        Yeah not sure what's going on with the US team sports. I know the US basketball team lost two of their exhibition games.

          with basketball it's all messy with NBA playoffs colliding with the schedule so obviously the team isn't the absolute best one. with the soccer team the big names just failed to show up yesterday

                I heard that a chiro from the US had to issue a public apology after he compared Covid protocol to Nazi Germany or something

                      I thought the ceremony was fitting and beautiful. Happy for Osaka!

                        The moment when Osaka light the Olympic Flame... I almost passed out... as the biggest tennis worshipper ever... this was historical and also to let HER do it... one of the new GOATS and such a humble queen... it made my day today.

                        well done... the ceremony was beautiful.

                          I was thinking that it would actually be lovely to give Tokyo and Japan the opportunity to have hosted again in the nearish future, but they have already spent billions on this that it would just be another huge cost. It's a shame that Japan cannot benefit from these Olympics like they otherwise would have.

                          The ceremony was beautiful and touching. It made it even more 'sad' in that the Japanese (and the world) could not really celebrate these games. It was lovely seeing Naomi there. What a surprise. Well done to her.

                            Immediately after watching the 2020/21 opening... I had to go back to youtube and re-watch my favourite opening of all times... Sydney2000.

                            God, the whole atmosphere in 2000 in the stadium was electric. I'm also bummed out for Japan that the conditions in which the games are placed are so dire and bad. I just hope... that nothing bad happens and that the athletes can enjoy their events.

                              One of my faves to follow every year and at the Olympics.

                              Track and Field will be fun as always, and gymnastics.

                                Awww memories!
                                The buzz in Sydney was amazing - there was a party atmosphere all the time throughout the city.

                                It should have been like that in Tokyo. :( Tokyo is an amazing city.
                                I agree, I really hope everything goes well!


                                While we're on this - just feel like I need to apologise for Brisbane 2032
                                Who would have guessed a small country town would get to host the Olympics.

                                  small? Bisbane has almost 2,6 million inhabitants... (only 1m less than Berlin and twice as big as Munich 1972). I think it is a major city. And knowing Australia, it will be a GREAT event. <3

                                      My faves are: diving, swimming, gymnastics, track cycling, some canoeing / rowing, and bits of athletics.

                                      The BBC have an awful presenting team IMO. I absolutely cannot stand Claire Balding. And they got Dan Wa*ker doing the mornings - which thankfully I’ll never be up I’m time for. Hazel Irvine irritates me too.

                                        I generally just watch the athletics tbh. Im not that interested in anything else, if i catch whatever ill catch it. I dont mind Hazel, Claire Balding is insufferable. The worst ever though is when they have Catherine Merry commentating on athletic events. She makes me want to saw my ears off.

                                                I watched a bit of the skateboarding... and I was so confused.

                                                One guy's pants slipped down, quite a few of them fell off their boards, and most seemed disinterested. Maybe they were just really cool. Too cool to be interested. Or high. I honestly couldn't tell.

                                                  oooh I wanted to watch some of this because it's new, isnt it?

                                                  I ended up watching some of the freestyle swimming instead.
