Re: Olympic Gold Fever USA

I think it is weird how so many athletes are competing for countries they were not born in. Like so and so was born in NY, but is running for the Dominican Republic or something… I guess they can choose based on where their parents were born or something.

90% of Greece's Baseball team

They break out the family tree and find what nationally they can prove a get a spot when they don't make the US team.

Some of the foreign cats do it too but they usually have a lil more to their stories

Re: Olympic Gold Fever USA

I love watching summer and winter olympics, but boy, have the judges botched this go-round! To me it's just a tragedy when judges admit they made a mistake, but an athlete has to pay for it. Think: Paul Hamm. And the judging of Alexei Nemov in the high bar was a travesty. I've never heard such a long sustained boo from an olympics crowd.

/threadjack/ Did anyone else read or hear about the Dave Matthews Band? Apparently they dumped 800 lbs. of liquid human race from their bus while crossing a bridge - which managed to land on about 100 people on an architecture tour in a boat below. /end threadjack/

I did hear about that, although I think you meant "human waste." That would be horrible!

I agree, except for that gorilla headed Paul Hamm. He should just be humble and give the damn medal to the rightful winner.
