    This seems to be a good thread to ask this question. When can we expect the form charts?

    I'll put short money on the government wising up and announcing the Olympics being moved to mid-September (the news of which must happen by Thursday morning, NYC time), and reallocate their vaccination resources to cover as much of Tokyo as they can, to prevent even the remotest possibility of an Epsilon strain being created there; and if the IOC and NBC make a big stink about the postponement, Suga can tell them to kick rocks...

    ...But such as it is right now, from that campus alone, the Delta strain could end up mutating into Epsilon, Zeta, Eta and Theta variations by Halloween, depending on where the athletes come from and where they end up carrying the virus, if they contract it.

    Not that they will but once they determine they won't it gets late to start something new.

    We do. Mason Finley is a defending discus medalist. Valarie Allman is a gold fave in discus. Maggie Malone is a medal contender in the javelin.
    Tell prognosticator Atticus. That makes 43 medals.

    Project 30? I'd take that bet.

    One other thing. I'm trying to be conservative in my estimate of USA T&F medals, but keep coming up with 40!!! Should I get back on my meds?

    Despite all my unrelenting negativity and pessimistic outlook on virtually everyTHING, I'm sure that once the Games begin, I'll be super-hypocritical and watch them and cheer my favorites . . .

    GH - Is TFN going to publish a detailed time schedule of the Olympic schedule or is there a link to one that converts to local time of the person viewing? This has normally been published by now but my searching so far has come up empty.

    I absolutely want the best athletes to win, wherever they're from, but this is an American web-site, and I am a Murkan, so there's always a 'we' aspect.
