    Always thought we had a friendly rivalry, you seem to be actually quite angry, also would prefer it if you didn't use the P word. You got a massive cheer when you (Australia) entered the Stadium, is Britain not as popular in Australia as Australia is in Britain?

    You should take it as a compliment. You have had our measure in sport recently after years of us having your measure, especially in cricket. We don't like losing, or more specifically, I don't like losing. It would be the same for New Zealand if they beat us at sport consistently but we usually have their measure (but even THEY are beating us this year).

    NBC, you don't have to show us every Olympic athlete's emotional story about how they made it this far. Neither do we have to see Mary Carillo talking about the bagpipes.


    Anyway, good to see track and field starting up. Watching men's 400m hurdle right now.

    Although I'm American cheering for Team USA, I sort of do hope the Aussies can get more gold.

    That's how NBC does things for prime time broadcasts. They present the Olympics as a drama more than an actual sporting event.

    Yeah exactly they could fit in more events instead of show that junk. The daytime coverage is tolerable, but I prefer watching the stream, though it's laggy. If I could have access to BBC's coverage I would.


    Edit: Congrats to Michael Phelps on winning 22 medals and becoming the most decorated Olympian of all time! Nice to be able to witness him win his final swim in his career.

    The Olympics are one of the few times I miss living in Detroit (where I grew up), since our proximity to Canada meant we had access to the CBC, which shows the events when they happen and with less of the "Hallmark moments." Now I'm stuck with crappy NBC.

    Hopefully at least the timing issue will change sooner or later, though. It's kind of impossible to keep people in suspense until the channel feels like airing it in the age of Twitter, blogs, etc.

    Hi, I'm Rose. I love music, alcohol, pointless Internet debates and being a snob about my choices in entertainment. I write a lot. You can read some of my writing at Autostraddle.com, the best site for LBTQ women on the Internet, where I am a staff writer. Or the funhouse that is my tumblr. I also write music sometimes, and post the better fruits of my labors on my SoundCloud.

    Any Tennis fan around? I am extremely happy for Murray, he finally got his 'revenge'.

    Also, I always root for William sisters, so cheers to Serena for beating the shit out of Sharapova XP

    Haha he got his revenge in style beating federer in straight sets! Well done murray

    Felt sorry for him that he lost in doubles though, It probably took the good mood off him, but he'll be happy with silver.

    Huge thanks to Blue Dragon for my EPIC avatar & sig

    Everyone in NZ is so happy about beating you Aussies. Im just glad we're doing so good, I could care less if we beat you. Honestly, all the best to your athletes. :)

    The power went out in my town during the uneven bars final. Ugh. I might as well wait for the archived stream to be posted since NBC coverage won't be worth watching.

    Finally Russia has a gold in women's gymnastics. I'm hoping they win the next two women's event finals. Let's go Komova and Afanasyeva. Show the rest of the world how it's done.
