    *back away from discussion about mens gymnastics*

    On a side note, how many Olympics threads will get started this week, as there really is only one that matters...

    And yet neither thread linked to the event list.

    I used to dive so I always try to watch some of that. Too bad in-line speed skating never made it out of exhibition, there can be some great wrecks.

    I'm just not as in to it as I used to be. Wth is Trampoline all about?

    they spend like a minute and a half doing flips and ****.

    There is a synchronised tramp event thats actually kinda fun to watch, they flip at the same time!

    now that i can stream everything im going to try and watch some of the TKD and Judo competitions.

    this should be the main thread for all olyimpic talk.

    a.) because i made it
    b.) because it actually says olyimpics 2008 in the thread title.

    I already did and had just finished sending him a PM about it (trying to be discreet), but it looks like the cat's out of the bag.

    Sorry Silver.

    I thought the game from my childhood was Track and Field 2 so years ago I bought it again only to be disappointed. The real game was Crash 'n Bash Brothers. Anyone else play that? That game is epic.

    Wow I just realized T&F2 was NES, not snes. Even more epic.
    EDIT: YES!

    The one I played was Track Meet (came on the cartridge that had Mario and Duck Hunt). The inclusion of the running mat (think DDR mat) was awesome.

    ^ except that you never had to actually run, just lean back and shift the weight on your heels really fast.

    If I wanted to cheat, I would have used my Game Genie.

    The long jump was the best in that game.

    I thought playing mario 1 with a game genie and moon jump on was amazing.

    I like tennis because of the clothes.

    But anyway, will have a closer look at what's on the Olympics tomorrow.

    Correction. Women's beach volleyball is also a new event.
