I love it!!!!!!! I am afraid of the criticism that will start flowing through.........
I hope everyone sees it for what it is. People who know how to enjoy themselves.........What a better occasion than when your team wins!!!!!!

I like seeing the royal interact. It must be nice not only to see the games in person but to reunite with friends and family from other royal houses in more of a laid back environment.

They seem to be among the few watching these games. In most of the photos the seats behind them are empty.
No matter what, she shows up with her orange scarf and looks like she is on top of the world. Way to go Maxima!

Did you guys see the Americans beat the French in the men's 4x100 swimming relay?

You can view the whole thing on nbcolympics.com if you missed it. One of the BEST recoveries I've seen in a sporting event. You can beat that joins countdowns about the greatest moments in sports history!

That was so great! My mom and I were up watching it and we were both screaming "Go, go, go!!" I was very pleased that I had seen it, as it was all over the news. I usually miss moments like this.

Yes the American recovery was very good - tough on the French tho, but thats sport isnt it?!

I'm really well and truely ready to see a medal ceremony - we havent had one on tv yet. NZ has yet to win a medal bec there havent been any rowing finals yet, nor sailing I dont think and we screwed up in equestrian; and they dont seem to show us medal ceremonies for other countries (e.g. for swimming we get ads instead!) which infuriates me.

I will be (trying to) follow the rowing, gymnastics and swimming in particular.

I really wish there was a TV deal you could purchase that offered 24-hour Olympic coverage and you could get a special remote where you could choose a country and a sport and you would get full coverage for that sport when you wanted. So if I wanted to watch the USA swim team, it would show me those events, but if I wanted to watch, say, Sheikha Maitha or Princess Nathalie, I could switch to the UAE or Denmark's events and see that!

Does anyone know when Maitha and Nathalie compete? Or have they already had their events? NBC has provided zero coverage of royals, so I was hoping for a glimpse of one of these ladies!

Oh, I was looking for information on Nathalie's Olympics page, and I found this really sweet!
Why this sport?
The sport is a family tradition. (FEI 07/07/04)

Most influential person in career
Her father because of his support. "I could not do this without him." (FEI 29/06/04)

Superstitions / Rituals / Beliefs
She always wears two of her grandmother's necklaces. (FEI 07/07/04)


Does she mean Queen Ingrid's necklaces? And I think it's sweet to say that about her father! Richard and Benedikte must be so proud of her! And I like the bit about it being a family tradition!

You can find a short written story here, and the full story (clip) is (I would say) likely to be posted here later in the night.

He said that the family had spoken to President Bush and he said that they felt Bush genuinley cared, and that the President had ensured the best care was available for Barb, his mother in law who is now in a serious but stable condition.

The interview was done last night.
