    What's going on? Will the USA hang on to the baton?

    It's either a very big ice rink, or there's a lake under there.

    David Boudia on nearly failing to make it to the next round in diving: "I know God is sovereign."

    Enjoyed the diving overall though!

    Did the Chinese withdraw midway through the diving prelims? Scoreboard says otherwise.

    I know it's been said millions of times, but I'll say it again- I don't get NBC's coverage choices. I would structure it completely differently. Rant over.

    Dream Team special - I still remember that very first game against Cuba in the Tournament of the Americas. I think it's the most exciting game of basketball I ever saw.

    NBC nearly lost me tonight with the basketball documentary at the beginning. I was too young to remember Barcelona, so I had no interest

    The baton exchanges in track relays always scare the crap out of me. It seems so easy to feck up.

    Do you ever notice some random athlete amongst the crowd and suddenly want to know more about them? The wrifer in me just thinks about how all these people have their own little story.

    I have read way too many historical/regency/victorian romances. I knew the order of nobility. Maybe I'm the Duke (duchess) of Earl.

    Some of the camera work on the track is really weird. It's like they pan back as far as they can and you can barely see the person who is in front. Good job for the US 4X400m team.

    You could be the reincarnation of Studs Terkel.

    Only 14 posts tonight? I guess everyone is over the Olympics already? lol The womens relay was amazing. Glad I watched it without having read the results.

    Too bad about falls. Made me look up Decker and Budd controversy. Packs are difficult.

    Those US relay ladies were amazing! As far as total dominance by a team, they are up there with US women's gymnastics and Misty and Kerri, IMO.

    I know it's not realistic but I always wish they would get up and keep running. I don't know how it would help but I keep thinking it would help emotionally, if nothing else.

    We seem to be missing some regular posters. I guess they are out for a Friday night. I have no social life. Thus, here I am.

    no, seen it all on BBC1 earlier

    anyway, i read 'it's relay time' and 'it's twilight time' (the song with that particular lyrics) started playing in my head... almost the end of the olympics.
