Olympic Finals

Missed much of the games and missed getting updates here because of the Doc's but here are the medal finals: Athens Olympics

The US lead with a total of 103 medals with The Russian Federation next with 92 total - China was second in Golds and third overall with 63 (Gold-US 35, China 32, Russia 27).

Most importantly is that no matter where your from and win or lose they were great games successfully executed - thank you Greece!

On the NBC coverage front (of what I was able to see) I loved the diving and swimming commentary but thought the gymnastics commentary was really lacking. Somewhere along the line they made the decision to assume we knew what was what - and maybe we do on some things, but most of us only watch every 4 years and as we all know memory fades.
