    Lots of Amazon position probably going on in the culminate, so that could definitely help the load on the bed frames.

    They should release after pics of mangled beds so we can compare which country tore things up worst

    Dang that really sucks for her. Was responsible and got the vaccine but happened to be one of the small percentage to have a breakthrough case and she has to miss the Olympics because of it.

    this is absolutely the dumbest shit ever. Either have Covid protocols or don't. This kind of bull shit halfway enforcement is only going to cause problems.

    I dont see how they cancel now with everyone who is going to participate being there now. Sadly this is going to suck cancellation or no cancellation.

    What is consensus best way for chord cutters to watch olympics this year? First gut was Peacock and it does seem like they may have the most content BUT nothing in 4k. YouTube TV will carry some 4k events along wiht most of the channels NBC is showing events on.

    Seems to be Youtube TV if you aren't afraid of an $80 bill for a month to watch?

    YouTube tv will automatically record all Olympic content if you want when you boot it up. We went that route.

    Does anyone know if they will hold finals for big things like they did when it was in Beijing? I remember watching the swimming stuff (suck our dicks Frenchies) live, so that would've been morning over there

    Who are we invested in?

    Swimming is my main sport but Michael Andrew annoys me, everyone but him. Women’s soccer and basketball(lol at them losing) for sure.

    Big into weightlifting but USA sucks bc they can’t cheat like other countries.

    Track & Field is always my favorite summer games watching and we always dominate the medal count in that so that helps.

    Volleyball, both men's and women's is pretty amazing too.

    Inject every event outside of equestrian directly into my veins.

    Surfing primer for those outside of me and Where Eagles Dare : the world’s best talent is an American from Hawaii named John John Florence. Unfortunately, he’s had 3 knee injuries in the last 4 years. He just ripped his acl 9 weeks ago and underwent some new procedure.

    when he’s on he’s the best. Problem is he’s got a contemporary from Brazil named Gabriel Medina who isn’t as talented but is a better competitor. He’ll prolly win gold. There’s a strong likelihood for a typhoon to slide by Japan during the olympics, so we’ll see some really good, big waves if anyone wants to watch it with us.

    On the women’s side we’re strong favorites. The world’s best is carissa Moore, also from Hawaii. She’s in prime form and doesn’t have the injury concerns John John has.

    The biggest disgrace is that 3 on 3 basketball is in the Olympics for the first time this year and the USA men's team didn't even qualify. Got knocked out by the Dutch a couple months ago.
