This day in history from:

Frustrating

Got really frustrated (disgusted is the more accurate word but it's harsher, I know) watching our lone boxer in the Olympics lose in the first round of his medal quest.

If that's the best we got, I suggest we don't field a team anywhere anymore and just abandon our sports program. It's just a waste of time and energy that could be diverted to more basic needs of the country.

If it's not our lack of ability, it's the inefficiency of our programs. I don't know but I guess in our contingent to the Olympics, sports officials (and their companions) outnumber actual athletes by at least two to one.

And if it's not either, it will be poor officiating against us. And as docile people, they know we won't complain about it for the sake of smooth personal relations.

If we do have to compete, it better be in sports that we are good at. I suggest we come back to the Olympics when bowling and billiards become Olympic sports. Those two, we are good at. And they cannot be influenced by poor officiating.

Just my two cents.

oh I've been following the Olympic games on the telly and like you I have been very frustrated with our athletes.

I think you made a very good point about the ratio of sports officials to the actual athletes. They should focus more on training and discipline.

haaaayyy....

Side Prayers

PRAYER FOR GENEROSITY
Lord Jesus,
Teach me to be generous,
Teach me to serve You as You deserve
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not to heed the wounds,
To toil and not to seek for rest,
To labor and not to ask for reward,
except that of knowing
That I do Your Holy Will. Amen

THE LAWYER'S PRAYER
May every word I speak be from Your Truth...
I ask come from Your Wisdom...
May every case I handle receive Your Guidance...
May every heart, every life I touch, feel Your Love.

THE JABEZ PRAYER
And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying,
"Oh, that You would bless me indeed,
and enlarge my territory,
that Your Hand be with me,
that You would keep me from evil,
that I may not cause pain."

So God granted him what he requested.
