I heart the Olympics

I really love watching the Olympics. Really. I wish they had a fantasy olympic team that I could play in. I’m pretty sure I’d dominate. 🙂

Here are a few random thoughts…

1.  Right now I’m watching synchronized diving. I seriously do not understand how they score these things. Every single dive has looked exactly the same to me. They look identical. I know that’s the whole idea of the sport, but who’s going to win? I have no semblence of a thought on that. Thank goodness for the commentators, I suppose.

2.  Why the heck is Table Tennis an Olympic sport?

3.  I am really really really disappointed that the Hamm twins are no longer on the Olympic team. I wanted to hear what their voices sound like 4 years later…

4.  Fencing is the lamest sport to watch. It’s so lightning fast that I can’t tell what the heck is going on. However, that didn’t stop me from crying when Team USA received their gold, silver, AND bronze medals. 🙂

5.  Gymnasts are AMAZING. This might seem a little off topic, but if you’ve never seen the movie “Stick It” you should. It’s hilarious. And awesome.

6.  Another dive just happened. Yep. Exactly the same!

7.  I LOVE THE WOMEN’S VOLLEYBALL TEAM! I’m pretty sure I’d be on it if I wasn’t cursed with being short of stature.

8.  Bob Costas looks like Michael J. Fox to me.

9.  I wish Michael Phelps would marry me. And his mom makes me cry.

Go Team USA!

    So great!

    I haven’t watched any of the Olympics yet, for lack of a television. But after this post, I’m going to see if I can find some stuff on the internet.

    Hey M,

    Mom & I had to eat dinner with a guy and his wife from the UK on Friday. Yes, they know what Irn Bru(sp?) is! Needless to say, the only information I have received about the Olympics is what I just read on your blog! Thanks for watching for us! 🙂

    In an effort to contribute to the release of your befuddlement about scoring the diving…I think the way they score the dives are with points M. Just thought I’d try to help! 🙂

    Love,
    Dad
