    It's not too late. This is basically the only time of the year you get to watch obscure sports on TV, let alone have them matter.

    Congrats to Poland on their silver medal. It's gold in my heart.
    Look at all the fun we're having.

    Tell me about it. I've looked all over for a channel that has archery with no luck. It doesn't exist. 8( Not even on the channel that has nothing but guns and hunting. And for some reason you have to specially order the NHL channel for ice hockey, and that's an extra fee on your bill...
    sometimes I wish for falling
    wish for the release
    wish for falling through the air
    to give me some relief

    because falling's not the problem;
    when i'm falling, i'm in peace.
    it's only when i hit the ground
    it causes all the grief

    I've come to enjoy the volleyball and swimming/diving. Though I have to admit, the winter games has a lot more sports that I get excited to watch.

    Why can't handball be more popular in America. It seems fun as hell.

    I dunno if there are different kinds of handball, but I read a Bill Simmons' Article about the sport earlier today, and it completely sold me. After watching a couple games, I've decided that I need to start training so that I can be part of the team in 2016. Maybe.

    Seems pretty interesting, the handball I've been playing my whole life looks like this.

    This is what pisses me off, the IOC needs to either allow one more station to air the Olympics or pick another fricking channel. NBC is just going to take the Olympics and make it more and more crap every time they have it on. Part of me wants to blame this on Comcast buying them out, everything Comcast touches turns to crap, or turns crappier than it was. (See Comcast buying out TechTV, making it G4TechTV, then the now G4.)
