Sunday August 22… LEE DongSoo and YOO YongSung won silver in the men’s badminton doubles. I like saying their names. Only Estonians have more vowels in their names.

Saturday August 21… Trampoline. crazy, fun sport. I don’t know how this sport came about, but I’m sure it was the result of a drunken discussion at a sports bar. We need more Olympic events created as a result of intoxicated conversations. Though trampoline seems to be missing something. They should be forced to juggle […]
Friday August 20… Oh man, I can’t remember the name of the event where big people throw a heavy ball as far as they can. I’ll call it Heavy Ball Toss. The event was held where the ancient Greeks held their Olympics. Bob Costas was giddy. He loved the symbolism of having a 2004 Olympic […]
Thursday August 19… Prime Time featured gymnastics and swimming… AGAIN. Is track and field starting yet? Though it was good to see the USA have an excellent day. Gold was flying around everywhere. 11pm-midnight. Bravo Channel. I don’t understand Bravo’s 33 minute obsession with sailing. Can someone explain that to me? Andrea wanted to see […]
Wednesday August 18… I missed alot of the Olympics action last night because I got sick (yes, I missed Judo). I had Taco Bell for lunch and Andrea brought home Tierra Grill for dinner. I risk potential stomach illness by eating at Taco Bell alone, but it seems having two Mexican meals in one day […]
Tuesday August 17… I was all pumped to watch Judo on the Bravo Channel from 11pm-12 midnight. They wound up covering Sailing from 11-11:30. Now I’m a big fan of the lesser known sports in the Olympics. But Sailing was incredibly boring to watch. (And I used to watch Home Shopping Network as a kid […]
Monday August 16… Judo! Judo! Judo! I love Judo. It is my new, favorite Olympic event. They look like brothers fighting. They don’t want to throw full swings and put the other one in the hospital, but they want to knock the other one down and show dominance. It kinda reminds me of bears fighting, […]
Sunday August 15… There’s only so much of gymnastics that I can take. And it’s only day 3 of the Olympics. Though there is one fun thing you can do while watching. Make different swoosh sounds for each event. I find that pummel horse is the best. Whoooooosh. Whooosh. swoosh. shwoosh. shooooooosh.
Saturday August 14… Andrea came up with a nice cheer when an American (or your favorite country) does something good. You pump your fist in the air ala Tiger Woods and say “Good Fun”.
Every day of the Olympics I will post a comment or two. I’m already a few days behind, but I’ve been keeping notes. It’s just a matter of uploading them. Enjoy. Go Estonia. (The cartoons you see in the header are Pheros and Athena, the mascots of the 2004 Summer Olympics… weird, but better than […]
