The Olympics
« on: August 04, 2008, 15:44:15 PM »
So, 4 days to go until the 2008 Summer Olympics kick off. Anyone care? Anyone looking forward to anything in particular? Human rights aside (start another thread if you must) has China done a good job?
Ride fast, take chances. Just don't blame me when you fall off.
