2 posts ago i made some disparaging remarks about the olympics. i'm not taking them back, but...

i just watched the entire 2 hour:26 minute:44 second (winning time) of the womens' marathon. i love that they showed the entire race live. i love that a romanian won. it was very dramatic. and beautiful.

ceausescu, you may have been one of the all-time assholes, but your people are awesome. (the ones who made it through all the nightmares.)

people = good. gummits...not so much.

the 3000 meter steeplechase is awesome, too.
like i said, i loves me some track and field.

Women's gymnastics has also been fun as has the swimming.

i just got REAL worked up over the final men's swimming relay. yelling and cheering. the whole bit.
marathon woman: superhero.
as was that british woman who just kept trucking even though she was clearly at her body's end a way long time ago.

I ignored the opening ceremonies and all the broo-ha-ha until my daughter lured me in. She kept calling and texting until I gave in. I haven't changed the channel since.
