Gary Russell Jr. (US boxer) had to drop out because he passed out while trying to cut weight. Frankie Gavin (UK boxer) also had to drop out becuae he wasn't going to make weight.

What sucks for the boxers is that they have to make weight every sinlge time they fight in the olympics.

The fireworks for the openning ceremony was INSANNNEEEEEE, damn, those Asians know how to put on a show.

I'll be looking out for Weightlifting, Judo, Soccer and 100m, thats it, the rest sucks.

And I'll definitely make sure to avoid the NBC broadcast, they're so damn biased.

I love the Olympics, I'll be watching the events you listed plazz as well as long jump, wrestling, and the diving! I love the diving!

I've also been known to get stuck watching the gymnastics at times, I don't know why but I do.

So far...

Australia Vs Serbia(Only soccer game to be televised so far) was absolute bullsh*t. Terrible game, Australia was lucky to get a 1-1 draw and not a 8-0 loss. It seemed our game plan was to boot it up field and hope for the best every time we got it which is like our main national team up until about 5 years ago and it didn't work then and we stop doing it and actually use some proper tactics and guess what happens? Qualify for the world cup.

The opening ceremony from what little i saw looked great, I saw a giant circle of Kung Fu guys which i thought looked really really good.

I like watching it all and the Judo starts today and hopefully the Aussies do well, i know a few so i will be supporting them.

I'm actually watching the Tai Chi circle right now. I truly don't think there will every be an openning ceremony as elaborate as this ever again, unless they bring the World Cup over or Olympics back to China or Japan.
