As I said, before getting my pants ripped by a rabid gringo dog.
"Good going. Now we have 14 complete teams. That is more contestants than in some olympic events.

Yes, although I'm sure they expect to do better in the Winter Olympics.

I wonder if the Vatican will ever field a team.

They'd have a bit of an unfair advantage, don't you think?

I'm trying to stop myself from making team name suggestions. So far so good.

Reminds me a quote from Full Metal Jacket:

I guess if Jesus wanted you over that obstacle he'd miracle your a** over it! Now move it!

Let's be honest ... we can never have too many Gunny Hartman quotes in this thread.

Realjohnboy, after meeting you in person, I was certain that you were a gentleman from Virginia.

I'm so disillusioned.

Tak, nothing happened while RJB was here, that is why I was so surprised to hear of his "other side." I'm still so shocked! Sob...

Jespah, what about the Pumped Popes?

Warnings!

FOM2020 (Aka "Tocayo") is SUPPOSEDLY an expert in Olympics. I happen to doubt it :wink:

Fantasy silver medalist from 2004, markr, PM'd me. He says he's "making some research". Scary.

I still think George's method is the best: ...catch... the tiger... on... the toe...

I just had a thought .... if the Lichtensteinians or Madagascarites don't end up fielding an Olympic team this go round, will I be penalized?
