The Olympics ?

Is anyone getting into the summer Olympics in Beijing later this year?  THere is a whole (new) forum about it here:  Summer Olympics Forum.

But that forum doesnt have a lot of people, and I havn't seen any posts about the Olympics here at TheGuG - has everyone lost interest in The Summer Games?

yea, pretty much not interested. the only thing i've heard or read has convinced me to stay as far away from the far east as possible.

I saw the male and female gynamastics qualifications a couple of weeks ago.  We have some good ones.  I hope the actual Olympic coverage is as well covered as the qulifications were. 

The Olympics started sucking for me when they stopped focusing on the events and felt the need to make a personal story out of damn near everything.  If an athlete didn't have a personal obstacle, by gosh the media would dig and find something.

Believe it or not, they used to show events, from beginning to end - even on tape delay. In real time like you were really there in the stadium.  Now they flip back and forth between several events, making it hard stay interested and to top that off, they have to mix in lots of personal-crisis stories for the Jerry Springer crowd who are not interested in the sports but still want to see the Olpmpics.

Sh*t!  It's sports!  Show us sports!  I don't care about Mary Lou Retton's grandmother's goiter surgery!

And when mountain biking became a medal event, I knew they would f**k it up and they did not dissappoint.

To cut down on traffic and smog, they are telling drivers in Bejiing which days to drive based on whether their tag number is odd or even.

And don't hang your meat out of the window!

husband travels there often. the air quality is like death. here is a photograph and article from today and the funny part is, they are manufacturing large murals & billboards as backdrops so no one will see the poor air quality there.

Wow, so they're trying to cover toxic air with...paint?  I don't think it's going to work.

Re: The Olympics ?

oh, nice. just what you want to see after paying $2,000 for airfare and a board on wheels bed in a hotel while attending the olympics. by suggestion - buy a 1-way ticket and save yourself the money. you may not be returning!

Re: The Olympics ?

I am totally excited about the olympics! OMG did anyone see the Mens 400m swimming relay race last nite??  USA team rocked out, and beat the Frenchies WOOOO HOOOO !  After what they had said which was, "We are going to smash the Americans, thats what we came here for", I was seething.  I watched the race last night and I was nearly sick with excitement.  It was the most exciting swimming race I ever watched, and the best part was, besides watching our team dwell in their victory, and besides that they made a new world record, was the face on the French, they were totally sick.  The ate S**T last night !!!!  GO USA!!

What goes around comes around..don't forget it!
