We’re running out of days…and honestly, when the track and field events come on and I see the men primping for the camera and striking their superman poses, I turn it off. These sports lose their sparkle for me when it turns into someone trying to “cement his legend” instead of just young and raw talent trying to compete against others in the same new boat. I guess it’s like the pros versus college sports. I’ll take college sports any day over the drama queens of pro sports. Now, they’re not all drama queens of course, but the drama that goes on is too much for me to stress about. Watch college sports for the value of a kid trying to make his/her way in the world of sports and you’ll see what I mean.
Now…back to the status of the Olympics. Day twelve found Americans in the final of women’s beach volleyball. That was kinda cool and of course, the reigning champs prevailed again. Misty May Treanor and Kerri Walsh completed their three-pete of Olympic Golds and I believe we got a peak at their replacements on the podium for the next Olympics.
And my goodness, looky here…we have reclaimed our lead in the medal count! GO USA! Only a couple more days to see if we can stay on top…should be interesting!
Happy Bloggin’ Ya’ll!!
