    Got a little chill watching Oscar Pistorius advance. What a stud.

    Just saw that - hell of a thing.

    I'm sure NBC will cover it with a 30 minute mini-documentary on Carl Lewis.

    I'm a Federer fan, but I'm kinda rooting for Murray tomorrow. His post-Wimbledon final speech was so heartfelt.

    Maria looked like she was about to cry during the second set.

    I chuckled when one of the commentators said something to the effect of this victory marking Serena as "one of the greatest." She already is the greatest female tennis player of all time, no question.

    Did anyone see the 94 kg weightlifting finals? The Kazakh guy set a world record in the C & J and didn't even look like he was struggling. 512 lbs, Jesus Christ.

    I just caught the tail end of the indoor cycling, some sort of 1 on 1 duels, it was exciting as hell.

    Hope they show more of that.

    I spit my drink out at this. Well done sir.

    I really hope he medals. Shit, I think he might actually be able to win. He almost caught the Dominican kid.
