    Its Ironic

    So today I watched Shooting. Both Air Gun & Skeet. I thought it was ironic that there were no Americans in Air Gun & only one in Skeet. Americans LOVE guns. They obsess over them. There's the NRA (Nat'l Rifle Association) that lobbies the gov't to keep it free and legal with no...

    It's been almost a year since the Olympics in Vancouver...where has the year gone??? Being Canadian, you can imagine the pride I felt those two weeks, not only for the performances of the athletes, but also for the wonderful show staged by the organizing committee. It wasn't...

    I Find The Olympics So Inspiring.

    I loved everything about this summer's 2012 London Olympics. I loved the opening ceremony. The most memorable was when Queen Elizabeth was escorted by James Bond (Daniel Craig) and how she appeared to jump out of the helicopter. I love see the athletes being herald in with their...

    Good Show, Canada

    Pretty good Olympics. Enjoyed the medal ceremony music especially, more than in other Olympics. (I believe each Olympics has its own.) The performances of "Oh Canada" in the closing ceremony actually had me humming it afterward. Boy, Neil Young has lived a long time for a...

    Not So Much This Year

      I leave the TV turned on to the Olympics when I'm home but I just can't get into it this year.  The athletes are incredible.  I'm amazed at their performances.  Especially the gymnasts.  They can do super human things.  But it hasn't sucked me in yet.    I heard Mary...

    I really love to watch diving. Especially 10m tower. Did you see yesterday's Men's 10m tower? It was amazing. And Matthew Mitcham really deserved the gold medal, he really did. If there was a youtube video I could put a link up here, but I'm afraid there is none. Hopefully it is...

    From Another Country.

    In 2004 I had a special opportunity.  I was in Ireland for 6 weeks.  I watched the Summer Olympics from there.  It was interesting seeing the events with commentary from a different country.  I enjoyed the experience.

    One of the British Para Olympians....had this to say when his cycle did not deliver... "you can only **** with the c_ock you've got". I thought this was hilarious. This was live on TV and then again after the Olympic commentaries there is the "After Hour" program run by Adam...

    Michael Phelps

      Michael Phelps just became the most medalled Olympian in history. He's an amazing swimmer. Gee, it makes me wonder what I've accomplished at almost twice his age.
