Who are you rooting for at the Olympics?

Personally, I'll be rooting for Dennis, Asgarov, Burroughs, and Dlagnev.
I am the way, the truth, and the life.

Cox, Burroughs, Snyder and Dennis

Snyder.  Rode on the elevator next to him at Nationals.  Nice kid.

I'll be rooting for Team USA.  Besides that, just happy to be watching quality wrestling.

Not counting US wrestlers:

Icho - all class, love her approach to the sport.
All Mongolians - because they bring it and are a blast to watch
Bonne - see Mongolia

Outside of US

Franklin Gomez and Jaime Espinal for my Puerto Rican friends

Khinchegashvili so I don't have to see Rahimi or Lebedev win Gold

Yadav because of everything he's been through

Sadulaev because he is just so much fun to watch

And of course a special place will always be reserved for Kudukhov who was one of my favorite wrestlers of all time, possibly the greatest who will have never seen olympic gold.
Topics Falcon doesn't know anything about- Cars, Binary, Accounting, and 13th Century Polish Literature

So far the US isn't doing so hot.  Hopefully the women will kick things off.

Haley lost to Tosaka in the 1/4's.  So we need Tosaka to win the semi to pull Haley into the repechage.
