I don't get it. How is that in Women's Beach Volleyball, a U.S. team is playing a U.S. team for the gold.  ???

Did I hear that correctly?  ???

I got to see Alexandre Despatie dive yesterday. Unfortunately, he didn't make the finals. But he's still gorgeous. ...  ::)

I was surprised to see Troy Dumais was still an Olympian. Good for him!  :D

And Oscar Pistorius is cute. ...  ::)

Actually, Alexandre DID make it to the finals, but ended way off the podium - like in 9th or 12th place.

BTW, even though he's be around for a long time, he's been in the starlight from the age of 13 - sooo he's currently still just 27 years old.

27 and 4 Olympics under his belt, that's pretty wild. He came in 11th, but he's had rough with two injuries and the last one was just six weeks before the games.  That was his last Olympic game and it's sound like he might be retiring from competition diving altogether.  He said in an interview that he now wanted to concentrate on an acting career.

I just watched the quarter men's water polo between Serbia & Australia. What an exiting game that was!  Australia lead the first three quarters but then Serbia woke up in the fourth to finish and one 11 to 8.

Now it's Spain vs Montenegro.

Thanks, Roland. I'm glad to know he did make the finals, sorry he didn't medal.

I saw the men's springboard semifinals yesterday, and I thought I saw the final scores in the semifinals,  ::)  and his name wasn't in them. I guess those rankings change after every dive, and I can't follow any of those scorings anyway!  :laugh: Maybe I didn't see all of the semifinals.

I just watched my very first game of Handball, France vs Spain, and I fell in love with it.  It's a really fast and aggressive game.  I could almost smell the testosterone emanating from my TV.   And I love that it's the national sport of Iceland, how cool is that?

They were tied at 22 points but France scored at literally the last second.  The spanish players were heartbroken of course, some were in tears.

Did anyone catch the Nederland's Epke Zonderland's high bar routine? I think it yesterday or the day before It was astonishing and easily got him the gold.  I think it was yesterday but I've been sick at home and watching the games nonstop so it's hard to keep track :


Here's a better shot, :-*:

Epke Zonderland

And being dutch he's not afraid to do some beekcake shots.  I added the sticker because I'm not sure if a bit of pubes violates the rules.  I've been warned twice about the photos I post, lol!  


(BTW: Do any of you know photo hosting sites located in Europe? Photobucket keeps censoring my pics.  Even that photo of a pork kidney I posted in the "What's the strangest food you ever eaten"!?)

Bulgaria is moving on to the semi-finals in men's Volleyball. They dominated Germany and won all three sets.  The star of the show was Bulgaria's 6'9" , 22yr  Tsvetan (Tsetso) Sokolov.   It was an excellent game.  I couldn't find any revealing photos unfortunately.  I guess Eastern European male athletes are slower to commodify they're bodies.
