Team USA -- A Sign of Life!!

Bode Miller and Rahlves lost terribly in the Downhill
Michelle Kwan withdrew
Shaun White almost didn't make the final of the snowboarding halfpipe
USA basically sucks at everything else

Looks like this is going to be a disappointing Olympic games where we get a rude awakening

Michelle Kwan withdrawing means nothing in regards to your medal count. Cohen withdrawing would, and as far as I know she's still skating.

But note that US sucks at Ski Jumping, Bobsled, Luge, Nordic

But really, medal count is just one aspect of it. It's just that it seems like everything's falling apart. Everyone's beating themselves up. Team USA was supposed to be a contender, and it's getting upstaged and outright destroyed (i.e. by Jennifer Heil in the women's mogul last night )

The Olympics just started, it's too early for the negativity.


GO USA!

Poor team USA, leading the medals table

Team USA should do like the Belgian olympic team: send only 4 athletes with no medal hope whatsover.

Everything you do continues long after you've gone

Speedskating and all those X-Game type exercises should help with the medal count. Ice Dancing has a shot. Women's singles skaing Cohen will probably medal, I'm just wanting it to be bronze. Bode and his gang have more skiing in front of them and it is very early for everything and everyone. Oh and I can't forget those gripping 6-0 wins in women's hockey.

Björk
Imperious in victory. Never conceiving the possibility of defeat. The greatest of her era. The self-belief, that smile, backhand, muscles, serve, personality, all larger than life. There's no greater sight in women's tennis than watching Serena J. Williams go to work.
The others are Great, but Serena's the Greatest

But I'm just saying, awfully close call

And I do suppose that it's only been two days...but it's just a little disappointing It's just that I get so patriotic during the Olympics

Dude, it's hardly the same thing considering the difference in size and population of the US vs. Belgium.

I read in an AP article at MSN that he was spotted downing a few beers at midnight the night before

I heard he went out drinking yesterday, missed the track inspection this morning and showed up just an hour before the race.

No.
