    What?

    The Commonwealth Games is colonialist bullshit. And the Francophone Games and the Lusophony Games. (Which isn't to say don't let them at it - though I'm happy we're not in the Commonwealth any more)

    How are the Olympics - with practically every country in the world competing - colonialist?

        Just seen the video from Annemiek van Vleuten. Not gonna link it, what the fuck. Didn't even expect better ...

          I've never seen so many accidents in so little time in the Olympics... That broken leg was just horrific.

                The Olympic committee handling of their "copyrighted sport footage" gives Formula One Management a run for its money as far as being heartless dictators. There are people on youtube not even saying the Olympics name in fear of being hit with a copyright strike.

                  The NFL is no better, with everyone outside from official sponsors calling it "the big game."

                    The internet is greatly amused by Ethiopian swimmer Robel Kiros Habte. Reactions range from fatty jokes and people really liking him.

                    While it is true that with his time does not compare well to the other swimmers at the olympics, I think this should be put into perspective.
                    In 1908 Habte would have won the Gold medal and set a new world record with his time.

                      Kim Rhode is now the first ever woman to take the podium in six straight Olympics. Yet you probably haven't heard of her or about her achievement; big-name sponsors want nothing to do with her; mainstream media hasn't mentioned her.

                      Why? Because guns are icky.

                          Juan Martin Del Potro was so close to Tennis gold, and in his wake he left legends such as Novak Djokovic (current #1) and Rafael Nadal (#5 at the moment but former #1), finally Andy Murray punched his ticket, but it was good effort.

                          For non tennis people this would have been like Krillin winning the martial arts tournament after defeating Goku, Vegeta and barely losing to Gohan in the final.

                                      Great night for Irish sport! Pat Hickey arrested; a warrant out for John Delaney.

                                      Happy days.
