    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Olympics!

    Alright, so, if you've never heard me go on about how much I love even the effing idea of the Olympics, you can check out the long version here:

    http://www.thefightnerd.com/did-you-...-is-next-week/

    The short version is "SPORTS you lousy so and so's." Watch people do things simply better than human beings should be able to.

    Anyways, we got five conventionally defined combat sports on the Olympic roster (boxing, fencing, TKD, wrestling and Judo) and one thread to discuss them.

    I'll start with wrestling. The reason why I made special mention of Clarissa Cho in the linked article is because I was interviewing former medalist Sara McMann and Cho was her pick for team USA in women's freestyle wrestling.

    Afterwards I did a little research on the 105er that McMann was so big on and I might just be a believer that she takes home a medal for 'murica.

    I love fencing, but Olympic fencing is so fast, its hard to tell who scored what when you watch it on a screen.

    I can't help but think that a few of these were absolute gimmes. What brackets are you looking forward to most?

    Honestly, any which has good Judo. I'm just hoping that the new rules will ensure we don't have a repeat of the appalling spectacle of 2008.

    I'd love to see Iliadis and Riner do an ippon streak to gold. I'm also excited to see who pulls it out of the bag in -73s, because I really think its anyones to take.

    I really hope Decosse finally wins gold, she's missed out so many times and is running out of time.

    I am determined to learn the rules of Judo so I can enjoy it this year. I'm tired of only watching TKD and boxing.

    Wait, there's rules? I always had plenty of fun just watching the fancy throws.

    I like that too, but then I become confused and enraged by when the action stops, or someone says a japanese word that means nothing to me. It's not the sports fault, it's me.
