02:00:25 Aug 9th 08 - Sir Chucky:

no banners? pfft
plus the athletes will suffocate from the pollution


05:19:07 Aug 9th 08 - Lord Kevdwayne:

Boycotting them myself.... if fuhrer bush is there it has to be $h!t.


05:28:57 Aug 9th 08 - Mr. Jones:

Bush is the first U.S. President to attend an Olympic Games outside of the U.S.... anyways these Olympics should be better than the ones in Athens and it will be nice to see the Americans knocked out of the top spot in the world 2 weeks from now.


06:28:50 Aug 9th 08 - Sir Chucky:

sydney 2000 were the best olympics


06:34:26 Aug 9th 08 - Mr. Basch:

communist b@asterds


06:45:20 Aug 9th 08 - Mr. Iron:

06:48:00 Aug 9th 08 - Mr. Basch:

07:01:12 Aug 9th 08 - Sir Chucky:

07:44:44 Aug 9th 08 - Demonic Insomaniak:

good lord...is it that time again? *tries to look interested* ah crap...epic fail and facepalm to that effort...*walks off even less interested*


08:00:30 Aug 9th 08 - Mr. Uttkarsh Bhardwaj:

GO CANADA!!


13:05:14 Aug 9th 08 - Wolflord Karac:

america fallen of its top spot?

Phelps will win 8 golds (maybe 7), the US Basketball Team will win Gold. and really, those are the only two events that dont bore the hell out of everyone.


14:03:17 Aug 9th 08 - Mr. Basch:

Australia is gonna win em all, I garrantee it :D


14:43:20 Aug 9th 08 - Wolflord Karac:

i highly doubt it.


14:47:40 Aug 9th 08 - Mr. Dalak The Forlorn:

Well the last 2 Olympics we did come fourth on the medal tally which isnt bad given our small population..☻


17:53:11 Aug 9th 08 - Sir Gonzo The Great:

BRITAIN FTW! <33333

SPAIN *cough* FTW!  <3


18:03:32 Aug 9th 08 - Lord Griffinwing:

OLYMPICS ARE BOOOOORIIIING!


18:49:48 Aug 9th 08 - Mr. Facepalm:

I don't particularly like the fact that the Olympics are being held in China. But even I can be impressed by the pregame show. That was awesome! China will probablly win in Medal Count. And Ameica will come in second.

 

Edit:ZOMG Czeck Republic gets first Gold Medal :Yayz:


19:32:46 Aug 9th 08 - Mr. Penguin:

lithuania for basketballs gold medal !


12:09:09 Aug 10th 08 - Sir Harry The Crazy:

2012!


04:09:35 Aug 11th 08 - Sir Charley Statler:

Go swimming team =) and women's beach volleyball ^_^

1.     China 
2.     South Korea 
3.     United States 

That seems to  be the highlights =p it goes Gold, Silver, Bronze, Total...but China is on fire O_o
USA and China are tied for overall medals but China has most golds


19:00:57 Aug 11th 08 - Mr. Black:

its clearly fixed, or Britain would be at least 2nd


02:17:07 Aug 12th 08 - Mr. Jones:

Britain is using these Olympics as a learning experience for 2012...

The highlight of the Games so far has been the U.S. beating France in the 4x100m freestyle swimming relay. The U.S./China men's basketball game has also been a highlight of the Games, even though it lacked the drama of the swimming relay.


02:34:21 Aug 12th 08 - Sir Charley Statler:

I liked the swimming....and womens beach volleyball =p


02:43:48 Aug 12th 08 - Mr. Pathomatic:

I dont know why everyone has to get political over the olympics. 

Anyhow, yeah, that 4x100 relay had a fantastic finish.  So many teams were ahead of the world record but the last 2 lengths were just unbelieveable.


04:23:29 Aug 12th 08 - Mr. Facepalm:

 Basketball woman/men will be a complete victory for USA(with China getting owned in both cases).

Volleyball is intense this year.

Same with Football

Phelps was awesome.


06:01:00 Aug 12th 08 - Sir Charley Statler:

Gold  Silver  Bronze  Total 
1.     China  14 
2.     United States  19 
3.     South Korea 

 

^_^ swimming helped a LOT....


