Oh my gosh...are you as tired as I am? All this Olympics watching is really interfering with my quality sleep time!
I FINALLY saw some rowing today. Michele Guerrette won a silver medal in the women's singles event. 1st time since 1982 that the US has medaled in this event! Go Michele!
Of course, I was at work and as the men's pairs were about 1500 meters down the course we got a call and we we came back water polo was on. Figures.
Speaking of water polo...those folks are tough. They are swimming or treading water the entire game. Cool.
Earlier this week I might have mentioned that I was not so fond of beach volleyball. Here's my beef.
There are 302 events in 28 sports. When they are showing swimming we watch different swimmers swim different events. When they are showing track and field there are many different athletes competing in many events. Rowing-same. Weightlifting-same. Gymnastics-same. There are some team sports that don't hold my attention much, baseball, softball, basketball, soccer, etc. But even in those sports the teams are large.
Beach volleyball. IT'S THE SAME TWO GIRLS DOING THE EXACT SAME THING. OVER AND OVER AND OVER. And it's on TV ALL THE FREAKIN TIME!!!
Okay, I'm done.
I did enjoy the badminton. And the cycling was neat although I don't really understand the track racing. I'm like most of the rest of you, I've been watching Micheal Phelps every move. I'm watching the women's marathon right now and it's pretty cool.
So...what are we all going to do when this is over? Sleep.
