    ooh that was an exciting 100m hurdles! Pearson was soooo happy aww

    Too bad Lolo was fourth, I like her. The other American ladies who medaled were adorable in the interview, too.

    Damn. Oh well. Congrats to Pearson; that was a GREAT reaction. Aussie Aussie Aussie Oy Oy Oy! Always like to see a country get its first gold medal in any event.

    Congrats to Harper and Wells, and next time LoLo!!!!!!!!!!!

    I like these two. Harper seem so jovial about her silver; it's nice to see happy runners, especially considering she's a former gold medalist.

    Behind again. Do the Chinese gymnasts look bigger this year? They seem to actually have shoulders this Olympics. In Beijing, except for Cheng Fei, they all looked bitsy. Now they look like they might have some muscles - small though they be.

    He won't have a voice left to commentate with in a day or two.

    Nice to see two such happy medalists, especially one with a silver.

    Yea...I feel bad for Lolo. Her season started rough but she made it a long way. She might have gotten a medal if she had a few more weeks.

    It seems that the elite athletes find each other and become friends. Last night, Serena Williams said in an interview that she was good friends with Ryan Lochte. (And then made sure everyone knew that it was just friends. )

    For some reason, I've found him annoying, too. I can't put my finger on why, though.

    No, they know parents of little girls will only let them stay up so much longer than their bedtimes, and the real fans will hang on to the bitter end to see one routine.

    Well, Weiber's still an Olympic gold medalist. She was absolutely FAB in the team event, and I hope that's what in time she's able to focus on. I also love that Weiber messes up but goes STRAIGHT to cheering on her team mate.

    STUCK!!!!!!!!!!!

    We were updating our Rolodex at work and our receptionist called a guy named Dick Fosbury and said "Like the Fosbury Flop?". He said, "Yeah, That was me.". Apparently he's in construction in Idaho now.
    Yep. He is the main force behind the running? Biking? walking? trail all around Sun Valley. I saw him in 1968 at the NCAA championships when the Fosbury flop was new. We all thought how wierd/cool it was at the time.

    We also saw Jim Ryan in the mile. At the other end of the spectrum, we saw O.J. Simpson set a world record as part of the 4X100m. relay team.

    Ok, the better-half and I have made a decision: Mr. Raisman is a DILF.
