That soccer game was heartbreaking to watch. I'm a soccer referee and to let a team influence your decisions like that is pretty bad. I'm somewhat biased being Canadian but the call against the goalie is complete bullshit, imo. Especially with no warning.
I do think it's pretty cool though that a women's soccer game is the second most watched Olympic event though

Victoria Pendleton - what a whinging cow!
To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.
omg, I hope Matthias Steiner (German weightlifter who dropped 432 pounds on his neck) is okay. I can't believe he walked away from that.
Also, this is late, but a hearty congrats to the British athletes and their supporters for an amazing performance in these games, especially in the last several days. and those Brownlee bros were awesome! glad the home crowd has something to cheer about

I am also very impressed with Chris Mears, who almost died of a ruptured spleen in 2009. His last dive was beautiful, and I am so happy he could have that moment at home.
Congrats to Ilya Zakharov, Kai Qin, and Chong He on their medals and some gorgeous diving! a very memorable event!
Alistair Brownlee is really hot.

Speaking of players from the two teams from last night saying things publicly...
I do believe Hope Solo's delusional. Why? She's quoted today as saying that Team USA made Christine Sinclair look good last night.
Oh Simon...Just gutted for him. I hope all that's wrong w/his collar bone is a bad bruise, because he hit *hard* when he went down. What a beyond horrible way for him to end his Olympic career.
And I would politely point out that your racist posts are getting tiresome.
Personally I wasn't too disappointed VP lost as she is a very self centered perosn - and not in a good athletic focused manner!! Trust me british cycling will not miss her - we already have several young ladies ready to take up the mantle - including Jess Varnish who VP lost a possible medal for with her illegal change over!!
