Some of these jerkoffs need their ego smashed. Good for the soul.

I guess so. $40 million net worth is more then enough to retire.

Ironically I also found this little article about him.

While still quite young and able to continue competing, Michael Phelps has already broken 37 world swimming records. There are many who believe he hasnít even scratched the surface of his talent and that, when finally done, he will have broken many more records, some of which currently belong to him.

Re: The 2012 London Summer Olympics Thread

I'm having the hardest time keeping up with the Olympics. I watch everyday at 7pm EST and it seems like people already know what the results are. I can understand if you're overseas but do they air earlier than 7pm? I usually never have the TV on before Primetime TV starts.

Blame the internet, my friend. You can find the results online pretty much as soon as the event is finished, but I guess NBC is trying to wait to air the more popular events during prime time to keep up the ratings.

I don't think we'll hear any more talk about the 2012 basketball team being compared to the '92 team.

That was a great match, kept tying at 18-18 and 19-19 every time and was nerve-racking to watch if you are rooting for the USA to win.

My gripe...it was 55 degrees for beach volleyball in London...they had to wear sweaters. The aussies were covered head-to-toe and still wore their bikinis on top of their compression tops, looked stupid.

London was a terrible choice as host for this reason alone.

At least our ladies wore proper bottoms. Still looking great at age 34 too.

What?

Re: The 2012 London Summer Olympics Thread

F^ck the news and news sources for posting the results without warning or having to click to open them up. I have tried to avoid seeing the results for thing I want to watch at night but it getting very tough as the results are gtting posted as they happen.

Re: The 2012 London Summer Olympics Thread

Speaking of jerkoffs. What is it with dumb athletes?


Swiss soccer player kicked off Olympic team for discriminatory tweet | Fourth-Place Medal - Yahoo! Sports


You'd think most of the Olympic athletes would have learned from the other one that got kicked off the team for a dumb tweet.


It's simple. Keep it to thanking the fans and the experience or simply delete your twitter account. Morons.

Most events are over by 7:00 pm our time. I even was watching NBC news the other night and they gave away who won what right before they started airing the event. Pissed me off so much I didn't watch. They just need to give a warning or make you click a page before posting who won what so I can decide if I want to look.

Re: The 2012 London Summer Olympics Thread

Watched the 200m (mens) backstroke race tonight with Matt Grevers and Nick Thoman winning gold and silver respectively. Fantastic race with Thoman storming in at the end to claim the silver.

Missy Franklin's 100m backstroke race was also fantastic. Huge win by the 17 year old for her first gold medal.

Also, Michael Phelps looked good in the 200m breaststroke semi-final. He seemed to take it easy the first 150m, and then just blew by everybody the last 50m. Guy still has it...lol


Men's gymnastics fell off the wagon. Man that was horrible watching their performance tonight. Guy (Orozco) broke down after his failed vault. Had to be a horrible feeling.

Franklins win was sweet and it was hard to watch the mens gymnastics. I'm not sold on Phelps winning the 200m breaststroke.

Re: The 2012 London Summer Olympics Thread

Did anyone else see Britain and Ukraine robbed in the Men's gymnastics last night.

What a terrible decision. The guy falls of the horse without completing the required handstand so the judges bump up the difficulty after-the-fact to, essentially, compensate for the massive deduction. Bad. Just bad.

It's why I like sports with objective measurables (i.e. - Who ran the fastest? Who threw it the farthest?) as opposed to judges deciding who looked the prettiest.
