Me too Dietz...love watching the games.

Good luck to everyone representing the USA...especially Doug Schwab from Osage, IA in wrestling. There is not a more determined individual competing. I am certain of that! smile

I thought it was very good maybe not a $100,000,000 dollars good which is what they spent on the opening ceremony but VERY Good none the less.

Go USA!

I had heard the bill was $300 million.

Think of all the starving people that could be fed for $300 million!

Don't get me wrong...the opening ceremony was pretty cool....but dang.

I also heard China has spent like 40 billion on the entire games can that be right?

Don't forget the games will be airing on NBC, MSNBC, CNBC, USA, Oxygen and for Direct TV customers channels 750-753

For Dish customers the olympic coverage is on NBC, MSNBC, CNBC-HD, USA-HD, Oxygen, and Universal-HD.

There are also two special channels that are each dedicated to basketball and soccer (ch 365 & 367). They are in high definition too.

Two more special channels feature "Team USA" and athlete bios (ch 474 & 473).

Dish's interactive feature allows you to watch all six primary channels of Olympic coverage at once if you choose to do so.

I've already got olympic fatigue.

WOW. What a finish in the 4x100 Mens swimming. It looked like they were beat and they came back in the last 25 meters to beat the Frenchies. Obliterated the world record in the process.

your right dan,

talk about putting words back into the frech mouth. That was a great race, and im glad that they finished strong and beat up on the french.

Also nice to see Katie Hoof get the silver in the 400. She got tired at the end, thought she was going to take it home for the USA.

We have to have the highest medals so far if not going to be on top this year.

What sweet revenge. The frogs were talking smack about "smashing" the USA but like Toby Keith says, "We'll put a boot in your a$$ it's the American way". I think the frogs have a few Tony Lama's firmly wedged between their cheeks!

GO USA!

its was great to see them beat them last night.

I hope that phelps can get the record. You could tell last night that he was just hanging back and did just enough to get into the finals in the 200

I hate to admit it but last night was the first chance I had to sit down and watch the Olympics. I actually forgot they were on. Wow what awesome races. I had a hard time turning off the tube and going to bed. I'm sure I'll be checking in everynight from now on..

it doesnt get any better than to beat the frenchies after they talk smack. why on earth would anyone talk smack to ANY race Phelps is involved in? Just goes to show you that although the 4 frenchmen are good swimmers, they dont have much between the ears. prolly makes them more bouyant.

And even after getting their hats handed to them they still had that arrogant frog attitude! One of their guys in the race was quoted as saying that the .08 second finish was "just a fingertip" so it was not that big of a deal....ENJOY YOUR SILVER MEDAL, Froggie! we will do the same with our GOLD! I guess that was the "Gold Finger" eh?

GO USA!

    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?     
    • Yes. But he has a great plan to utilize the excess rail capacity in the country by relocating those who disagree with him. It's gonna be a real gas. 
    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.
    • You must have been on some sh*tty ice for it to do that... Love my heavy spud bar, if it doesn't go through in a couple wacks I feel pretty darn confident in stepping...Spud bar,picks,pfd,rope, common sense all ya need

    • What? You don't like the 1st amendment?
    • there is a seat belt law, why not have a ice picks law? if you are caught out ice fishing before the 1st of the year without picks, you get a "stupid" ticket.
    • So burning a Quran, or pouring bacon grease on it must be protected as well?  And flying the Stars and Bars?  How is that working out?
