Let He Who Is Without Sin...

Crazy Bela is up in arms about the Olympics gymnastics scoring.

Go tell it to Yang Tae Young, Bela. And ask Paul Hamm to give back his stolen gold medal from Athens.

Meanwhile, I am stunned by the performance of Team GB, stunned and delighted. They must have prepared for the Beijing smog and the mass of humanity by going to smoky restaurants and on British public transport (Ah, in-jokes).

I am so happy for all those British athletes who after spending years in the shadows of the more dominant (and less successful) sports like soccer are now feted as national heroes in a sport-mad country. Plus the UK is out-performing Australia, which is ALWAYS a cause for VE Day-like mad abandon street parties.
