    Well, I personally don't care a real lot about the Olympics myself but I figured there'd be a few people who may be interested in discussing some of the events or politics or smog or whatever, so here - for anyone who actually gives a damn, have a damn thread! :)

    hehehehehe. Hackett just finished 6th in the 400m freestyle :(

    and the Olyroos...its a longshot but if they tighten up there defense they can come away with a point.

    Is anyone really surprised by Hackett's performance though? I wouldn't be shocked if he gets knocked over in the 1500 as well

    Nice job by Stephanie.

    Hackett isn't a 400m swimmer though; the 1500 is what he does best.

    Is the opening ceremony likely to be replayed at all? I was too busy getting tanked at the pub to see it.

    Mate you missed out on something special...if you can only see one part of it make it the beginning with the drums. The precision involved to pull something like that off is staggering, esp considering they had no backing tape to keep in time with.

    Fuck me Im running on 3hrs sleep and I just found out that the Olyroos, the Boomers and the hockyroos are all in action tonight! GO AUSSIE!!!

    That is basically the definition of Chinas communism; they all had earpieces though. It was basically a 'watch how robotic we can be' display. :D

    What pisses me off...Just now they had an ad during Australia - Argentina and they come back and all you here is "What a magnificent save from the keeper" and I am sitting there going WTF just happend?

    This is football, tension is always being built you can't just stop it mid way!

    7 isn't showing the basketball it isn't in the program list and SBS isn't showing it either. I got to find a live stream from Croatia then.

    EDIT: Scratch that, 7 just said they are showing the basketball...YAY!!! Here's hoping Croatia win, would be a great day.:p A win in the water polo and handball so far.

    I've seen a whole bunch of torrents running where you can download it. It shouldn't be hard to find.

    Great swim by Trickett in the 100m butterfly. And it's always fantastic to see two aussies on the podium for one race!

    Did anyone watch the Volleyball on SBS? China and Poland play a great match with China winning...some of those Polish players are VERY easy on the eye.

    Good to see the Opals comfortably smashing Brazil.

    For me SBS' coverage is blowing 7's to bits

    Yeah. I wanted to watch the hockey, but the idiots kept crossing back to swimming heats and that Hungarian has-been in the judo.
