    So they kicked out that US Judoka competitor because he tested positive for THC. He says it ate it unwittingly before he left for the Olympics. Seems a bit harsh from the Olympic committee, what were they afraid of? That he would eat the Brownee Brothers before the men’s triathlon?

    Damn, my jokes are losing form, too much pressure from the Australian media I guess.

    … and the word of the week is ” hubris”. The most over-exploited word by the Olympic games’ pundits and media in describing the Oz performance in London. We clealry need a word “tax’….

    ( p.s. should I win the bonus bet, you will be responsible for my hubris)

    Channel 9, 110m hurdles heats are so funny. Watching them knock down the hurdles shouldn’t be something funny, but it is really funny. hahhaha.

    Men’s heat three so funny. The guy in red knocked them all down, and the guy in blue did a funny dive. hahaha, so funny. Too bad there is no replay.

    The only thing cooler than watching Usain Bolt win 100m gold is watching him do it in Lego!

    Seriously the coolest thing you’ll see. Notable mention to Asafa Powell pulling up short they even put that in there. Fantastic Stuff
