Man this is fun to watch so far. The opening ceremony was by far the most visually stunning thing I have ever seen in my life. I had goosebumps the whole time watching it. Team USA Bball is going to crush, and Phelps is the f-ing TRUTH. That 4x100 swimming relay a little bit ago was absolutely amazing to watch with our comeback. And the track and field events havent even started.

Watched Sean Johnson out at a huge booth at the fair that they had set up with about a thousand others watching. That was pretty cool. They even have a butter Sean this year. Her thighs are huge in the statue kind of funny.
Are you ready for the Challenge?

she was rock solid last night, supposedly, and a bunch of other girls on the team all fell & stuff. Jitters got to them, for sure. I hope they all do well, but as long as the hometown girl does well, that's what will matter the most. Just bring hole some Gold, Sean!

Yeah thank God that was only the prelims, every single US gymnast fell or went out of bounds in every routine except for Shawn. If I was 16 doing that shit id probly have jitters too. Btw, did anyone else notice how young the Chinese gynmasts looked? 16 is the min. age, i would bet my balls that 3 of them were no older than 10.

Most def., got the strongest sense of nationalism watching them celebrate and watching the trash-talking French pout. Race was sooo sick.
