Dunbar's Olympic-sized Bits and Pieces

  • The Olympic pool is probably 4 inches short. Were there outside inspectors to measure the pool or did we rely on China's good word and expert craftsmanship?
  • Any complaints if men's field hockey is replaced with lacrosse? Didn't think so.
  • UFC's Dana White should be on the horn setting up a four man tournament. The gold medalists in wrestling and boxing fight to take on the winner between judo and tae-kwon-do. Now only to choose which weight class. I only have 58 options.
  • Eric Shanteau will forever be known as testicular cancer Olympic swimmer guy. Life isn't fair as he well knows.
  • Couple days back I heard the song Carrie by Europe during the beach volleyball tournament. I can't tell if it was for Kerrie Walsh or China hasn't had an import of American music since 1986.
  • The men's floor routine has a hint of NASCAR to it. You watch hoping they crash on their necks.
  • Host cities must be capable of building an enormous sloping indoor track for the opportunity for someone to ride their bike inside in a circle. The dullness and concept of indoor biking is mind numbing. If you want to ride inside it should be old school big wheels in a makeshift Mario Kart arena. I would watch that.
