    I hope the sport is good for the athletes and viewers.
    It hasn't been too good a start though with......
    a "needle" issue already

    Australia losing two athletes....one to a "coward" punch and the other to a spinal issue

    The Printed programme listing England as part of Africa ( couldn't be a Labor problem as the Fed Deputy thinks Africa is a country on its own)
    Not sure about swimming with surfboards on sand but the Opening and closing entertainment is becoming more important than the "games" these days which is why they cost so much both Comm and Olympic.

    One thing I am curious about is the newly minted Nrl commissioner isn't doing his job but is off soaking up the largesse at the Games.

    Good to see some bloke no one has heard of in the Triathlon come home and get the Silver. The race was all about the English brothers according to Channel 7.

    What a swim!

    I loved some of that racing!

    You'll have to put it on record tomorrow bro and watch the swimming after the Bunnies play! We may need it to cheer us up a bit!

    I'm working tomorrow night so I will record our match and the swimming!

    Damn those bloody Poms...

    I loved it when Horton and Oloughlin caught that James Guy bloke!

    I didn't watch much cycling apart from when we beat the kiwis.... I flicked over the footy mostly when the cycling was on!

    It was mixed day for the Aussies.
    15 medals in the bag but the Poms still have more:banghead:

    The cycling was for the most part pretty good even if the boys had a stuff up and got a re start.

    Women's triathalon the aussie girls were far from competitive on the day
    .
    Hurdler Sally "succumbed" to her Achilles injury although she would have known a week ago she couldn't run with it but did get to experience all the media attention in the build up and carried the "baton".

    I hope channel7 never gets the broadcast rights to NRL as they were all over the shop with their broadcast chopping and changing sport between 7 and 7 two. I was watching the hockeyroos leading Canada by one goal on 7 two with a minute to go with Canada on the attack and they cut the game saying see the finish on 7 which had the pummel horse competition:mad:

    Australia is kicking butt on the medal tally with 14 gold. England is second best with 9 gold.
