Flipping between the channels, watching some track and women's 10 M platform diving. I have so much respect for this. If you've ever been to the diving boards, and gone up and jumped off of the 10 - that's pretty impressive in and of itself. I had a goal (and did it last year) to backflip off of the 10 M. From the 5M was EASY, and then going up to 10 makes a HUGE difference. When I hit the water, my teeth slammed together so hard, that it my tongue was between them, I feel like I would have bitten it off. We take for granted how impressive some of these athletic feats are and all of the progress that it takes to get to be one of the best in the world.
I feel that Bolt is better at the 200m than the 100m. I think everyone else would agree because his best strength in these races is towards the middle and final portions of the races where he can use his stride as an advantage.

Dammit! 2:30 am and I haven't slept yet and I have my alarm set for 6am to watch the women's soccer bronze medal match.

I may or may not have a little Olympic fever.

Canada have played well so far and it looks like they're up for this game and not suffering from a hangover from the game against the US.

They're controlling the pace of this game and have had the advantage in what little chances there has been so far.

You're just one of the smart guys. The rest of us try to sleep but can't, because we've got that I Believe song stuck in our heads.

Smart? Or crazy?

Couldn't sleep, so I'm up at 6 AM (MST) to watch this game on no sleep! (At least it's not because of that song!)

Nil-nil at the half and I wonder if Canada is going to be content with Thea rare opportunity here and there I they're going to open it up a bit.

Canada have to try and do something to spring Sinclair and let her go to work. She almost hit it from the corner of the 18 yard box in her lone opportunity.

France absolutely dominating the second half and Canada JUST holding on here. At this rate, just trying to get to extra time.

Woooohooo

Crazy game. I feel a little bit bad for the French. But then they should have been playing against the US anyway.

I don't care what sport it is…if it team Canada, I'm the biggest fan.

Even in the winter Olympics I'll be the biggest curling fan if it means we get a medal. (and I NEVER watch curling)

France was tracking every ball down effortlessly. Sometimes Canada was just giving it to them. But they couldn't convert. So close so many times. And then they didn't have the same legs near the end and Canada was finally able to muster up some offense. I'm a bit surprised at the lack of numbers the French team had back to defend at the end.
