There's something not-right about sitting on a comfy sofa, munching on pistachios, and drinking a scotch; while watching a top gymnast two-step the landing, and shouting "aww, he blew it!".
That's why they are Olympians and we aren't.
We make them more elite by being who we are.

The first Olympic games were held in 776 BC in Olympia. (Greece, not Washington.) The first modern Olympic games took place in 1896 in Athens and were officially called "Games of the First Olympiad." Here is a brief history of the Olympics – and it answers the burning question, "Was there nudity at the games?"

Seeing "wooped" reminds me of a classic movie: A Fish Called Wanda

Otto : You know your problem? You don't like winners.
Archie : Winners?
Otto : Yeah. Winners.
Archie : Winners, like North Vietnam?
Otto : Shut up. We didn't lose Vietnam. It was a tie!
Archie : [going into a cowboy-like drawl] I'm tellin' ya baby, they kicked your little ass there. Boy, they whooped yer hide REAL GOOD.

Apparently the Canadians wooped the Americans @ soccer and now play for the gold.
We won the gold over Sweden on penalty kicks.

FIFA should be ashamed that they allow a playoff game to be decided on such a stupid method of deciding something. This is not the first time this has happened either. Let them play until somebody scores.
