Posted on 04/18/14
The recent blog, Peace in the Era of Call of Duty  really made me think about war games that dig deeper than simply a kill streak reward. The first game that came to mind was Spec-Ops: The Line and although I haven’t played it, I began to wonder if it did the war genre as...

That's unnatural and weird and gross. And yet, this sport is allowed to continue.


At the very least, they are given medical benefits unlike cheerleading.

Bright colourful uniforms, people flipping end over end, and so much going on that it's constantly something new on screen, a stoners dream, the same reason stoners love 70's music videos

Canada got bronze after coming second from last in half the swimming events they participated in. At least it's something.

I watched two of the women on the US team live in college.


College volleyball is such a good sport.

Funny how NBC uses their hockey commentators and analysts on water polo. Doc Emrick is an incredible play-by-play man who obviously studied up on the game, but it still feels like they were just like "eh, close enough."

Your streak of taking everything too seriously is intact. Going for the gold?

Of course there's no famous US water polo announcers. (I'm not sure why it would even be necessary for the announcers to be American or recognizable, but anyway...)

I wasn't saying it was a bad thing. Just a funny observation or whatever.

At the very least they need to pair up two former Olympian water polo players and have them do the job.

They've got a former water polo player paired with Emrick, different one for men and women (the men's color commentator is even named "Wolf" because of course). But that they're using a hockey guy for the play-by-play is still funny! Because they're sort of similar! Get it!?

I also saw Pierre McGuire broadcasting from the sidelines (kiddie pool?) and he's also a NHL guy.
