The Olympics 2008

Thought we would have a thread put up about the coming Olympics with under a month to go before the opening ceremony!

Predictions?

Hackett to get up again in the 1500m, our Divers to do pretty good and the men's basketball team to go pretty deep in the competition.

Bring it on, the greatest sporting weeks ever!

Can't wait!

The coverage by channel 7 is a disgrace. Play the first half of the Aussie basketball then switches over to ponces jumping silly little poles on horses. Make up your mind FFS and then reply the other. Watching sport on a 8cm computer window isn't the same.

And don't get me started on that stupid thing they play with the swimmers singing |@

Being from Perth and a failed swimmer myself, very upset about Sullivan not wining Gold.

Good luck for London Eamon, you can go one better @|

Never say never in the relay either.. @|

My favorite events are; Boxing, Swimming, Hockey, Gymnastics,and some others that I cannot recollect. I believe the 100m sprint is a non event.

I actually love to watch thenovelty sports like European Handball, table tennis, I even saw some archery the other day- and it was fascinating! :D

Seeing the sports you don't usually see is what I think the Olympics is all about.

That being said- judo looked like the most boring sport I've seen so far. Two women trying to grab each other jackets or trying to kick each other's legs for ten minutes didn't make for rivetting viewing! ;)

Handball is pretty good so is boxing.

Dressage would have to be the most boring. Don't even know how Judo is in the Olympics, boring as anything.
