The USA gold rush is on....

He wasn't an "unknown" to the wrestling world. He is considered to be the future of USA wrestling. But he was not expected to take home the gold in his first olympics at the age of 21. Most olympic wrestlers don't come into their own until their late twenties. The thread kinda spoiled it for me since I didn't get to see his last too matches. I was worried because he didn't look dominant in the two matches I saw last night. Glad to here he pulled it out. I will have to watch the matches online today at work.

The USA gold rush is on....

"I think I speak for everyone outside of America when I say NOBODY CARES!"

Then why did you read a thread called "The USA Goldrush Is On"? I understand that the American Olympic results may not interest you. So, just don't read the FPP. The fact is, you choose what converstations (or threads) to take part in. If you are not interested move on instead of telling people to talk about something else.

"The supposed greatest democracy in the world is being beaten by communists. HAHAHA!" Did you say something about a distinct lack of class?

First Class?

The first class got it right.

Mike Piazza decides to retire after 16 seasons

You still need to lift weights even if you are on steroids. If you don't work out you just get fat.

Rangers forward Avery Hospitalized

He did get rocked at one point and flipped over. I hope he recovers to further annoy everyone in the league.

Georges Laraque goes more than the extra mile

I can remember seeing him pass pizzas out to students waiting for tickets, and Passing out food at thanksgiving, in particular. But Debo is right, he is always in the news her in Pittsburgh for helping out the local charities. Get out the brooms WWGRD

Iron City Blues

I'm actually coming out of my boycott this year because the Buccos actually invested in some of their talent this offseason. They didn't hand out crazy Jason Kendall-like contracts. With new management all the way up the line and what looks to be like some sound investing, they just might turn the corner in the next few years. As long as it looks like management is trying to improve the team, I will pay to see them play.

Steeler announcing great dies at 79

We'll miss ya Myron. What a shame, he defined Steelers broadcasts for so long. I will never forget "this is Myron Cope on sports."

Good on him. Nice story. Seemed like an appropriate way to raise awareness. Although, appropriateness is objective.

1988, Year of the Card

I believe the '87s were the wooden background ones, and '86 had the thick black bar with team name at the top. Think Barry bonds rookie for 86. '88 also featured a McGwire all-star rookie card which I should have sold.

Adam "Pacman" Jones

"Wow, another notch in the crime-belt of Pac." Actually, I don't think the authorities have even issued a warrant yet. Seems to me this really doesn't hold much water. I think it is an attemp to further smear Mr. Jones for some reason.

Adam "Pacman" Jones

I find it hard to believe that an NFL player failed at numerous attempts to lunge and inflict bodily harm. The Best blockers in the NFL can't hold a block forever but somehow the Strip club security was able to fend off Pacman and his entorauge through numerous attempts. Maybe those guys should try out for the Falcons. Something wreaks of shenanigans here.

Double Amputee Can't Run in Beijing Olympics

The difference Fly is that all of those examples you gave are available to everyone. Not everyone can put those blades on their legs. If they do infact offer a mechanical advantage, then it is not fair. "Some individuals with the legs Oscar has can barely get around, let alone run." This has nothing to do with competition. I'm very happy for the guy, but I have to agree with the decision.

Seattle defeats Washington,

The Steelers blew it. I know the refs had some bad calls, but you can't throw three interceptions and expect to win. Ben is a stand up guy, and he took the brunt of the blame, as he should, so don't bring up past comments by the guy that you clearly can't comprehend.
