I've done a back flop off a high dive and it hurts like hell. It also knocks the wind out of you and there is nothing worse then having you body trying to gasp for air when your in the water.

I gave up on Tapatalk a while back. It's crap.

It was on my cellphone a couple of days back, but I do remember the signal being very bad. Not sure why I just kicked in today

When Monkeydad, of all people, mocks you for a duplicate post...sigh

Watching this dive is brutal. Ouch.
The commentator on the dive was hilarious. "Looks a bit like the Isle of Mann"

Check out that flag if you haven't.

Huge win for Misty and Kerri to finish their career together in beach volleyball. Gold medal for the 3rd straight Olympics is a pretty amazing feat.





Incredible win by Allyson Felix in the women's 200m.

Love the MacKayla memes


The US women's relay team smoked the competition last night. Wasn't even remotely close and they broke a world record.





She was pointing at the sign before she even crossed. She knew it was going to be a WR.





NBC told to shut up.
