Summer Olympics

Apparently the Chinese are pissed off at the French for the protests at the torch relay. It strikes me as rather odd, since there were protests everywhere along the route, except in India where the government decided to close down India to clear a path for the torch. As Booty pointed out, in San Francisco there was a protest/counterprotest to rival the Sharks and the Jets. But the Chinese decided to pick on the French just for the sheer hell of it. Perhaps the US and China can get along after all.

New Olympic poll on the left sidebar.

I think the poll should be, "Which Jiggsblogger are you most excited about?"

I pick Slappy.

The French, in many ways, are irrelevant. That is why China is picking on them (and possibly long-held grudges for French Imperialism in East Asia).

Badminton rocks!!!

Ubie: Woo!

Earl: Yeah, but they have so much in common, like invading Vietnam.

Badminton is great - what other sport would put a parachute on the ball?
