The Olympics were such a great experience. I hope all of you had the chance to watch a lot of it. I was watching sports that I've never watched before, just because it was the Olympics. I'd never usually watch badminton or team handball, but I did over the last few weeks.
Wasn't Michael Phelps just amazing? It was pretty cool to be sitting at the Brewhouse watching his last gold medal win, and everybody in the bar was cheering for him. I think his Olympics was the greatest athletic feat I've ever seen. How do you follow that up?
I even watched the gymnastics. How about Alicia Sacramone falling apart during the team competition? That was horrible, you had to feel bad for her. If anybody can explain how the tiebreaker in the event finals was fair, please explain it.
The Redeem Team was pretty impressive. It was nice to see the US basketball team actually care about playing for their country. I guess the embarrassments of the last few years are now in the past. They finally played like a team, instead of an all-star collection of good players. It does make a huge difference.
I can't wait for London in 4 years!
This post is in direct response to the Silverbacks-Rochester game last night. After watching that debacle, I now hate soccer and don't want to talk about it for a while. Horrible...
