Did You Know?

There's this guy named Michael Phelps, have you heard of him? Apparently he's a pretty good swimmer, but I wouldn't know because I'M FOLLOWING THE FREAKING OLYMPICS IN CHINESE TAIPEI! Bloody hell. They've been replaying Chinese Taipei's loss to Japan on two channels all morning, and there loss to Hong Kong in ping pong on another channel. Just learned from CNN that Future Wheaties Cover Boy Michael Phelps just won his sixth gold medal of the games, and 12th overall.

Wait...Hong Kong has their own Olympic team? Well, that's good news. When Mr Ma gives Taiwan back to China, maybe Taiwan's athletes can finally compete under their own name.

The baseball controversy at the moment involves the scheduling for the Chinese Taipei team, who lost to Japan last night, and is now playing the Mainland team this morning. This is a problem because the Chinese will be well rested, and the CT team want an insurance excuse for doing poorly. Nothing Nothing in the top of the 4th.

None of this changes the fact that the Atlanta Braves suck.
