@ehBeth,
Has anyone ever thought about setting up a webpage to track the daily scoring?

Several years ago, I came across a free Perl-based Fantasy Football commish program called RoboCommish. I might be able to customize it for Fantasy Olympics, if I have any free time...

Hi, Wheel158. Welcome to you and your friends.
I tend to make rules and things up as we go along. "Plan A" assumed we would get only a handful or two of players. I could keep the scores.
If we get more than that, I would propose "Plan B." The players would be divided into leagues of about 6 or 8 teams, competing against each other on that level. They would, of course, vie for the overall championship but would win minor laurels for winning their league.
The magic of that is that I would recruit someone in each league to be its scorekeeper. Pretty cool, huh?
It would be nice if you found a fantasy scoring thing, though.

Here is what you need to do to participate in our game. The deadline is Tuesday, July 24.
Choose 2 teams from Group A: Australia, China-Men, China-Women, Germany, Russia, United Kingdom, United States-Men; United States-Women.
Now choose 3 teams from Group B: Belarus, Canada, Cuba, France, Hungary,
Italy, Japan, Netherlands, South Korea, Spain, Ukraine.
And then choose 5 teams from Group C: Argentina, Brazil, Czech Republic,
Denmark, Georgia, Jamaica, Kazakhstan, Kenya, New Zealand, North Korea,
Norway, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Sweden, Thailand, Turkey.
Finally, choose 5 teams from the rest of the countries of the world. There are too many to list. If you google 2008 Summer Olympics Medal Count you can see all of the countries that won medals the last time. Choose any 5 but they can not be those listed in Groups A, B or C.
Good luck!

George
