First of all, let me take back a statement I made the other day…I didn’t quite think it through…I will NOT rival Bob Costas in my updates over the Olympics. I’d like to, but the time zone issue just isn’t going to allow me to do that. Here’s why. I’ve got the NBC channel on all day. Things have already occurred in London that I don’t want to know about just yet. So far, I’ve seen some of the bike race, qualifying events in swimming, and some of the women’s soccer (football) match. What I haven’t seen yet are the men’s gymnastics and medal races in swimming. I believe they are happening right now in London, but doesn’t show on NBC until tonight. DON’T TELL ME WHAT HAPPENS! haha…I’ve already informed everyone here that I will be stuck to the TV tonight from 7-11 pm…so I refuse to watch ESPN or read the internet news. Guess that’ll be my theme for the next couple of weeks and I don’t want to ruin it for all of you, so I won’t update until after it shows in the US. And speaking of this issue, when is the Olympics going to come back to the US and help me out with my problem? Where do I vote??? Olympics in Alabama?? THAT’S SO FUNNY!! We don’t even have a major league team of any kind in this state. One can hope though…
Going back to what has already shown today in the USA, I will say this…as most of you know, I don’t particularly enjoy watching soccer…ahem, football….but the USA is playing
Columbia right now and one of the Columbian players has punched Abby (USA) in the eye, without penalty. She’ll probably be penalized after the match when the committee reviews the tape, but emotions are high and I expect this one to creep into another Olympic event…….BOXING!!
I don’t condone violence or poor sportmanship in the Olympic Games, but they’re trying to take out one of the exceptional USA female players and I predict it isn’t going to work out in their favor….isn’t it sad though, that now I’m watching soccer expecting a fight? It’s like watching a NASCAR race for the wreck!
