You must have felt proud of your country at least for once,  haven't you?

Yes.  Its a long time ag ...

That was great, wasn't? I've never had that feeling.

See how happy we were when they managed to enter the world cup some ten years ago?
Life is hard; it's harder if you're stupid.

I am "looking forward" for a day, when a bald headed guys with baseball bats and chinese flags fill the streets and would beat foreigners. With current benevolent attitude to Han xenophoby it will be soon.

But the Olympics is as boring as sh1t and nothing lasts longer than a few minutes, then you wait for hours for something else to happen. Where is the excitement?

Football is the true game of the people worldwide. Forget what the sponsors and TV have turned it into and just watch the action. It's the greatest sport in the world. So pure, so simple, yet so complex and cerebral. The players are probably the finest all round athletes in the world with their range of skills, power, speed, strength, dexterity, leaping power, what else could possibly rival it as a spectator sport?

Beijing 2008
Country rank by gold medals won (top 4)
1. China - 51

Actually, if you equate medals to population the winner of 2008 olympics was the Bahamas with one medal for every 50,000 inhabitants
