Topic: 2008 Olympics: Which country are you rooting for?

Im routing for USA.

                          So, Which country are you routing for during these 2008 Summer Olympic games?

Re: 2008 Olympics: Which country are you rooting for?

Instead of just asking what country we're voting for, why not a discussion on the 2008 Olympics in general?

I'm rooting for the USA.

I think they should have moved it because of the massive amounts of air pollution.

take it easy baby take it as it comes

Re: 2008 Olympics: Which country are you rooting for?

I always go for my nationality, which is USA. They say the Olympics might be in Chicago in 2016, but it's been in America a lot.

I'm not really an expert in navigation, so I won't be routing them anywhere, really. I mean, I guess I could do ok, but I guess my routing would simply be the cheapest plane trip I could find, maybe get some exotic stops along the way to give them the best traveling experience I could.

......or if you mean which team am I rooting for, I dunno. I never paid attention to olympics. I think America's there? If so, go us!

Reality doesn't care if you believe in it.

Re: 2008 Olympics: Which country are you rooting for?

well, if routing had a different definition, i'm sure all your posts would make more sense. it's rooting. anywho, yea i'm rooting for the USA. we don't host until 2016, in Chicago as someone else said. did anyone watch the opening ceremony? they had quite a show, that stadium was huge (seated 91,000). i didn't get to see who was the flagbearer for the US, anyone know who it was? quite a way to light a torch eh?

Re: 2008 Olympics: Which country are you rooting for?

Right now, America's winning. Last I heard, we have 8 medals; 2 gold, 2 silver, and 2 bronze.

Re: 2008 Olympics: Which country are you rooting for?

I don't understand or see the point of the Olympics. Its just another thing to divide people and distract them from real issues. ( I know I sound like a party pooper sorry) Why does it have to be about winning or losing?

that is the point of the Olympics. once chance to escape all the crap that's going around in the world and use that time to compete physically in a series o sports.

Re: 2008 Olympics: Which country are you rooting for?

I do not watch the Olympics, but I do hope that the UK does well big_smile

I think we have won a medal but apart from that I have no idea how we are doing, as I have not read much news recently.

Re: 2008 Olympics: Which country are you rooting for?

Finland! We just won a gold medal! smile

Re: 2008 Olympics: Which country are you rooting for?

Well done to USA big_smile

That is also funky news about Finland big_smile

I noticed in the paper today that UK have got two gold medals (LOL I have still not watched any of it, I prefer the winter Olympics)

Re: 2008 Olympics: Which country are you rooting for?

Phelps has won at least one more. So 10 total, all time. The most of anyone, ever. And the little I saw of the Womans Gymnastics Final looked promising.

Re: 2008 Olympics: Which country are you rooting for?

Re: 2008 Olympics: Which country are you rooting for?

Americans. They will win... neutral

Re: 2008 Olympics: Which country are you rooting for?

of course we'll win. except China is cheating in gymnastics. so we win in everything else.

I didn't see gymnastics, but my mom did (she's a gymnastics instructor) She told me what happened, but why do you think China cheated?

And who else thinks that men's synchronized diving is a little.......weird......

Re: 2008 Olympics: Which country are you rooting for?

well they're using athletes who are 14 years old, but the age limit is 16. and the USA team did really well, at least deserving a 15.5 and above. but, they barely managed to get that. and most of china's athletes got over a 15.5, even those who screwed up quite a bit.

I think your math is a bit wrong, Draco. 2 plus 2 plus 2 is 6, not 8 tongue

I am rooting for my home country, the USA.
