Marcus and I still haven’t watched the Opening Ceremonies yet. I don’t even particularly want to see the parade of nations. Mostly just the performance at the beginning. Though I do appreciate that Team USA was outfitted in Polo Ralph Lauren.
Right now our gymnastics team is just falling to pieces. Paul and Morgan Hamm both dropped off the Men’s team. Sam Pezek and Chelsea Memmel both have leg injuries so they can only compete on bars and the other four girls have to do awesomely in every other rotation because you have to have four scores. We don’t have any we can drop. Add to this the fact that in the prelims, a couple people stepped out of bounds, Chelsea fell off of the bars, and Nastia Liukin landed her dismount from the bars flat on her back. Dear god.
On the bright side, Women’s Beach Volleyball is pretty awesome as are the swimming events and Team USA’s showing in Men’s and Women’s Basketball.
