Olympics and football chat thread

The draw is already out, but we were still missing a thread for this

It doesn't really fit in another thread since the Olympics are something special and Ernie is part of it

Re: Ernie for gold - Beijing Olympics 2008

I'm sure Latvia has more decorated Olympians than Ernests. His time will come.
