crazy olympics

with 3 comments

dag yo, first off – congrats to james blake for defeating the current #1 in the world, roger federer.  i was so surprised when i saw that.  if you don’t know how huge this is, james blake has only won one set against federer in his life and he takes him down in straight sets.  he just took down the most dominant player in men’s tennis.  it’s huuuuge!!  although i was looking forward to a federer/nadal final which would have been sweet.  but anyways, go usa!

i’m really digging this volleyball action.  it makes me want to play.  freaking misty may-treanor and kerri walsh are tearing it up on the beach and i just saw the men’s indoor tearing up bulgaria.  man, i wish i could hit the ball that hard.

i really wish they would show some men’s basketball on nbc.  but i’m glad they’re doing a good job as the “redeem team”.

did you hear about the georgian beating the russian in judo?  or something like that?  crazy.

and then the guy who got bronze in greco-roman wrestling threw his medal away because he felt like he was jipped and from what i hear he was.  dang man, these olympics getting crazy.

p.s. you like how i started off saying that i wasn’t all into the olympics?

  1. I know that you don’t care about Charlotte, but did you hear about Cullen Jones? He’s sort of a local hero around here these days.

    I usually don’t get too excited about the Olympics either, but I was watching the US women’s doubles table tennis team (2 chinese born in China but American now) and sabre fencing, and was really getting into it! =P

    What an exciting summer (besides studying)

  2. Man olympics….I’ve been watching on nbcolympics.com like crazy. My roommate also DVRed like all these events. The swimming events are insane….Man the men’s relay was amazing. Yeahhhhh Cullen Jones! ssssss.

    I’ll turn on the live web stream while I work. Watching stuff like fencing, weightlifting, archery, shooting. Synchro diving is also mad crazy yo! I wish I could do a half spin double whatever whatever into a something arch and make it into the water without splashing much.

    Wouldn’t it be great if some divers got up and just canon-balled into the pool on world television?!

    Sign…I’m going to take a break from olympics this weekend….
