Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

NOT an Olympic gripe!

Kenny Smith makes note of an interesting bit of information:

Auburn's current tally of four pool medals would rank sixth on the swimming nations list behind the United States (25), Australia (12), Japan (7), the Netherlands (6) and France (5).

Kirsty Coventry has dominated. She now has a gold in 200-meter backstroke, silver inthe 100m backstroke and bronze in the 200m individual medley. Meanwhile, George Bovell captured a bronze medal in the men's 200-meter individual medley. Several other Tiger swimmers have had high quality finishes as well. [...]

You know, I wouldn't dare gloat should Auburn's folks beat the French. Because that would be wrong.

As for Miss Coventry, I DO wish she was competing for the U.S. instead of her own country of Zimbabwe, but I'm still glad for her nonetheless. Good article on her efforts here, as well as the obligatory link to her photo and bio.

War Eagle and all!
