Forgive me if I am not seeing the obvious here, but are you accusing Bolt of not being clean? Just curious.

He made this same joke during the Barry Bonds fiaso and then claimed Killebrew the HR champ.

I thought that was DK?

Donkey Kong is easily one of the worst roiders I've ever seen. :-t

Pythagorean expectation would put him around 9.49, but he continually underperforms due to factors beyond his control (he's unlucky). He starts off the blocks slowly due to inconsistent starting gun shots. Also, the track surface is such that it favors shorter runners.

Curling is interesting. I wouldn't watch it every week or anything, but it's entertaining every four years. Same with most of the Olympic events. In the winter Olympics the short-track speed skating, and any of the skiing events where death is a posibility are worth checking out. Anything decided by judges instead of times or scores gets the bozack though.

QFT. All those odd sports are good to watch every few years. And judges are dumb.

Bolt is incredible. He's no Haile Gebrselassie but still amazing. Runners are just cool.
