We can't win them all... Also most of the money is lottery based, as I understand...Every British performance I've seen (ie. almost all of them) have been piss poor so far.
Watched the women archers this morning....leading by five at half time against Russian.
Second half...fired a 6 and a 4 towards the end.....game over.
I can't understand why we, as a nation, pay for these people to stay away from work and train in these minority sports year upon year.
We're pumping money into mediocrity instead of focusing on those sports we are good at, those we have good chances of medalling at, such as rowing, cycling, sailing, and certain individual sportspersons.
Those girls who annoyed me supremely have trained 4 years to fire a 4 in an Olympic final.
In Ireland, a common phrase is "I don't mind who wins, as long as it's not the English".Disappointment where expected winds aren't coming in for the Brits, Lithuania has a gold, we don't yet but then I'm loving the fact that Germany hasn't won any medals. The schadenfreude almost makes up for it.
Bronze isn't winning....Then there was the Bronze for the Gymnastics team. Incredible. Historically we've been shite. There is where the lottery money was well spent Martin!
For someone who practically wallows in a love of mediocracy with the footy team you follow you seem to have no soul. 100 years since we last medaled..Bronze isn't winning....
It's the glory of the mediocre
I hate it
It's a bit like shoving a thousand pounds on a thoroughbred which has never won anything but is expected to place and it only shows....It's done well....but your still gonna be pissed off.
Well we haven't got to the Track and Field yet nitwit. She'll be there though.Dutch field hockey team is currently rated no. 1 for looks.
That video from Trev if I am not mistaken is not from the Olympics. Foul I say!
Personnally can't stand the olympics. I think that the money wasted on this event could be used for something more useful, oh like
fixing up our hospitals or helping homeless people get off the street, or help drug addicts etc. Oh it creates a few jobs and some money for the economy , but in the long run we have to pay debt from the dam things off for decades. China spent 43 billion on thier olympics, but what about the majority of thier population. or in Brazil for the world cup where the government torched the slum areas. Hmmmmm oh by the way maam we are going to burn your home down to make way for a bigger stadium oh by the way you can't watch the games because they are too expensive. All they are for is the elite and the amusement of the atheletes. I say cancel the damn things and spend the money where it should be helping those who are having troubles themselves.
http://www.smbc-comics.com/index.php?db=comics&id=2674#comicThere's always one 'I love to piss in the punch bowl' in every group. Yup, all sports should be banned. No movies, no concerts, no form of entertainment.... EVER. It should all go to the poor and homeless.
