OLYMPICS: Judo my favorite event thus far

I stated my love for Olympic Judo back in the 2004 Olympics. So it was with great anticipation I awaited the 2008 Olympics Judo competition. And now you can watch all the footage online! A-W-E-S-O-M-E!

What do I love about Judo? It’s like two siblings fighting. There’s a lot of grabbing and arms flying around. Sometimes they end up on the floor grabbing at each other. And every once in a great while there’s a dramatic flip. And then there’s the judges who sit on the edge of the floor. I like to think they are the parents.

I just wish they allowed pushing and shoving in Judo. And they should have a door at the end of the floor so the loser can walk through it, yell at the other person, and then slam the door.

In the particular match shown in the image above, the French coach was screaming at the top of his lungs. It’s funny to hear a Frenchman screaming. Usually the French talk in their civilized tones. Not this guy. He was like the third sibling trying to get a good fight out of the two.

It’s easy to become an unlikelymoose member! Above the comment box are a series of three links:

Just click on “Register” and you are on your way to the exclusive club! ๐Ÿ™‚

Apparently it’s not that easy. I tried to become a member by clicking the Register link, but after I filled in all of the requested info and clicked submit, I got a message saying “Invalid Captcha value”. It said I needed to click the back button, then click refresh and try again. I did all of that but I keep getting the same error message.

There is no security word or phrase to type in so I don’t understand the problem. Oh well, I guess I wasn’t meant to be a member of the ultra exclusive Unlikely Moose club.

spud – pmachine seem to (and wordpress for that matter) save the comment fields (name, email, url) in cookies. So unless you’re clearing those out, you shouldn’t even need that bookmarklet.
