trophy watch: dropping a deuce on beijing’s olympic medals

Fabulous tennis blog Forty Deuce is up in arms that the Beijing Olympic medals look cheap, but I disagree. I really appreciate its minimalism. And instead of going with metal chinese coins, the medals’ designers went with a stone (jade) inlay. Nice touch.

By the way, I am waiting for the blog that’ll document all the engrish signage in Beijing for these next two weeks. My aunt stayed there a few months ago and said that there are some crazy babelfish-esque translations…

Edit: Mikey send me a link to the ultimate in translation fails.
