Lol, Moron!

Rowing as in a boat with Paddles, not screaming at your Mrs!  :smiley-laughing:

>:( Rowing is done with OARS  ::)
Its  canoeing that uses PADDLES (my old sport  :'( ) and didn`t we do fantastic in the C1 and C2 slalom
I gotta say I hate the Olympics in general for its cost, time wasting, disruption to our country etc but I did enjoy the slalom  8) 8) 8)

Incredible stuff by the ladies in the Velodrome today - six rides, 6 world records and the gold medal. To set a new world record in their 6 consecutive rides is just awesome :beers:

From someone who wasn't interested at all (didn't watch the opening ceremony or anything), I now can't turn the TV off in case I miss something. Epic performances by Team GB :toot: :toot:

On a whingeing note, my brother-in-law and niece have tickets to the athletics next Wednesday but they get thrown out at 4p.m. That's just pants as they don't see any finals :veryangry2:

Long Jump gold now -  :bounce:

Remote control is red-hot now as I'm flicking between the athletics and the soccer.
