    Anyone else disappointed

    In the performances of our Olympic athletes?
    Swimming not yet as dominant as expected, Basketball, we suck, women’s gymnastics, most talented team in the history of the sport, choked to the point the GOAT Biles said, no mas and quit the team competition. Softball, all pitching no hitting. They were lucky to win 3 of the games.
    Bright spots, the Jacoby girl from Alaska, both golds by the skeet shooters, the bronze in womens triathlon, silver in women’s diving.

    Not really surprised.

    It's not a coincidence that the actions of the Kneelers and Protesters have rubbed off on the USOC as a whole.

    It's not about competing for one's country any longer. Narcissism has prevailed.
    Pissin' in the wind, bettin' on a losing friend
    Makin' the same mistakes, we swore we'd never make again
    And we're pissin' in the wind, but it's blowing on all our friends
    We're gonna sit and grin and tell our grandchildren


    Jerry Jeff Walker, RIP


    I'm gonna live forever
    I'm gonna cross that river
    I'm gonna catch tomorrow now


    Billy Joe Shaver, RIP

      However the womens 3 on 3 basketball loss to Japan is of no consequence, as they were 6-0 and had the #1 seed for the knockout round locked up

        Last I looked …. We had the lead in metals…..swimming is just the old guard getting old….if we would have done this in 2020, you would have seen more metals….but they’re still doing fine. I remember when we were fourth behind USSR, East Germany and China …. Who were all cheating trolls….

          Not very disappointed. You have to be interested to be disappointed.

            Think swimming and women’s gymnastics is what I really expected more from. Softball was a disappointment, but Japan team is really fast.
            just see we won a gold in surfing. HTF do you judge that.

                            Especially when you have a GOAT embroidered on your tights

                                    That gal winning the gold in tai kwon do the other day was pretty cool.

                                      Swimming has been a bit disappointing, but then again the GOAT swimmer isn’t competing…Lochte is 97 years old…Ledecky hasn’t competed in her strongest event(s) yet. We’re winning medals, just not golds as anticipated.

                                      I was really happy for the young Alaskan gal. It’s the time of eternal sun up there now; I’d hate to see how pale she gets in the winter! It was nice seeing her HS classmates cheering for her.

                                        Just an observation, but the Russian women's gymnasts... have they always been this good looking?

                                        Seems like I remember they had beards back in the CCCP days.
