Ah, O'Connor's out, but Gregory Bretz got into the finals. Just saw the youtube video of Shaun White's perfect 100 halfpipe back in 2o12. Wow and wow. (I can see youtube if if shows up in the Guardian)
One of the reasons I tend to like the guardian bloggers commentary is they're basically nutso, which makes the commentary fairly lively. Also, this comment notwithstanding, they tend to be sympathic to all.
Here's an example -
"There are those days. You wake up. You’ve slept through your alarm. You step out of bed. You stand on a phone charger. You hobble downstairs, You put the kettle on. You discover there are no teabags. You put toothpaste on your toothbrush. You stick it under the tap, The water pushes the toothpaste off. You get dressed. You look down at yourself. Your T-shirt has a huge curry stain on it. You change. You put your coat on. You can’t find your keys, you can’t find your keys, YOU CAN’T FIND YOUR KEYS.
The US team have been the equivalent of that sort of morning through the medium of curling. Finally, though, they pick up a double in the fifth end, reducing their arrears to 9-3."
