Seriously people, no Olympics thread yet?!

Rant and rave here.

Woohoo, our top swimmer, Alexander Dale Oen, just set a new olympic record in the 100 meter breaststroke! :D  

So when's the Tennis starting? Go Federer! :kiss:

That a shame how the referee cheated the game against french women handball team because we was the winner at the last second and they screw us A SHAME !

Anyway i'm fed up with the Olympics Games !

Yes the judges are assholes they specially always give advantage to China - i dont wonder why- i seen so many teams got screwed !

I was watching the Olympic Games even if i boycott china and that i hate this government who still torture people in jail because they want to be free to say what they think and because they are criminals about Tibet and the Dailai Lama !

I always said it was a shame to give the OG to a dictature like China it's so wrong it's against all the respect and Olympism values and fairplay !

FREE TIBET NOW !
