    It may have been exciting if they didn't show the entire match. I would have had no problem if they'd chucked in some of the diving etc. as well, but to show 3 and a half hours of the 1 sport, without so much as an update, is atrocious.

    Didn't concentrate too much, but from what I gathered the race was really slow (a Swiss guy with 13:25 tried to up the pace and ran 100 meters ahead) then the Africans just ran away from him on the final lap. Finished 2 seconds short of last qualifying place.

    Finally got to see it. Gutted, just played into the hands of the blokes who're fast over the final lap.

    Ta. The Swiss commentators got vaguely excited and he was wearing red, I just assumed he was leading.

    WOOO GOOO USA!

    I just wished they showed highlights of the basketball games here in the states, so I could see how sweet is the american victory. They are killing opponents by an average of 25 points!

    Yeah listen, to those moaning about us competing as UK. Have read plenty of posts from Aussies on this board claiming that England isn't a country, so make your bloody minds up. Oh, and there are Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish MPs who help decide how my taxes get spent, so I think it's fair to say that yes, they are the same country. It's not like if the EU competed as an entity.

    In any case, would only have meant GB would have nine track cyclists instead of three. Hardly a beneficial state of affairs.

    End of that second quarter was l4m3.
    Have to agree with Patrick. Was dying to see the Boomers, but got really taken by the softball. Bit of a dog thing to say nobody cares.

    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 *********!

    Boomers didn't git the rub of the green last night, which they needed to beat the US. Still they played very well and I think the score flattered the US.
