    I have to admit, I was pretty impressed with the womens boxing on a whole.
    Cleressa Shields of the US is an absolute beast for 17 years old, she beat a women almost twice her age with a lot more international experience 19-12 to win Americas first gold medal. Also USA's Marlen Esparza took bronze at flyweight, not too bad that 2 of 3 US women boxers medal.

    Honestly, how do people in the US feel about the officiating in the Canada/US women's soccer game?
    Everyone in Canada is fuming mad about it.

    I didn't understand the call on the goalie holding the ball too long. That was the call wasn't it? Seemed like a strange call. The handball call was probably wrong, but it happened so fast that I can't really fault the ref. Those players were all jumbled together and in fast motion it looked like a hand ball. Slow motion seemed to show it was an elbow but I'm not real sure if that's allowed either. I would say Canadien fans have a legitimate complaint but I also think the hand ball was just too quick to really criticize. The other call was strange indeed.

    Well, I guess that answers Spider's question about Phelps then. Guess he should have just asked Bolt.

    Being the fastest moving human ever has to count for something. I'd definitely put him above Phelps.

    Sweeping two Olympics and having a carefree/lax dominance puts him above anyone I've seen.
