the olympic bs...........

just had to blog about this....because I for one think it is total bullsh*t!!! Yesterday we watched as the Jamaican runners took all three medal's in the 100 meter sprint....the ones that came in behind the gold medal winner were TIED....so they BOTH got a silver medal...OK cool they tied they both DESERVE the silver right!!! well, today watching the uneven bars in gymnastics on tv, the girl from China did her routine.....scored a 16.725....she had mistakes....but they still rewarded her with that big score.....up next was the US girl....she did FAR better than the girl from China, sure she had a couple of mistakes BUT not nearly as much as the girl from China....(who by the way is sixteen my ass!!!) and ended up with a score of 16.725....same as the girl from China...both Gold medal winners right!?!?!?! I mean it is the Olympics after all where the best of the best if they are tied they both get the same gold medal right!!! NOPE not in gymnastics!!! they have a tie breaker system set up!!! how effed up is that?!?! the damn Australian judge obviously totally inexperienced or maybe just wanted to get back at the USA because we kicked the Aussie's ass in swimming....gave a total suck ass score to poor Nastia....but gave the Chinese chick a higher score....what she has been smoking I guess we will never know....the whole throw out of highest scores then the lowest to find out who wins the tie breaker.....is just a LOAD OF BULL!!! so I guess that sets up a fine example to young girls that gee in track and field and any other sport in the Olympics if you tie you both get the same medal...but if its Gymnastics....you are shit out of luck!!!! I agree with Béla Károlyi its a total bunch of bullsh*t and needs to be changed!!! ok just my little pissed off point of view on this....

I just hate the type of example things like that send to our children. You try and raise them to value honesty and fair play and then things like this happen.

I was so pissed off over that myself.
