I bloody hope so.

Currently looking like I've have a fairly quiet July at work (design team is miles behind so projects won't be ready to commence come 1st July).

I'm planning on spending a lot of time in front of the TV.

Anyone know what Cambage said to the Nigerian player? According to Bogut it was pretty bad and cannot be repeated

Couple of points here.

I am an Olympics fan, so while in lockdown there may be at least something to watch on the box.

That said, I think its a stupid decision to hold them while the world is still in this state, just asking for trouble.

Given the lack of Wada testing in 2020, do we think the athletes were "on the gear" all of last year, and are off it in time to not be detected in competition?

If so, I'd expect world records to be smashed these games.

Agreed. They should delay them till next year IMO. Bonus in that the soccer world cup won't be till the end of the year so the Olympics can take place in the middle of the year without a clash.

Agree 100% and feel the same with all those points.

I still remember to listening to the Atlanta Olympics on ABC radio trying to get back to Adelaide from Broken Hill in time for my daughter's premature birth in 1996 in the middle of the night, were a freaking godsend that night, was prepared to listen to any sport!
Loved the Sydney Olympics and religiously watch all Olympics but the fact this one is going ahead is one of the most ridiculous things I've ever come across.

Bit of Karma there if you read the reports. We left our highest ranked and best rider out, and this guy was ranked 1013 and has links to one of the selectors with sponsorship.

Not too many worth looking at from what I saw today.

There's 23 birds going into the mansion tonight, channel 10 at 7:30 tonight. A couple are worth a look.

Good win by Matildas over New Zealand. Dominated the game and should have won 3 or 4 nil. Let in a goal late with some sloppy play. Olyroos play Argentina tomorrow night .... that will be tough, but I hope they have a crack.
