i didn't realize this until last night (uncultured, i know) during the medal ceremony of the heptathlon that the home country ennis won (pretty decent looking too) and heard "god save the queen". i found myself instinctively singing "my country tis of thee" and when i actually paid attention to the words, i realized this was a 1700's version of "hit em up". basically, it was a giant F.U. from colonial america to it's former rulers.
Yeah Jess Ennis is like the face of the British Olympic team over here and the face of GB athletics. She had so much pressure on her to win and she absolutely smashed it! Very proud of her, she performed when she needed to. Who is the face of the US Olympic team? Is it Phelps? I miss Maurice Green "the green machine"
Anyone watching GB basketball v China. World number 43 (us) against world number 10s. I know neither teams are playing for anything but just to win one game is huge for GB. First time we would win a game in the Olympics!
Plus Yi is playing for those who are interested in signing him
Wow, that dude is going to have nightmares about that dunk.
I hope I wasn't the only one who caught that epic USA-Canada game
I have a dumb question. I've been watching the Olympics for the last week and a half and have seen people from all over the world, but I haven't seen anyone out of India.
Why is that?
