Can't modern science come up with a better nose plug?
Maybe a dollop of hot wax in each nostril.

You are leaving out Moscow 1980.
Why let facts spoil truth?
Time to come out of the pool.
Closing ceremonies were last night. All in all I say it was a great olympics - too many commercials though. I hope Phelps makes some good endorsement money for all of his hard work.
If they scoff they have not seen She-Wolf-in-a-Nose-Clip Gemma Mengual snarl her way through the splash in Montreal in 2005
That kind of looks like a simulated shark attack.
Although that she-shark can attack me anytime. Just not in a pool. I drown easily.
That, coupled with 8 large bong hits and a complete lack of shame, was sure to get me gilded.
If not that, then perhaps gelded.
Dear Mr. VanDerLeun,
You obviously didn't watch everything. In the one snippet of the Olympics I saw while at a friend's house (I got tired of commercials about 50 years ago) we watched France and Croatia play a game of which I do not know the name.
It was a combination of basketball, soccer, water polo and hockey. It was played on a court a little smaller than a basket ball court. There were six players and a goalkeeper on each side. The goals looked like soccer goals. It was played with a ball a little larger than a softball. You are allowed some steps, never did figure out how many, then you had to "dribble" the ball - bounce it on the floor. The idea was to throw the ball past the goalkeeper - just like water polo. Hockey? When a player was penalized he had to go to a penalty box for two minutes. Also, as in hockey, the clock went up instead of counting down.
If you happen to know the name of this game - please, please don't tell me.

Handball. It's called handball, and is not to be confused with American "handball" where two players ricochet a small ball off a wall.
You could call what you saw "European" handball.
Oh, Hey! Woops! You said NOT to tell you.
Ha Ha. Too late.

I warned you! Actually, thank you - I'll know how to program the Tivo next time.
