    Lelo-kun, its not that we havent qualified, england just doesnt go to the olympic football competitions. We pulled out decades ago. ^^;

    And *ahem* GO TEAM GB!!!!! (Hopefully we'll get a decent amount of golds, target: beat the german, french and italians and get the most medals in europe )

    @Imperium, ohh ok. They should compete though, they should send all the young up and coming English stars to play. But I guess their too cool for school. I also miss watching them compete, they've been my favorite team since I started watching football, and lately theyve been MIA(cough, Euro08, cough), but atleast Man United are doing excellent.

    Russia played pretty good against the US basketball team, they were the first to hold them under 100 points and they only lost by around 20, which is really good.

    Whoot! U.S. 1 - Japan 0. Yeah, I know it was a fairly weak goal, and Japan missed many good opportunities. Not to mention a debatable non-call in the penalty box late in the game, but I'll take the win. With the Netherlands and Nigeria tying, our chances to advance are looking pretty good atm. Well, the Netherlands are next up for the U.S.

    I will say the chance of U.S. advancing still isn't all that good. Because i don't see them been be able to beat Netherland or Nigeria. And i think both Nigeria and Netherland can beat Japan. So if this happen that means Netherland will have 7pts, Nigeria 7pts, USA 3pts, and Japan 0pts. Which means USA wouldn't make it out of the Group. This what i see happening because i just dont see U.S. beating either Netherland nor Nigeria. I just don't see, especiallly base on their performance against Japan.
    But i wouldn't count them out yet if they can step their game up. Against the Dutch they will need to step their defense up a few notches. If i was them my mind set will be: Just don't lose. Just a draw will be good. If they can just draw against the Dutch or Nigeria then i believe they will be one of the team out of the group.

    Right. Nothing short of spectacular

    Well, it fits with the theme :3 The Clouds of Heaven (the scroll designs, the scroll itself, etc). That guy is portrayed to be "ascending" into the heavens

    No fair, everybody has already seen the Opening Ceremonies. Oh well, I still have to wait 30 minutes. I hate when major sporting events are in Asia. I never get to see anything live.

    I don't see any country topping China Opening Ceremonies for awhile...

    It will definitely make a list of 'things you must see'...
