    Not a very exciting line up for the Thai athletes. Some guy in the 10000m.

    The Opening Ceremony is at 17:30 Thailand I believe.

    I'm betting on loads of drones.

    Just seen the highlights of Germany-Brazil. It seems the squareheads Olympic team is shit as well. (4-2)

    And Mexico gubbed France too. (4-1)

    Egypt held Spain (0-0), and the Aussies got a commendable win over the Argies (2-0).

    Women's beach volleyball is the event to watch, especially when the Brazilians are playing. The amount of wrist injuries is a worry though, some blokes can't play golf for weeks after a game.

    This Olympics is bound to be a major fuckup. The opening ceremonies are a major disappointment, way too much Japanese micro-management. They should never have allowed these games to go ahead without the fans, totally boring. The major advertisers seem to have very much sharpened their utensils. Of course most of us aren't here to watch the commercials. Total travesty. I'm not hopeful. I wouldn't be surprised if the whole dog and pony show gets cancelled.

    I've mostly been watching softball, seems odd when there's a foul ball into the stands and the stands are empty. Otherwise as a TV viewer I don't miss the fans.

    Been some good games, the pitchers for the USA team are like machines! Canada Australia in 6 hours, should be good.

    Olympic winners, over time



    When the Summer Olympics debuted in 1896, 14 nations participated in the 42-competition event.

    Why it matters: Those numbers have risen steadily over time, with the U.S. dominating the Games as the Olympics expanded. Now, there are 339 events with 206 nations competing.


    • Wealthier countries with more resources have usually taken the most gold. The Soviet Union was the only rival that came close to the U.S. record in the latter part of the 20th century.
    • China has recently gained ground, a reflection of the country's rapid economic growth.


    Of note: The U.S. has placed in the top three in every Olympics except one, in 1980, when the U.S. boycotted the Olympics after the Soviets invaded Afghanistan.

    Just for fun.

    Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

    These women athletes, who perform in their bikinis, must feel like cattle.

    I for one, look at them like they are.

    They can just say......no

    They were fined and the country stood behind them and payed their fines.

    It's a silly rule, I think it may be challenged more.

    The shorts they chose were just as pleasing.

    I agree. Viewers with a limited intellect and short attention span will frequently arrive at similar conclusions.
