As a proud Jingoist, these Olympics have been pretty exciting. I was legitimately excited by the men's 4x200 freestyle relay (the one where the US won by milliseconds) and I appreciate that I can see women's beach volleyball or men's water polo at any time of the day. I could do without all these Chinese people, though. It's bullshit, they're just training people to win events no one cares about. It's not a gold in the 98 kg weightlift, it's a gold in wasting your life. I'm pretty sure the US will overtake China in the overall medal count once we unleash our army of track athletes but there's no way we're catching them in gold medals.
Oh well, at least we've won a few medals. Wouldn't you be really embarrassed if your nation trained and trained and then couldn't even win one lousy bronze? That would be pretty pathetic. What's that? Oh:
