Olympic Lowlights

August 20, 2008

Here is my take on the last few days of the Olympics.

Gymnastics – Callers flooded Sports Talk radio this week talking about Gymnastics.  Specifically the scoring.  These Tim Daggett fueled complaints are filling the airwaves and living rooms across America.  The problem is, I and the rest of America haven’t watched gymnastics in exactly 4 years, and yet everyone is acting like we are suddenly current on the International Gymnastics Code of Points.  I know nothing about it, so I can’t complain.  Congratulations ladies on your well deserved medals!

Usain Bolt – One word…UNBELIEVABLE!  Literally.  I hate to sound so cynical, but I doubt that his performance is chemically unaided.  The last man that separated himself like that in the 100M was Ben Johnson and his cheating was revealed before the Olympics were even over!  Don’t be surprised if he breaks the 200M world record as well.  He is destroying the field and doing so while jogging!

    Jamacia doesn’t test on its own though, so we might not find out. They should just allow doping instead of continually blacking the sport’s eye by enforcing a standard nobody upholds.

    Finally! Someone who will admit that they haven’t became an “Expert” on something they never watch! (at least in 4 years LOL) That’s the problem with some people, they think that they know everything about everything and they could do a REAL EXPERTS job better! Good call!
