    Just read that myself, good for them!

    I'm going to watch Michael Phelps closely as he tries to tie or beat Spitz's record gold medal collection. Looks like the US will be tough in the swimming events. I'm happy they tossed a lot of dopers, including the Americans. A lot of this is long overdue and a black eye to perhaps the worlds greatest sport gathering.

    So, so. I like winter olympics better, but I always root for Canada either way. :banana: I'll admit it, I can be biased too.

    Haha ya I love winter too (mostly because it ups Canada's medal tally), but I rowed on the same team as one of Canada's rowers and I was at the last Olympics in Sydney so I'm a rabid olympics fan.

    It was the best time of my life. Bar none. Just meeting people from the round the world gives you perspective too!
