I wonder if any North Koreans will defect while in London.

Well I thought the ceremony was great. All I've been hearing is how Beijing was better. I didn't watch Beijing but I thought this one was very impressive and creative.

p.s. I guess Ralph Lauren won't be asked to create team USA's entrance clothes anymore after that "made in China" gaffe.

Romney did the same thing in Utah. I agree with you. I thought the ceremonies were also impressive. I was hating the fact I wasn't there to see it myself. I thought they did a great job representing their history and culture, even though I was shocked not to see/hear the Spice Girls...lol




Also, I'm sick and tired of hearing whiny ass Americans crying about how "lame" the opening ceremonies were. News flash assholes: The games were to honor the heritage and culture of the United Kingdom, not to appease egocentric Americans who somehow think the world should revolve around them. When we host the Olympics again in the United States, than they can cater to us. This night was more for the Brits than anybody else.

2012 Summer Olympics -- Michael Phelps is slowest qualifier in heats for 400m IM - ESPN

Kind of makes you wonder about his work ethic the past four years seeing how he's did in the qualifier and looking back on on some of the shots his teammates took at him.

Hopefully he'll get it together.



Serena making it to the second round. Wimbledon courts are the perfect spot for her to capture a gold.

He's admitted he had trouble staying motivated. I mean he basically didn't train in 09-10

Which is why his teammate curb stomped him today in the 400 individual medley.

This is what half ass training and living the limelight will do to you. He should have just retired if he was going to train and prepare for the Olympics in that sort of fashion.



Watching women's beach volleyball right now. These two girls(mitsti/kerri) have never lost a match in the Olympics yet. Amazing. That was a hell of a game with the Aussies.

Yep. It sounds like once he reached the peak back in '08, he basically stopped working hard and started enjoying the spotlight more. If that's the case he should've just retired, because now I get the feeling the rest of the games is going to be embarrassing for him, seeing as how he hasn't trained as hard as he used to.