07:17:16 Aug 12th 08 - Mr. Ruby Knight:

The olympics are political.... Thats what they were created for;-) The country that wins the most medals gets respect for some reason...

Canada FTW ^^'  I'm american but I was born in Canada, kinda traditional for me to cheer them on.... Based on population ratio compared to other countries, Canada is one of the best in the olympics. Usually anyway...



10:54:06 Aug 12th 08 - Sir Revenge:

Phelps is just a beast O.o

I was watching highlights of the olympics last night, wow that guy can swim fast :o

The mens relay swim was immense, the top 5 ALL broke the WR, even Sweden!
And in that last 50, wow that american guy pumped like mad :o


15:17:15 Aug 12th 08 - Lord Random:

yay australia!

I may also be competing in the 2012 olympics =)

who said all VU players were nerds ;)


15:36:50 Aug 12th 08 - Prince Waldorfius Septim III:

Go Soviet Union!

*A man comes up and whispers in Septim's ear.

Oh, well, apparantly the Soviet Union hasn't existed for around seventeen years, so uhhhh...go USA!

2.     United States  22 
3.     South Korea  12 

 

China is on fire O_O


20:41:02 Aug 12th 08 - Sir Dead Oralive:

Well they are hosting it they had better be on fire.


21:20:48 Aug 12th 08 - Sir Caradoc IV:

America will kill lithuania dude. GTFO. nothing will stand in the NBA's way, the worlds best basketball leauge.

olympics arent political you dumb peice of crap. the team with the most medals gets the most respect because that shows their the most athleticlly inclined. in china's case, they just threaten their lives so they better do good.

anyways i like watching misty may-trenor and wambach in beach vollyball. they are damn sexy ;) the one may is getting a bit old though


21:28:46 Aug 12th 08 - Mr. Master Mind:

Well the fight isn't over America hasn't won the gold medal in basketball ,which we will, and the games still have a long way to go. America will catch up in Golds soon especailly tonight, well in China it'd be this morning I think ( dam timezones ) because of the two races Phelps will be in. I hope he gets his 11 gold medals!!!!!!


21:37:27 Aug 12th 08 - Mr. Facepalm:

For all 5 teams to break the WR is that a first?


21:54:09 Aug 12th 08 - Sir Caradoc IV:

i thought 8 were in that race... it was damn close and enjoyable, the highlight of the olympics so far


00:24:41 Aug 13th 08 - Mr. Peace War And Suffering:

did you guys hear that the girl that "sang" in the opning thing was miming.

and that somehow some of the fire works where computor genarated ( not sure how this worked rli)

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/7556058.stm

the vidio is some were further down the page.


03:12:31 Aug 13th 08 - Mr. The Gladiator:

Also, it appears that there was one or more girl gymnast for china under the age of 16 who had her birth certificate changed in order to appear to have 16 (With a new rule, athletes under the age of 16 at the time of the olympics are not allowed to participate at the games).

Romania has always been and will always stay #1 Gymnastics of the world .. right people?


03:49:39 Aug 13th 08 - Mr. Arkantos:

GOOOOO CANADA WHOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!


04:38:35 Aug 13th 08 - Mr. Killstone:

05:33:19 Aug 13th 08 - Mr. Killstone:

OMFG! phelps and CO did it! beat the world record by about 3 seconds! and were ahead of everyone else by about 4 or 5 body lengths! what total domination!


20:38:03 Aug 13th 08 - Sir Charley Statler:

Gold  Silver  Bronze  Total 
1.     China  17  27 
2.     United States  10  11  29 
3.     South Korea  13 

 

Update ^_^


21:03:08 Aug 13th 08 - Mr. Facepalm:

Yang agreed to it so I don't see anything wrong with what happened. All of our celebrities lip sync and we don't complain about it. Yeah it was in the Olympics but no one was really hurt by it. Though I kinda feel bad about that Yang girl.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/olympics/diving/7518019.stm

00:56:56 Aug 14th 08 - Mr. The Gladiator:

I belive you, then the age restriction must be to gymnastics only probably, I read an article 2-3 days ago.  As well as in wikipedia it says gymnasts minimum age in olympics went from 14 to 16


01:21:54 Aug 14th 08 - Mr. Peace War And Suffering:

yes, the chinese gymnastics deserves to be disqualified, but the olympics can't do anything since they have government issued passports. cheating chinese!
