Anyone watching the Olympics?

  1. I'm not a huge fan. The wife watches the Equestrian Events. I don't mind the weight lifting, particularly the woman's snatch.

  12. Same, they allow professionals for one sport to compete but don't allow it for others. They announce the winner(s) as 'the best in the world' yet there are other people out there that are significantly better then the people who win gold, there just not allowed to compete in the sport(s).

    Usually just watch the Olympics for the wrestling, judo, swimming, and the 100m race(s) if there on.

  15. There has been 11 confirmed positive results so far and 1 bloke who has not allowed compete because he wouldn't give a sample. Will be interesting to see what it gets up to once all the results are back.

  19. A Scotsman, an Englishman and an Irishman want to get in, but they haven't got tickets.

    The Scotsman picks up a manhole cover, tucks it under his arm and walks to the gate.

    "McTavish, Scotland," he says, "Discus," and in he walks.

    The Englishman picks up a length of scaffolding and slings it over his
    shoulder.

    "Waddington-Smythe, England," he says, "Pole vault," and in he walks.

    The Irishman looks around, picks up a roll of barbed wire and tucks it under his arm, "O'Malley, Ireland," he says, "Fencing."

  20. No choice, SWMBO puts the Games on regardless: but I do get her to watch Gem/Ch90 so that it's at least in HD.

    If you have 3D, watch 96: they sometimes run the Opening as a filler and the cameras are in different locations to the speccy high angle stuff, much more interesting and 'in there' with the performers :)
