  • Skipvia, we've been having a lot of fun with the Olympics commentators (and using DVR to get through the HOURS of ENDLESS interviews with the SAME PEOPLE over and over) by stealing their conversation.

    Today, for example, we're asking everyone we know if they were aware that when horses have to jump over water, it's tricky gate placement to have a turn before it. There's no way to build up momentum. They only have six or seven strides to build up momentum and get over that water, which is 13.75 feet across. Did you know they have trouble building momentum when there's a turn before that gate? Also, did you know if their feet touch the water OR the white tape, it's the same deduction? It's unfortunate because they really have trouble building momentum before that water jump when there's a turn right before it. That's tricky placement, before a water gate, to put a turn there.

    They have trouble building momentum.

    Did you know that Dara Torres is 41?

  • When she turns 42, she's going to have a lot of trouble building momentum. Especially if there's a gate involved, because it's the same deduction no matter where her feet fall in the water.

    August 18, 2008

  • Right. Because she only has six or seven strides to build up momentum and get over that age.

    August 18, 2008

  • And there's a turn right before it.

    August 18, 2008

  • Especially if there's a gate involved.
