    Am I the only one who is upset that Wrestling isn't one of the most broadcasted events in the Olympics? It seems like Judo and Wrestling take a back seat to everything else even though they are the most exciting sports. Also, wrestling was one of the first sports in the original olympics.

    Wrestling, Judo, weightlifting, and boxing are the only ones that matter to me.

    Fuck the rest!

    Teddy Atlas and the two other guys who cover boxing are awesome. Insightful but also very funny and entertaining.

    yeah, I've been enjoying their commentary.

    For some reason, last night I was enthralled by lens gymnastics last night :o it started seeing the Japanese guy fall off the rings the way he did, then I was just amazed what those little guys could do with their bodys.

    Teddy Atlas is awesome. He's the most honest commentator out there. He won't hesitate to voice his negative opinion if he knows it's popular and correct. He's the first guy to talk about how lame the amateur scoring system is, the first guy who will make comments about poor judging, and the first and probably only guy to make comments about 'silent contracts' between fighters.

    Him and Max Kellerman are my favorite voices in boxing.

    Olympic boxing is a farce though

    at times, the scoring seems so arbitrary
