Hopefully we get another medal today in rowing. Double sculls. Good chance even Gold perhaps but that final is probably the most competitive.

It's day six - time for misskarne's now-traditional whine...


Is the swimming over yet?! :lol:

Hockey on, but the TV just got hijacked to Star Trek.

No idea what's on later, I'll play the Channel 9 Olympic roulette...which will probably be swimming. :rolleyes:

Here's hoping Germany misses medals in dressage and hell breaks lose over the fed's heads. How they could have messed up such a strong discipline where Germany has not lost an Olympic Games since 1972 is beyond incompetent. Go NED/UK/USA!
