2008 Beijing Olympics
« on: August 17, 2008, 08:44:25 am »
Is anybody watching them? I watched the football for a bit but Australia lost every match (I think) and now they're knocked out. For half a country, South Korea are really wiping the floor with everyone else.
Being Australian is about driving in a German car to an Irish pub for a Belgian beer, and then travelling home, grabbing an Indian curry or a Turkish kebab on the way, to sit on Swedish furniture and watch American shows on a Japanese TV.

I only have interest in fighting and the female gymnastics.

So you don't watch the Football or Swimming?

Nope.
Swimming is for fish and what most people call football...nobody ever gets a broken back or neck. Real football is not played with a round ball.

Oh and what is "real" football. I hope you don't call Grid Iron "real" football because last time I checked, the amount of protective padding they wore covered pretty much their whole body.

btw z you see the boxing .. ?

Boxing ranks among the Olympic Games' most illustrious sports.

When it first arrived in the Ancient Olympic Games, the tools of the trade were long strips of leather wrapped around boxers' fists. The fight continued until one man or the other went down or conceded. The Romans followed with a gladiator dimension. They used gloves studded with spikes or weighted with lead, and fights often ended in death, like other entertainment of the day.

When the modern Games resumed in 1896, the Athens organising committee omitted boxing, deciding it was too dangerous. The sport reappeared in 1904 in St. Louis, thanks to its popularity in the United States, then disappeared again in 1912 at Stockholm because Sweden's national law banned it.

Only in 1920 did boxing return to the Olympic Games to stay. Hence, Muhammad Ali (Cassius Clay at the time) and Teofilo Stevenson (a three-time gold medallist) could join names like Theagenes of Thassos and Cleitomachus of Thebes among the legends.

My/our football started here, that's the beauty of being a lone continent. It's oval shaped of course, has the same -basic- concept of Grid Iron but has half the amount of padding.

If you want to see some damn bloody and brutal old games take a look at old black-and-white football film from just after the end of WW2...those guys would STOMP you in the face with steel cleats and try to kill you. Classic example of Post Stress Syndrome.

Hah! And a spare arm would come in handy.
