Next week, she enters high school as something even more extraordinary: an honors student who plays violin and likes to rollerblade. (AP Photo/A. Hayashi/Loyola University Health System)

This same little faggot was in a picture not too long ago. IIRC he was standing right next to an IDF guy aiming his weapon towards some Palis. Anybody else remember this?

Maybe he was trying to surrender. IIRC, in sabre, anything above the waist counts.

That's a 'guy'?????

I actually watches the first couple of innings very early this morning (2 week old daughter wouldn't sleep).
I think that actually the Greek team is a better looking team than the US. The greek team is actually made up of mostly (maybe all) Americans of Greek descent. The Greek American girls were a lot cuter than the ones playing for the US national team (theres a couple of monsters on that team- but obviuosly they are the better players.).

That may be, but consider that he is right handed (look at the jacket, it closes on the left hand side), this would make his right hand covered by the guard of the weapon. Putting the point of a saber on the target (hand) and pushing it there hard enough to break the weapon, making a sharp end to push through the hand. Points on sabers are rolled, making a round tip, which is difficult to make stick on a target. But the frog is lucky . . . it could have been his chest or his gut which took the blade, not just his hand . . .
