JohnBigBootay: I would looooove to see some tall, long-armed person master the technique of just plowing through the damn thing but still able to turn and put it back up there. That would be sweet.


There were a couple of vaulters in the late 80s, who didn't ever really seem to worry about getting over the bar cleanly, sometimes they'd bang the hell out of it and only clear the height because of steadying it with their hand. And actually they were the first to really use their hand to steady the cross bar.

Wooooooo!!!

I now know how far behind my stream is compared to my neighbours watching it on TV.
 
2012-08-06 04:08:28 PM  

ModernPrimitive01: dang NBC's live streaming is slow. you guys knew about the goal 3 minutes before they showed it


Probably just in case one of players takes their shirts off, and 50 million evangelicals head off on a campaign to have all NBC executives executed on live TV to atone for it.

/if you are 3 minutes behind: pay attention in the next minute.

Somebody kneecap her, please. Preferably only drawing a yellow doing it.

I have to say, one thing I've loved about watching soccer this Olympics is the commentators' liberal use of the word "dispossessed".

USA will score, they always do.
