Olympic Fever

In case you've spent the past weekend in a coma or a Tibetan re-education camp, it's my duty to inform you that the Olympics are underway.

I've only managed to catch a few events so far, largely because the thought of sitting through a Bizarro World sport like team handball or the quarterfinals for women's water polo bores me to tears. That said, I did manage to catch some of the swimming finals last night and saw the conclusion of the China-Spain basketball game this morning. Hell, I even got into an archery match. (The remote was too far away.)

Anyway, it seems there's been some genuine athletic excitement. What have I missed? What are people looking forward to? Is it true the Chinese government built the athlete's dorms out of dissidents?

I love that picture. I printed it out and it's on my joke board.
