    I saw that italian chick, I though John Madden was playing for the italian water polo team "confused:

    Did you guys see the young (female) italian volleyball player :bounce2: God god she was yummy. She was crying after they lost, some dude at the olympic village probably scored big time if he played his cards right by offering her "comfort".

    The track and field was awesome. usain bolt is a monster, I don't think he even needed to catch his breath after, the guy is such a showman.

    I actually also caught some female handball and it was pretty good surprisingly, I liked it.

    since this is the backlash threak....

    I knew the minute that the announcers started talking about how that mckayla chick was a shoo in for the vault gold and the other girls were simply competing for second place, she was going to fall on her face. And Bob Costas is still a ripe turd sitting out in 100 degree heat.

    Lastly, since we spoke about this previously on this threak, Mushnik is a self righteous asshole most of the time but I agree with him here:

    Every four years, NBC’s Olympic audience is expected to ignore what’s impossible to miss:

    What’s going on with the women gymnasts? Are they free-range females? Or are they, as widely suspected and even reported — outside of NBC, of course — systemically growth deprived? After all:

    1) Why, in their mid-teens to early 20s, are they almost all tiny? Dad’s shown; he’s about 6-foot. Mom’s shown; she’s 5-4. And their 17-year-old world-class gymnast daughter is 4-11.

    Odd, no? For all the smiley face interviews, how do Mom and Dad explain that? How do they feel about it?

    2) Why are they so under-developed? Virtually no breasts, no hips, no natural physiological — or just plain logical — progression.

    Investigations have included testimonies by former U.S. Olympians that they were so training formula-abused that their menstrual cycles were delayed by years, and that they were so calcium-deficient during normal growth years that they are highly susceptible to bone breaks and other osteopathic issues — and for the rest of their lives.

    The famous/infamous coach of the Romanian then U.S. teams of the 1980s and 90s, Bela Karolyi, was later accused by several of his former Olympians of verbal and physical abuse, including insults about their weight, demands to train and compete while injured, and reliance on near-starvation diets that made their bones brittle.

    But the successes of Karolyi’s gymnasts seemed to justify, or at least excuse, such methods. And likely perpetuate them.

    3) Why do so many have squeaky voices, the voices of 10- to 12-year-olds?

    4) Why do so many have chalky, pallid complexions, as if just pulled from a freezer?

    Or is all of the above just none of our N-B-C business? Again.

    Fuck NBC and the Olympics this year

    I remember I watched everything online when it was in Beijing (but I was also utilizing the campus internet/cable)

    Still I pretty much missed everything good it appears from others comments.

    ^^^^ I was thinking about that when I watched the documentary on Olga Korbut. While she was definitely a girl, she still had hips and many of her competitors looked like young women.

    Costas is a twit. The guy calling the women's gymnastics is worse.

    USA! Great game.

    BBC announcers are great, you all should really get onto the BBC stream.
