First time in my life I've watched dancing horses!!

Dressage - Brilliant!

Gold and bronze for our girls with the French and German surnames, and incredibly, nothing for the German whose horse is named Damon Hill!

I have women volleyball on my TV on rather than watching horses prance. But I am sure I would have had another opinion if our best horse could have been in the competition.... I meant to say best rider.

I am already longing for the next Olympic games. No offence intended to London but the next game will be better. In fact I think there will be class difference. To bad rugby was not included in the London games. Four years is way to long to wait for Olympic rugby matches.

I thought it was clear that Rugby will make all the difference.

You could always offer to make a dish out of your peaked cap. Not that you would need to do it. It would be a safe bet.

Not possible for me to follow taekwondo at the moment. I have the option to watch women basketball or women handball. And in neither game Sweden is involved.
