An arena for athletics. Post lifetime is 1 year.

Agreed. Thought I heard wrestling was dropped to make room for golf, but must have been mistaken.

At lease the IOC is pitching in with their 450,000 condoms for the athletes. Or 42 per competitor.

Lets dusk this bitch off. My thoughts on the Olympics so far are positive. Cool flame/artwork. Men's and women's road race were wildly entertaining. Gymnastics was good. I still hate synchronized diving. Synchronized anything really

This was in the Ancient Olympic games and the modern games until like 1920.
I do agree though that some of these sports need to go.

Great to see Keri Walsh is still so dominant at volleyball, but I'm sure Misty May is just a little envious and wishes she was there playing just a little bit.

Go Phelps!!

That was fun. She followed up by talking about winning the gold without doping. WTF is will all the cupping? It looks like people had giant leaches sucking on them

Not much fudge talking you can really do in swimming, but she talked some fudge, and backed it up, was awesome.

NZ men’s rugby lost to GBritain yesterday, the country is bereft(ish). On the bright side a senior mgmt dude in the office from the UK is calling every other senior manager and innocently asking if they know the score. We are amused.
