It's looking like another busy day. That's fine, it's not like I have any work to do or anything.

The Olympics is killing my productivity.
 
2012-08-03 10:22:10 AM
Oh yeah, trampoline. That was a Jeopardy question a couple weeks ago. "What event was introduced in 2000 Olympics" or something.
I'm interested to see what sort of merit it would have. I regard every event depending on opinion (judging) as flawed, but it could be neat to see once.
 
2012-08-03 10:23:31 AM
I didn't even know about trampoline. Presumably it's just gymnastics but at a higher altitude.

Ah, judo. I still don't understand you.
 
2012-08-03 10:24:51 AM
I'll watch just about any event, but trampoline is a bridge too far.

Federer and Del Potro are playing a kickass match right now - 8/7 in the third set.

Heavyweight women in Judo right now...

yikes.

I think we should bring back full-contact javelin. And the MC Hammer toss.

Could be worse. Could be sumo.

I'm watching this on Gold Zone online. The best part is that this match is epic and the announcer sounds like a sleepy old man.

Waaaammmbachhhhh! (about 30 minutes late, but there wasn't a thread at the time).

The trampoline guy from Belarus has maybe the best mustache of anyone in these Olympic games.

I'm not sure who to root for. I like Federer, but he's Swiss. I hate these filthy neutrals. With enemies you know where they stand but with neutrals, who knows? It sickens me

"Alex Morgan -- what a nuisance she is!"

Best play-maker in women's soccer.

United States are leading 1-0 against New Zealand after 50 mins in soccer quarterfinals.
 
2012-08-03 10:39:30 AM
Federer finally broke serve. Serving up 10-9.
 
2012-08-03 10:40:21 AM
There's diving today. No medals though.

Team fencing would be a lot more exciting if they got in a big circle and all went at the same time.
 
2012-08-03 10:40:50 AM
I'm sure it's incredibly hard and all, but dressage really is silly.

Also if they had to swing on chandeliers and fight up spiral staircases, à la Errol Flynn.

I for one echo the call made earlier this week for Olympic broadsword.

I hereby propose another event: Olympic mass melee.

120kg. 20kg more than me, and I'm a chunky bloke who is 6'1" high.

Now you're talking. Also, replace dressage with jousting. That is an equestrian event I'd like to watch.

We'd just enter the Scots. Not even train them, just round up a batch at Glasgow Central.

Dressage is the most worthless Olympic event I can possibly imagine. Even jumping - where the athletes are the horses, not the humans - is more worthy of being in the Olympics, and I'd toss that one out in favor of virtually anything else.

How did a question free sports headline get greenlit? Are the admins already drunk? Which athlete will become a meme today? It's your daily olympic thread...

Del Potro breaks right back. 10-10.

Never getting me on a trampoline again. I like being not a giant splat.
 
2012-08-03 10:49:18 AM
By the way: no Americans in the trampoline final but they're still holding it over for primetime because they figured an American might have been a medal contender before he became one of the wrecked shiats and JESUS AGAIN CRIPES DENMARK.

You're telling me! I am working from home trying to edit a manuscript with TV on in front of me. Trampoline > manuscript

Maybe a freestyle event, where you can choose between broadsword, morning star and poleaxe.

Are you familiar with "Full Metal Jousting?"

I'm an inch shorter and she's almost twice my weight. Maybe if you combined her and me, you'd get two normal-sized humans.

Aaaannnd, Canadian missed the trampoline routine. Damn, will have to wait until shotput this afternoon for a medal hope, I guess

Guaranteed gold right there. Let's split it up into lots of slightly different events so that Team GB can spank it the way Team USA does the swimming.

Canadian missed the trampoline routine. American missed the trampoline altogether.

kinda unfortunate that all four Anglo teams in women's soccer are on the same side of the bracket

Dude from Brazil fighting now is 6'8" / 342 lbs.

Guy from Korea is 6'3" / 280 lbs, and he's holding his own.

And there is a man named 'Dong Dong' who now has one more Olympic gold medal than you do.
 
2012-08-03 11:00:02 AM
The Gold Zone channel cut away from Federer - Del Potro to show Dong Dong.

stretchers out in womens soccer.

Archery is hard. Archery with lots of swirling wind is harder.
