HD tv has done wonders for this thing. I'm now fantasizing about inventing urban bicycle biathlon... We might not get arrested if we used air rifles right?

I believe Edgar Castillo's game will be on Telemundo at 6pm. It's the Monterrey derby between Castillo's Tigres and Monterrey. Monterrey is the defending champ but lost Humberto Suazo to Spain, and more importantly, had a midweek Copa Libertadores game in South America. But they left some of the starters at home during the week - for which they got plenty of criticism.

Goff, you should add Michael Hoyos (18, from California). He started today for Estudiantes against Independiente.

Gold medals are the only ones anyone remembers, so they are the only ones that count. USA, KOR, and FRA are tied with 1 gold medal piece.

Oooo France just slipped by us in the Nordic combined...

ron16: yeah, rest of the world orders by golds...

Why no Brad Guzan for Aston Villa? He HAD been playing the cup ties. If Freidel is being used in the later rounds of the Cup, not so good for Guzan's development -- or confidence.

Why should we care what the rest of the world does? Did the ROTW land on the moon? Did the ROTW invent two polio vaccines? Does the ROTW play a spring-fall soccer schedule?
