Incorrect. Most Americans are not this dumb, we just don’t really give a fuck about the Olympics or what the rest of you think. Ms Anne what are you talking about. The USA is second by 1 medal in overall standings at this moment.How does this correlate into not training athletes?
One gets used to it after a while. I’m having a difficult time trying to figure out how the sport of trampoline made it into the Olympics. It’s like people are searching for a sport we Americans can win.
Kristen Armstrong and Brian Wiggins were pretty awesome in the TT, and the showdown between Vinokourov and Uran in the road cycling was really good. I also like the idea of independent Olympic athletes. Hopefully, we see a lot more of those in the future.
Franky, Bacchante – Love you ladies! And thanks for throwing me back in, Bacchante; turns out I found my way home by illegally swimming back across the border! Yay!
For the record, women’s gymnastics typically dominates. It’s a misnomer to think that China wins it all the time (or Russia). But whatever.
Also, the highest majority of Olympic-caliber athletes in the US are trained privately, not by the damn government. That’s in other countries, like with socialized medicine or something… they have socialized Olympic athlete training, too. Look it up, I saw it on Fuckapedia.
Hell, funny enough, they have to pay taxes on their Goddamn medals! Not that we’re the only country that does that.
But hey, I guess we need to pay for our baby-killing and nation-conquering somehow!
I do enjoy the cycling races, especially the outdoor ones, but I could care less about the countries. I have my favorite riders, and most of them are not riding for the US. Also, like just about any straight man, I enjoy watching women’s beach volleyball.
