USA! USA!!


I am crying. Not like misty-eyed. Oh no, I am full on crying. And have been through both Nastia and Shawn's floor routines. I still don't know why NBC has Bella rambling on and on in a language I am not even sure he understands himself. But whatever. It's over. And I could not be more excited! It ended just they way I envisioned it. With Nastia taking gold (she's my favorite). They are both beautiful girls and so talented and so sweet. I loved seeing them cheer for each other. OK, I need to stop my blubbering and finally get to bed. I love me some Olympic spirit but sheesh it's on so stinkin' late.

Oh, and as long as I am up late and rambling about Olympics (again...seriously it's all I talk about these days).... NBC, I am over volleyball. Indoors, outdoors, men, women, two people, a team of people. O V E R it. I don't mind watching some of it. But there are all kinds of crazy sports happening. I mean, I have no idea what the trampoline thing involves but it might be fun to watch. Or what happened to rhythmic gymnastics- is that still an Olympic sport? Or any of the myriad of boating events? No more volleyball.

(For Bestie...) If only they would consult us before they did anything!! I could clear this up in a skinny minute NBC. I would like to see some of the other things going on in the Olympics. Some events that I might never know about otherwise. Like trampoline. I have Cirque de Soleil visions in my head, though I am guessing it's not like that. Or is it? I don't know because NBC won't tell me! I can however tell you all about volleyball.

I haven't been watching the olympics at all, but I have been somewhat following it on the news. I too have noticed the overwhelming coverage of the volleyball players. But, while sounding as completely straight as possible - HAVE YOU NOTICED HOW HOT THEY ARE??? I think if I was built like them, I would never wear clothes.

I saw the trampoline thingee in the last Olympics... just a bunch of jumping and flipping and twisting on one of those big rectangular trampolines (like in the movie Big). No offense to any trampoline champs... but I'm thinking these Olympians are people who just couldn't quite cut it in gymnastics - so they're gonna jump on a trampoline instead.

I'm sooo sd it was on so late. I wanted to watch it but I was just too tired to make it that late.

And you're totally right. I met Bella in person and even then - yeah. I couldn't understand him!!

Ugh! Volleyball one of the main reasons I have not been keeping up with the Olympics this year. Every time I turn on the TV it's always volleyball. Give me more gymnastics any day.

We have so been enjoying the Olympics! It's funny how the time zone in China works out really well for live coverage here (though that gymnastics all-around event ran a little late!).

I agree about Bella. He obviously knows a lot and has a heart for the sport, but I don't even think Bob Costas can understand him.

Gymnastics is my favorite thing to watch and it was amazing the other evening! Both girls did a phenominal job!!

Omg...the volleyball is killing me. Enough! I have cried too, but I am pissed Nastia got silver in paralell bars and shawn got silver in floor. Damn!
