    Ha, that Nike commerical is hilarious.

    Yes - it was excellent. However, Hamm was definitely overscored on that disastrous vault. 9.1-something after crashing into the judge's table? Puh-lease. :rolleyes Normally that should earn a high 8, once deductions for the fall, the going out of the bounds, not to mention the bad form have been taken into account.

    Also, I am very happy that Natalie Coughlin got her second gold. She seems like such a sweetie!

    The one I saw was the guy racing to the concert hall to perform after waking up late.

    chris, Canada still has a number of gold medal contenders like Perdita Felicien, Alexandre Despatie, Nicolas Gill and the rowing teams.

    If the bar is lower it can't be parallel at the same time Paulie

    I couldn't believe that Paul Hamm fell, and I mean really fell, on the vault. But Wow! What a comeback! He had an amazing parallel bar routine, and I don't care what anyone says, but his High Bar routine was absolutely spectacular!

    He didn't give up, and gave it all he had after that disastrous fall. Luck was on his side, though, when some of the frontrunners also had problems in their routines.

    Way to go, Paul, on the first-ever U.S. All-Around Gold in Men Gymanstics!

    Dont worry Canada, you won the Olympics that counts
    The Beer Olympics!!
    It was replayed here on Sunday up against the Athens Olympics on Cable Comedy network Canada were the overall winners chugging beer better than anyone else. Lucky there were no representatives from Australia.

    The shot put was great to watch at the Ancient Stadium. Our guy came 8th and thats the best we have ever done which is great.
    Our girls came 13th in the Gymnastics which is also the best we have ever done.

    Watching Paul Hamm land that to win the All Around gold medal, I expected him to say, "Jackpot!" (Joe Schmo 2-Tim Walsh)
