Diary for Wed, Aug 18

(Note: Almost all of these diary entries get thumbed out on my blackberry as I sit on a media bus from venue to venue so please don't be too hard on my spelling and grammar - that includes my mother who is reading these posts and probably cringes at each spelling mistake).
It's hard to believe I've been here for only 5 days - it seems much longer. Luckily I have a very supportive wife, Kate, back home with my 10 month old twins who I actually saw via webcam last night! It was nice to hear some "Da Das" and "Uh ohs" from my kids before my son tried to eat the camera. Thankfully our families are helping out while I've been away but it's tough I'm sure.
The morning started late after our popular appearance at the Heineken House on Tuesday. I say popular because we were with Claudine who was a duet Canadian synchro silver medallist from Sydney and she has dance moves that rival her performance on the water. Ask her about the "truck driver" dance move if you ever run into her.
I made it to the slalom men's canoe finals for some lunch time shooting and even managed to catch Canadian kayak gold medal hopeful David Ford doing some pratice runs before his Thursday race. It's quite the atmosphere at this venue with crowds sitting on a hill side with their giant flags observing this wonder of an athletic facility.
I hurried over to beach for the 2:30 men's match and assembled my massive 200-400mm long lens that I borrowed from Nikon. It's certainly not the easiest thing to hold with just your hands and I felt a bit like a rank amateur next to the guys with the monopods and even bigger telephotos lenses (most guys have at least two or three cameras with them).
The match against the aussies started out poorly for the Canadians with Julien Prosser (a personal friend of the guys) blocking a ton of balls. Mark Heese looked visibly out of sorts after yet another roof bounced off him. I decided after that game it was time to lose the photo bib and join the Canadian fans in the east stands. A few cheers of OO AH Ca-Na-Da seemed to help as they bounced back in set 2 (a game win that probably guaranteed them a spot in the rounf of 16). The mojo-less game three seemed to feature Canadian weakness than Australian prowess but hopefully the Canadians can go back in time to find that special something before their next playoff match.
The women were a different story coming out strong against the Norwegians (a team they had never beaten) but they'll need to close the match faster when and if they face the top seeded US or Brazilians (Canada had 7 match point chances).
The night was uneventful and I even managed to get to sleep before 3 am!
I even bought the film Avatar for a SMS to http://rsskino.ru/kinofilm/avatar.html , the link was, but download fails, the system will boot quite strange cocoa something.
Men, advise where to normal as quickly download film avatar?
