Anyone watching the Summer Olympics? I have to say I have been hooked! I used to swim competitvely so Michael Phelps has been more then a joy to watch. I still can`t belive he touched first on that butterfly final. I also love the volleyball especially the womens beach volleyball. Gymnastics, Diving and basketball have had me up very late this last week.

I also enjoy watching other countries, the best the world has to offer. Yes there has been alot of controversy with scores, touch pads, lip syncing, store fronts and pollution but these games have gotten to me and I was wondering who else was enjoing watching them.

I could not believe Phelps won that butterfly event either. The slow motion replay shows it almost to be a tie but I guess Phelps activated the sensor faster (or harder)

LMAO They call it football when its not even a ball because a ball is round not shaped like a ruptured spleen ..They think American football is tough when they wear ALL that padding lol...Real football is a mans game and the ball is a ball (Sphericle) (round) and the only protection worn is Shin pads ..Sorry I shouldnt be saying all this because I'm half American on my Dads side but I just can't stand the game or the woosies that play it .The game of baseball or NHL however are terrific games that came from America (Didn't they) I bet some European will tell us that baseball is based on an old European game called "Rounders" and hockey came from some other country not America ..Back to the subject in hand the greatest "Football" team in the world today is Chelsea F.C. ,Just watch this season, that by the way America has just started ..Football is played from now until next May that is all the way through the winter in all weathers ..Sorry if this upsets anybody
Peace

I respectfully disagree with you John_Vee. Yes they have pads but they also actually hit each other. They use one of the greatest gifts giving to mankind, our hands and no one does a silly split hopeing to hit the ball but avoid contacting the player. I used to play SOCCER as a kid but grew out of it as many Americans do. FOOTBALL is a strategic game that I very much enjoy. pale

SunnyP I agree but its not the fault of the amazing athelits around the world and the world records that have been broken are unbelivable.
