USA! USA! USA!
Gotta admit, it's nice to see the best nation in the world at the top where it belongs.
China had pulled ahead but, the U.S. of A is back on top where we belong.
And we did it without gymnasts who need to have their diapers changed after each routine.
USA USA USA
China is closing in at 79-76. (with a big lead in gold)
I'll check in again when it's over, or maybe before but, is anyone else getting tired of the Olympics?
My daughter and I have been staying up late watching it every night. She likes the track and field and swimming. I figure it happens once every 4 years, so no biggie letting her stay up a little later than usual. Myself, I'm about ready to go take a nap!
I kind of like the back stories NBC does, but I'm a sentimental fool anyway!
Ah, that's good motivation there. How old is your daughter? I can see the Olympics as a great teaching tool. Hard work, sportsmanship (what's good and what's bad), other countries and cultures. How to handle victory and defeat and rooting for the underdog etc etc
I live alone and don't have cable so I can't flip around to "the good" sports at will. Or maybe I've just exhausted my attention span, lol. Well, wish you many happy nights.
