So are any of y'all interested in what's going to be happening in Beijing?

Actually, some soccer (football) games have already been played. Not sure the results of female Sweden vs U. S. or male Japan vs U.S.

Anybody think that fella who is going to try and break Mark Spitz's record of 7 gold medals in swimming will do it? Would be interesting if he won 8 golds in an Olympic hosted by a country where '8' is so special the opening ceremony will be at 8:08 on 08-08-08.

So, folks, any Olympic interest?

Well, I just had time to do a Google search and guess what folks!? -- 1 to 0, the U.S. team beat Japan.

Starting in 2010, the Olympic Games will be complemented by Youth Games, where athletes between the ages of 14 and 18 will compete. These Games will be shorter than the senior Games; the summer version will last twelve days, while the winter version will last nine days. The sports to be contested will coincide with those scheduled for the traditional senior Games, however there will be a reduced number of disciplines and events.

China's historic capital of Beijing was selected as the host city for the 2008 Summer Games by the International Olympic Committee in 2001. Since this selection, the world has been focused on Beijing.

Beijing (formerly known as Peking in the Wade-Giles system of Chinese transliteration) means "Northern Capital" and lies in northern China at the northern end of the North China Plain at about 100 feet (30 meters) above sea level. Not located along a river, Beijing is 87 miles (140 km) from the port city of Tianjin. Beijing has served as China's capital city almost exclusively since the 1600s.
