Volley ball is mine. I played in highschool and play in two leagues on base. That's why. I watch most of it though.
The Chinese are like machines in this year trying to dominate. That opening ceremony was amazing. I'd love to got to see that huge LED scroll up close and play with it.

V-Ball for me as well. I played (beach) when I was a much yonger man and have always been a follower of the AVP tour.

I love watching handball. It's like a mixture of arena football and hockey.

I used to love Olympic boxing before they defanged it after the corruption of the 1988 games and the subsequent retooling of the judging system. There was talk they were going to change it for these games. We'll see.

I SO enjoyed Team USA smacking the taste out of China's mouth in basketball this morning. All it needed was Lebron looking into the camera and saying, "Clean up your city's air pollution and respect your people's human rights, suckas!"

He'd be on a freighter coming home via Shanghai (so he could see what air pollution REALLY looks like) if he had.

Who are you speaking of? Phelps? Think he can talk all the smack he wants. Hansen was talking smack earlier....saying how he's hanging back a little, and it's not like he wanted to paint a target on his back or something like that. He wanted to surprise them or something. And then the finals and he doesn't even get a bronze. Oopsie.
