Summer Olympics 2012


Wales2004

Recommended Posts

Damn, anybody else watch Woman's Beach Volleyball? This is one the most exciting, intense sport of the Summer Olympics and sport I was looking forward to most. Those Aussie's are giving Misty-May and Kerri Walsh a run for their money. Watching Misty-May and Kerri Walsh play is almost better than sex and I'm a gay dude. laugh.png

LOL I didn't watch any today but I prefer indoor Volleyball - watched today's US Women's watch. They have a player named Destiny Hooker! laugh.png Glad to see Logan Tom :wub: still on the team.

I watched indoor volleyball as well. Yeah I can't believe her mom gave her the name Destiny Hooker, but she's a damn good volleyball player though.

Loved the opening ceremony. My favourite part was the James Bond/Queen part and the tribute to the music.

Was surprised that we didn't have any ad's on here since it was on commercial TV.

Loved how the Claudron was lit. I was thinking that it would have been either Coe or Banninster that would have lit it.

Was shocked by Phelps swim though just making it into the 400 IM. It reminded me of Kieran Perkins who only scrapped into the 1500 back in 1996.

Was pleasantly surprised by the men's gymnastic team. I just didn't expect them to fair quite as well on their first day. I'll be interested to watch the women tonight.

I did enjoy watching the men's archery team yesterday as well. :)

I liked the opening ceremonies. I didn't like NBCs coverage. I think it's unfair to compare it to 2008. Not all of it was perfect but so be it. To me nothing compares to Muhammad Ali lighting the Olympic torch in Atlanta or the flags of participating countries in 1984 done by the audiences seat cards. Myself I watch for the parade of nations anyway.

NBC should be embarrassed by Ryan Seacrest.

NBC's coverage is an embarrassment so far they should of been airing things live this weekend that were major events (like the swimming finals) since it was on during the afternoon here but they choose to save it for prime time coverage though they tweet and put it on the nbcolympics.com site.

Why are the female gymnasts wearing purple?? Shouldnt they be wearing blue or red...American colors...the whole puruple is a WTF

I think the color is royal blue but I can see how it could pass for purple particularly with that star pattern on them.

Off topic, once upon a time I used to like Bob Costas.

Its called ratings. They could easily show it live during the day but save it for tv ratings which were through the roof the first night and the swimming finals.

    • This whole Sonny and Leo story is an example of something where I think the idea was great, but the execution of it poor.  I could totally get into Sonny coming back to town and seeking revenge on Leo for what he did years ago. I was fine with the idea of Sonny being obsessed about it to the point it might start harming his marriage, but one the first major mistakes was when it came down to blowing apart Leo and Craig, they had Sonny go MIA and it was Chad that showed up at the wedding. Should have been Sonny.  Then the current phase, Leo making an enemies list and seeing counter revenge, once again, sounds like a good idea that I'd be interested in seeing, but his revenge against Sonny was both problematic and stupid.  First, while I'm fairly certain no sex actually took place, drugging someone, stripping them naked, then sending pictures to a gossip site, is both assault and revenge porn. Unless you are going to treat it as such and write it in a serious way, those kinds of plots need to be left in the past. They aren't acceptable in 2022.  It's also dumb. What's Leo's aim? Sonny already figured out he was drugged, which I'm sure he'll tell Will, so Will is likely to only believe Leo's story in the Intruder for maybe all of 5 minutes. There's a million other better or interesting things they could have had Leo to do Sonny.   
    • Ray Liotta, RIP, They Started on Soaps                 @RealKevinConroy   Starting out in NY in 1981 I was on Another World with Ray for a year. I was 25 playing a 25 yr old detective. He was 26 playing a teenager! He was totally believable. Gone too soon RIP Ray Liotta.
    • I still have that  entire week on useless videotape, starring: Anna Stuart finally back from Hollywood! Derek Dane as the strong man! The House Of Mirrors! And Felicia, sporting the world's  worst hair extensions!
    • Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern of New Zealand, interviewed on Steven Colbert's show.   Interview in three parts. Watch all three parts all the way through.  It is so refreshing to see a sane government.  She talks about gun control, Covid, Ukraine, sustainability, etc.    
    • Gosh, that sweet baby boy...all of the episodes surrounding the shooting have been heavy on my mind this week for obvious reasons. Shortly after Parkland, we were given some bullsh!t reactionary directives to "incorporate active shooter safety into lessons," and I just so happened to be teaching a mini-unit on Canadian history so...we might have watched both parts of "Time Stands Still" in my classes that week, complete with us breaking apart all that was wrong with Degrassi's "lockdown," including kids being locked in classrooms while other people just went in and out of the building. Sean and Ellie really were my preferred coupling. Separately, their stories were a bit more mature, then they ended up sharing an apartment as that *whispers* high school couple that lives together. Emma kinda went off the rails for a while, and I always thought she'd be better served ending up with someone who didn't go to Degrassi so that she didn't have to live up to the high standards of the righteous "cause girl" she'd been. I'm ready to start skimming through some episodes to pick up on other regular background music lol There's one little piano piece that would always play at the end of emotionally-charged scenes right before a commercial or freeze frame. It low-key sounds like the hook from Summer Breeze. It looks like they've removed most episodes from YouTube, so I can't find it.
