Watching the Olympics

Today's coverage of the Olympics by the major sporting channels can leave you yearning for the old Wide World of Sports. Coverage is pretty lame to say the least. I understand the stress on American athletes but it leaves you wanting the old days when every country and every sport was covered fairly. Well thank God HD cable has more channels covering the Olympics so I can catch these lesser athletes in those lesser sports perform. Sorry compete.

Brazilian Synchronized Swimming Bia And Branca Feres




Paraguayan Track & Field (Javelin) Leryn Franco




Brazilian Beach volleyball Camillinha Saldanha







What do we have to look forward to 4 years

American Track & Field ( Pole Vaulter) Allison Stokke



Watching college track and field just keeps getting better and better. She just missed the qualifying height but she is just a freshman.

Politics and Olympics

The Irish take on our elections


An email from Ireland to all of their brethren in the States...a point to ponder despite your political affiliation:
'We, in Ireland , can't figure out why you people are even bothering to hold an election in the United States
On one side, you had a pants wearing female lawyer, married to another lawyer who can't seem to keep his pants on, who just lost a long and heated primary against a lawyer, who goes to the wrong church, who is married to yet another lawyer, who doesn't even like the country her husband wants to run !
Now...On the other side, you have a nice old war hero whose name starts with the appropriate 'Mc' terminology, married to a good looking younger woman who owns a beer distributorship !!
What in God's name are ya lads thinkin over in the colonies !

I like their take on this one.
