I love the Olympics, but it’s just too much to blog about everything. I don’t have the time or the energy to post about everything going on. So, I’ll be putting up short posts here and there about things blogworthy… but not too much. So everybody just calm down.
In the meantime… a few thoughts.
Swimming: I thought Phelps had totally checked out after Lochte crushed him for the gold and Phelps didn’t even make the stand. Then, in a surprising loss last night by the US men in the 4×100, Phelps turned in the best time of the four dudes and Lochte got caught on the final leg. USA got silver. Maybe this will be a rivalry after all? Here’s what’s crazy. That was Michael Phelps’ 17th Olympic medal, moving him within one of the all-time record. It was his FIRST silver.
Soccer: How ’bout Abby Wambach getting punched in the face on the pitch? WTF. Also, Hope Solo, who I’m a big fan of, needs to shut the hell up about Brandi Chastain. Let her do her job, you do yours.
*update* almost forgot… if you haven’t seen the video of Aly Raisman’s parents. You need to go watch it now… here’s a glimpse of how freaked out they are watching her routine.
