LOOK OUT FOR OUR NEW MULTIMEDIA WEB SITE! IN THE MEANTIME, ENJOY OUR WATERCOOLER CHATS: OLYMIC UPDATE, PACMAN JONES

Olympic Updates:

Alain Bernard (France) won the 100m freestyle swimming event (surprised, well, you shouldn’t be, Phelps did not race in this event).

Yang Wei (China) won the men’s all-around gymnastics gold.

In basketball, Spain won its match against Germany 72-59. Many thought Spain would crumble amidst the controversy over the photo ad of the team in a Spanish newspaper. The completely insensitive and idiotic ad showed the Spanish team pulling their eyes out in an apparent attempt to look like the Chinese players. The controversy was not reported by the state owned media in China, so there was no uproar in the crowds that watched the game.

NFL News:

Adam (Pacman) Jones mailed a letter to NFL Commish Roger Goodell asking for full reinstatement to the League. Jones was granted partial reinstatement in June which allowed him to work out at the Cowboys’ training camp and play in pre-season games. Jones has been arrested 6 times with 12 police intervention incidents. The most recent incident occurred in February, 2007 at a nightclub in Vegas that led to the shooting of 3 people. Cornerback Jones was traded from the Tennessee Titans to the Cowboys in April 2008.
