    A question for the English

    When Australia & U.S.A. are fighting it out in the pool in a couple of months who will the English prefer to win?

    As much as I don't like seeing the English win anything, it is a dam sight better seeing the Poms get up against those Yanks!

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    American's for me. If one of theirs doesn't qualify, pressure isn't applied to allow him to compete.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Well when your offered $60,000 and a job when he retires it is very hard to not give up his spot.

    Exactly what I mean by pressure.

    That incident goes directly against the whole idea of the Olympics.

    It's supposed to be about the taking part (the Eric the Eel-tpye competitor)

    Pity the Eric the Eel-tpye competitor can't get into the olympics anymore, with the new rules (don't ask me what they are...??)

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.

    No, because we'd all then select that option.

    The idea is to force us to make a choice between Uncle Sam and the Convicts!

    USA USA USA!!!

    If they win a lot, it will probably go over the 256 million strong population's heads as they tuck into their burgers and sissy rugby... However Australia will probably give a toss....

    I loved it the other day when Geoffrey Boycott used the phrase 'couldn't give a toss' when he was talking about Darren Lehmann playing for Yorkshire. It sounded so out of place. Richie Benaud didn't know what to say.

    I like Australia competing except when it is against England or in cricket. But I have to admit, if Australia don't do so well in swimming then we might pip them in the table (even with our shocking Olympic team )

    Gotta say Australia. The few Aussies I've talked to seem sound
