBC's broadcast. (I would do it in a heartbeat if I had any idea how.)
I'll have to look into it.
I'm sooooo upset. *sigh*
My boyfriend on the other hand.. I think he's a little excited he won't be forced to watch Olympics for the next week.
If it helps, with the exception of a few good swimming races, you aren't missing much tonight.
Well, except for the shot of Lochte in the stands they just flashed while I was typing
If you google chronicle of the horse forums there's a whole lot of information on how to do it on the equestrian events thread.
GOOD NEWS! Thanks for the BBC tip!
On the BBC website they have full videos of all the events!! Watching swimming finals now
Noticed that, too! LOL! Did you see the reports of him hooking up with the Brazilian swimmer. She's beautiful. Can't remember her name.

Serena Williams, one of my favorite tennis players, just won the gold! Her sister Venus will play doubles with her later today.
band~I heard he was with some Austrialian swimmer....must be getting around.
MsI~I heard that! Congrats to her!!
I feel bad for our guy Merritt. He had to pull up out of the race because his hamstring started hurting again.
I have not been watching the Olympics due to work and other family obligations, BUT how many gold medals does the US have now?
23 gold, 10 silver, 13 bronze=46 total.
China has 48.
Add the uniforms they made, and it's one to about.
They always talk about the major hook-ups going on in the Olympic Village. I think Phelps once said at least 75% of the athletes are randomly hooking up.
Was just about to post this article
So Lochte said it, not Phelps.
100,000 is a lot of condoms! For about 10,000 athletes. That's 10 each. With 1 per pair, that means an average of 20 per person. Oh my!
That's a lot of sex!!! I knew it could crazy, but didn't realize it was THAT crazy! I like what they did with the Olympic rings. :lol:
I'm not sure I could let me teenage child be an Olympian
Not after reading that article!
Remember only "75%" of the athletes are participating in these extra activities. So that's about 13 per person
I liked the quote "Even if their face is only a 7, their body is a 20":lol::lol:
I'm watching some events on the Costa Rican channel, and even though they don't show everything I want to see, the announcers are so much more enthusiastic! You should have heard them announce that 400 medley relay! They're screaming and rolling their R's like there's no tomorrrrrrrrrow!
My favorite line: the Olympic village is like a frat party with a very nice gene pool.
I would worry about my underage daughter (the gymnasts). My bet is their parents whisk them out of there pretty quickly!
Have you seen Jon Stewart's take on the spoiler alerts?! It's HILARIOUS!
And because we all love him so... It really is a good thing that he's pretty and swims like a fish...
Good thing! :lol:
I couldn't even make it all the way through theLochte interview video!!
Love me some Jon Stewart!
