A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

The Olympics: I'm generally cool to the Olympics as they have been presented by NBC for the past couple decades. It's a sporting event -- cover it like one.

Setting that complaint aside, I'm watching synchronized diving. Why? There's no underwater basketweaving on. I'm of the opinion that synchronized anything isn't a sport. Heck, I thought curling was more interesting this.

Anyway, what interested me enough to even write this much about it? A statement made by the color commentators:


The Chinese take synchronized diving very seriously.


I think I'll stick to watching the Iraqi soccer team.

Comments:
The Olympics were designed for TiVo. Allows you to FF through all the crap and backstory to see actual competition.
 
I agree with watching Iraq. Most Olympics spports are boring. At least now they have beach vaollyball and aother interesting sports.
 
Hey, the Iraqi soccer team rocks! They crushed Portugal who just came in second in the 2004 European Championship. They also beat Costa Rica, a very good central american team.

They aren't the full national squad, but who cares.

I would also like to note, when the Iraqi team goes home this year, they wont be tortured. Hooray, and good luck to them in the quarter finals.
