Re: 2016 Little League World Series

How's Iowa doing? Gave up 11 runs in the extra inning last night and lost. On the bright side, I actually got to see the Iowa state flag as they have the state (or national) flags of the two teams playing hoisted on flagpoles in the outfield. Saw the last couple of innings of that game (turned it o...

Re: Olympics!!!!!!

They pretty much sucked... as summer ones usually do. A couple viewing notes: I had 4-6 channels of coverage every day. I would say that on average, one out of the 4-6 at any given time had an accurate description on the channel guide of what was actually airing. It would say volleyball and it woul...

Re: Olympics!!!!!!

Rio pulled it off like Sochi before it and others. Was it worth the cost that Brazil needed to spend to get ready for the Olympics and what are they going to do with everything that was built for a 2 week or so event is another story?

Good job Rupp getting the Bronze but I hate the lame "O" thing he did in the end. I get what it's for but stuff like that is why people hate those guys. Great job by Ward finishing in 6th - nobody would have bet money that he would have been near there. Helped to make sure that the US was ...

The South African men are doing well in the women's track and field events too! I saw that. My comment to my wife was that "she" looked like an outside linebacker for the Dallas Cowboys. Yeah. Pretty sure "she" is XXY. Rumor is each of the top 3 may be intersex. Really unfair to...

Re: Olympics!!!!!!

USWNT chokes against Sweden losing in Penalties. Game they dominated possession and shots but could only put 1 goal in the net (and only 5 of 24 shots were on goal). Leaving it to PKs is dangerous and they lost in the quarters because of it.

Women's 10,000 meters just finished and was won in a World Record of 29:17 by an Ethiopian breaking the former WR of 29:31. That is an average of roughly 1:10.25 per lap around the track or a little over a 4:41 mile for about 6.25 miles. Former record was by a Chinese women from when the Chinese wer...

Re: Olympics!!!!!!

But just because freestyle is the fastest way to swim does not mean that it is wrong to see who is the fastest at other common ways to swim - butter, back and breast. You may not like it but nobody really cares.

Re: Olympics!!!!!!

I know there are a lot of silly sports in the Olympics, but I've had it with swimming. Do we really need 73 different events ? Why not have a backwards 200m in track? Or a 400 where you have to hop on both feet? Why not? Because it would be stupid to have a race where you are forced to do a motion ...

Swimming and hockey parents are the best because their kids have practices at the worst times.

Can't imagine the swimming meets (like track meets) are the most interesting to watch in person either.

Tough drop from 1st to 4th in the last 200 meters in Women's cycling (road race) for the US rider who is apparently a great climber but not as good in other parts. Just could not hold on to the lead. Worse though is that a Dutch rider who was in the lead with about 5-10 miles to go tumbled hard and ...

Jim Furyk just posted a 58 at The Travelers while hitting pars in his last 2 holes. Shot a 27 on the front 9 and 31 on the back 9. Best score ever at a PGA event. First PGA golfer ever to break 60 twice in his career.

If anyone knows, what standing does a GW Professor have to file these charges against her? Not arguing she should or should not be disbarred but I find it troublesome that a random person not related to her cases could file disbarment charges against her. Could it be because he is admitted to the Ma...

TV experience is actually better now for a lot of sports. Baseball is one of the major exceptions as many go more for the atmosphere than just sitting down to watch a game.
