And, let's all of us pause for a moment and give some recognition to Rebecca Soni. She stomped all over everybody else (in a really tough race and in her first Olympics) and was contrite and self deprecating afterwards. That there's a true Olympic athlete, kids.
I can't watch beach volleyball any more. Every time I see it, I start laughing about what Mama D said about it. And can't stop. So, I have to change the station. At the risk of offending her, I'll share her words of wisdom with you:
We are enjoying the Olympics too--well, all except that stupid beach volleyball crap. Why do they insist on showing that when there are legitimate sports out there? Who wants to watch two women with it all hanging out, slapping a little ball around a sandbox? There is true sport out there folks!Makes me laugh every time I read it.
No more Michael Phelps montages, please. And I don't want to hear any more about his double jointedness. Or his 'flat backside'. Seriously, they just said that on the tv. Hilarious.
I can't watch the women's all-arounds either. I just can't. The night terrors.
