    Default Summer Olympics 2008

    Well I'm going to put something together and thought I'd get it started...the Summer Olympics this year are running from Aug 8-24th. I will have the thread open, but the odds on some events will "close" as those events finalize. Likely the entire betting will close by the 19th or 20th. I will take ideas for additional events through Aug 1st, and will put up a lot of events, but don't be offended if I don't put yours up as I may not have any idea on odds.

    The 49ers own my heart, but the Chiefs will always hold a better than neutral spot for giving my favorite player a place to leave with grace...

    Just to verify though...

    No athletes lose medals during the games due to failed drug tests

    still stands then. She wasn't stripped of a medal.
