This is Hiroshi Hoketsu. At 67, he was the oldest Olympian this year. He first competed in the 1964 Olympics; and he has never won a medal. In an interview with BBC he said that he was honored to once again represent his country in a small way and hoped that his decorum during the competition would honor his country and his family. If we are looking into human cloning, might I suggest Hiroshi? Wouldn't if wonderful if everyone had those thoughts? He's a rock star in his country, as he should be.
Which brings me to these buffoons....
The Spanish basketball team (who we beat for the gold medal).
What were they thinking mocking the host COUNTRY, all 3 billion of them? Hello? Can you say bad manners? Have they not heard of the INTERNET which can INSTANTLY beam pictures all over the world, including China? Personally, I think the I---- word is appropriate here.
This is the American Basketball team, aka "The Redeem Team".
They won the Gold Medal. Well, I SHOULD HOPE SO!!!They have a combined worth of about $30 Billion dollars which is the equivalent to the GNP of the entire southern hemisphere of our world. When you take 12 of the highest paid, most successful athletes in a sport, I would expect a handy win. It was close, methinks cockiness almost got in the way. I guess the days of amateur athletes in the Olympics is really gone.
Which brings me to this Olympian...
Kirsty Coventry. She won the first Olympic gold for Zimbabwe, the country she was born in, not raised in, not trained in, not schooled in, not anything in, except birth. They just emptied the National Treasury and gave her a suitcase full of cash, $100,000 worth for winning 1 gold and 3 silver medals. Good for you Kirsty! Now give the money back. You will do fine here in the US coaching and doing personal appearances. Do you realize how MUCH $100,000 can do for the poorest in your country? Just a thought. (and from a republican at that....)
Kirsty got $100,000, Rebecca Adlington got a pair of Jimmy Choo's
Money brings to me to this....
Mrs. Phelps, I hate to tell you, but you totally got ripped off by Michael's orthodontist.
My son has braces on right now, I took Michael's picture (and this is a good angle because I like him so much) and told Dr. Esterkyn that this is NOT what I'm paying for. Maybe he can invest in Invisiline braces now that he is king of the Universe.
And speaking of ruling.....
Who ARE these three women?
The Olympic Gold, Silver and Bronze medalists for Olympic Foil Fencing.
Foil Fencing? Like Reynold's wrap? Haven't got a clue how they score, what they are doing or how they win...but how cool was it to see those three flags side by side as they played the National Anthem?
Which brings me to these people.
They are our relay runners. They didn't get ANY kind of flag, in fact, they didn't get to run in the finals. The FIRST time since 1948! Both male and female, hmmmmm....does anyone else smell something foul?
Speaking of foul....
President Bush, I love ya man...but stop checking out Misty's rear end. Although it does give me a little snicker that the old guy has obviously still got it!
Speaking of getting it....
Don't give these guys Gatorade when they finish the race,
give 'em some cheeseburgers!! Good Grief...have you ever seen a skinnier bunch? (is my jealousy showing?)
The Lightening BOLT..... he's gotten in trouble for 'Show-Boating' after winning the 100M in a World Record time. If I had won, I'd bring Show Boating to a whole new level...I'd be cartwheeling down the track. (Isn't that a great visual? ha!)
French swimmer Dude...when you meet the President of France, maybe you could put on some nice pants to go with the jacket. Just a thought Dude.
Nothing to say... but isn't this just weird or wrong or disturbing?
Add a caption...a prize for the best one.
And now...the party is over.
$$$$$$400 BILLION dollars $$$$$$$$ to put on the Olympics (with cheap Chinese labor). Boggles the mind.
