They're inscribed alright.

I happen to remember the last name of a former sprinter from Madagascar: finalist in the 100 mts. dash olympiads ago: Ravelomanantsoa.
Among their athletes for Beijing, Lalana Randrianantoandro, weightlifter... and there's another Ramanantsoa lifting weights. Then there's Rosa Rakotozafy former African champion in the 100 hurdles + several others.

Madagascar even sent athletes to Turin Winter Olympics.

I'm curious; did anybody pick Iraq? They've been disqualified from the games.

I've decided not to play unless there is a medal for the country which won the 'touch the Torch' event.
The UK won that!!

You get a virtual medal, rhymer, for whatever you are talking about.
So there.
So play.
Welcome!

(BTW, Sister Diane, on the various competitive sports threads, "trash talking" is expected and perhaps required if you want to be respected by some of the other players).

Aha, thanks for filling me in, RJB.

Too bad Roberta isn't on this thread. She and I have an enjoyable game of swearing that goes against everything our parents taught us.

OOps, we'd be banned... Shlt.

Yep. Iraq will be sending 2 athletes.

Fbaezer, I have been keeping a list of folks who indicated an interest in playiing (it might be useful to me in future A2K sports games). Missing from your list of players who have successfully picked appear to be Alex, Foxfyre and Peter. Do they know that they are not in?

I swear there was some dude named Peter who posted here, or somewhere, using the team name Biznitches. Someone even responded asking what a Biznitch was. But I can't find that exchange! Did I imagine that?

I don't know, rjb ... I'm having a hard time getting the picture of Diane and Osso "letting 'er rip" out of my mind.

Checked, corroborate missive from Diane.












By and large (large?), we're laughing, but we're not vocabulary poor.

I had a page of notes, with big bold letters saying FANTASY FOOTBALL. I added all of the recent Olympic players to that page. Dumb.

It was I who said "bitch" at such a person in an oncoming car in a parking lot today. Diane was busy maneuvering sleight-of-car to slipslide away.

Did I ever regale you with my points of view about parking lots? I could go on for pages, or just shortcut with some expletives.


So, what was the question?
