    I think I have found out every result either by accident or on purpose before I have seen it on tv. For the rest of the Olympics I will have to either not talk to anyone or not watch any tv (except for Olympic coverage) or not go online. The time difference is not a good thing :-)

    And for some weird reason I am cheering for the Russian mens gymnastics team today, perhaps that Alexei Nemov has something to do with it, ever since the Atlanta Olympics I have been

    I too am completly for Alexei Nemov. I didn't even know he was competing again (wasn't he part of the Ukrainian team before or am I just confused? :rolleyes ). When I read your post I looked over at the TV (which was showing men's gymnastics but I wasn't really watching) and there he was He didn't receive a good score though, hope he does better as the competition goes on

    What channel had men's gymnastics?! It seems like I can't watch it on tv until tonight either on NBC or CBC.

    It was on SRC, the French version of CBC. Just like CBC they usually show everything live. They show a lot less gymnastics than NBC does though, so I can only catch glimpse of it. I will watch it again tonight on NBC so I can have another look at my cutie pie Alexei Nemov

    My TV has picture in picture. On the main screen I watch CBC and the smaller screen has SRC (or vice versa). Obsessed with the Olympics? You betcha.

    yeah they changed the age limit for the 2000 Games. technically you can be as young as 15 now, as long as you turn 16 before January 1, 2005. Go Carly! Go Mo! Go USA!
    all that shimmers in this world is sure to fade

    Same here. Love that CBC actually shows stuff live. And I get a kick out of the swimming announcer..he really gets excited.

    I watched the Men's 200m Freestlyle Swimming with bated breath. It was too good a competition to miss.
