I'm pretty sure some Russian dude literally crapped his pants during the race walk event during these games.

hmm.. well, I am certainly not the best speller in the world, but spell-check doesn't seem to have any beef with it, except the word "villainize", which as far as I can tell is correct.

if there is anything severely egregious that you see, shoot me a PM and let me know so I can change it. I'd rather not look like a complete idiot if possible. I do a good enough job of that without spelling errors.

Effin ref decided to determine the outcome of the women's soccer semi between Canada and the US. Awesome game and a superhuman hatrick by Chrisitne Sinclair. Just a shame about how it had to be decided.

Don't worry. As soon as sawing wood, throwing axes, dogs jumping into a lake, and stomping on other competitors faces becomes Olympic events, I'm sure you'll win a few more medals. Probably still a bronze, but hey, at least it's something.

This has been New Zealand's 2nd best Olympics EVER :-L :-B
All 5 of our golds have been boat-related :-b
Because of the nothern hemisphere times I've only caught 2 of our golds live, but that's still awesome :-D

Australia on the other hand, worst Olympics since 1988. Hilarious.
Saw someone on TV complaining that failure this time is due to lack of money. WHAAAAAAAAAT? (Australia spends hundreds of millions on their team)
