Didja See That??

Curly and I have been hooked on the Olympics this year. Well, I am hooked on them every year, this year is the first that Curly has joined the insanity. We have loved watching Michael Phelps win gold after gold. We've cheered on May and Walsh as they dominated on the sand. The synchronized diving has been awesome, and we were sad both times as the American teams were left off the podium. One of the most exciting times by far was last night watching the men's gymnastics. They lost their two major stars, the Hamm brothers, to injury before the games and had to play two alternate gymnasts. They weren't expected to medal. After some amazing routines (mainly by Jonathan Horton), they clinched the bronze. It was thrilling to watch. You can read more about it here.

I can't wait to see what action awaits tonight. I just hope it doesn't go as late as 1 am again...

I love the olympics. Phelps is the greatest hero on earth. Seriously. He's the man. I love the beach volleyball as well. Did you watch Usain Bolt, the sprinter from Jamaica? He's so fast. He was jogging at the end of the 100m and still got the world record. Then he jogged at the end of the 200m and still won the semi.
