Teams USA in Athens

Athens 2004 Team USA
Team USA

NBC Olympic TV
I have to be honest with you.  I much prefer to see images of young Americans overseas competing in the 2004 Olympic Games on MSNBC, Bravo, and NBC than seeing them with camo and kevlar on Fox news in Bush's Iraq.

I'm actually watching some of the Olympic coverage because I'm awake when they air it in the middle of the night.  Oddly, but perhaps out of corporate rivalry, I don't hear Fox News getting all uber-patriotic over U.S. athletes winning medals in Athens.  Maybe Rupert Murdoch will green-light an olympic story on Fox News if an Australian wins something cool.  It's too bad we can't vote someone else to be in charge of Fox News -- Oh Wait.  I forgot we can vote with our TV remote control.  I guess there is a place for Fox News in the media world, right along the lines of Al-Jazeera.  I always thought it was interesting that Fox News came after the Sci-Fi channel on the cable channel food chain.  Sorry, I'm just thinking out loud.

Have you been following the Summer Olympics in Athens?  I mean, you know, the athletes -- not just the pretty women that are making their mark in Playboy and FHM magazines.  Do you have a favorite sport in the Summer Olympics?  Are you any good at these sports?  Here's a list of the Summer Olympic sports to ease the burden on the few, tired and overworked brain cells you have left sparking between your ears:
