been such a long time since i had seen it, i had completely forgotten the story line...but considering how intricate...Read more

a few things that have cheesed me off about these olympic games has to do with the coverage by NBC (aside from the shitty job of the opening ceremony coverage).... too much boxing, too much waterpolo, not enough coverage on non US athletes doing well... (usain who? fastest man in the world? no clue...)
