Oh, Boys of Water. That was a tough race. You needed to get your Lezak on, Ryan Lochte. As they say in the Sports Cliches Hall of Fame : That’s why they play the game.
The last two nights of swimming reinforce what a special occurrence the Micheal Phelps performance in 2008 was.
Chris Collingsworth is in London. But appears to be on NBC boondoggle, not actually working.
The women’s road race make great television. Sport and Spectacle.
Cyclists are dropping like flies. But the spectators keep on cheering. Great aerial shots of London, the crowds, the venues, the cyclists and the rain.
While watching the US men’s volleyball game , my husband announced,”I’ve never liked Serbia!” Huh?
Every athlete profile is getting to me, even the one about the investment banker who became a cyclist after the fall of Lehman Brothers. Must be PMS.
I wish I could do the floor excercises just once in my life. I’d like to feel what doing a tumbling run feels like.
There appear to be cheerleaders at the volleyball venues who come out during the breaks. Cheerleaders in London? Who knew?
Dan Patrick and Al Michaels on the same set is my idea of The Dream Team.
I don’t really get Synchro Diving but when those American women learned they won the silver, I became a fan. Great moment for two American girls.
Loving the archery and shooting teams (Way to go, Kim Rhode! And love the Archery Boys!) but those brown jackets have got to go.
Ditto with dull grey medal stand jackets on the swimmers.
Poor Andrea Kramer. Still in the golf shirts. Why, NBC, why? She is such a good interviewer. Doesn’t she deserve a better neckline.
Love the Dana Vollmer Comeback Story. Wow, was the crowd loud.
The Gold Medal for Most Charming Post-race Interview goes to… Brendan Hansen.
Air Maroney is a great nickname.
Aly Raizman’s parents “doing” her uneven bar in their seats was unbelievable. I know I do the same thing when my sons takes a PK, but not on national TV. You stuck the landing, Mom and Dad.
I predict that Lifetime will pick up Gymnastics Moms after the Games.
Aaron Piersol has still got it.
I’m suspicious that all these gymnasts are quite as friendly and supportive of each other as the 27 taped pieces and interviews would have us believe. This is serious head-to-head competition and the sidelines don’t look all that warm & fuzzy.
Wow, that was some heart-breaking moment for Jordyn Wieber captured on TV. Not in Sports Cliches Hall of Fame.
The rules of gymnastics are stupid.
Embracing my Chaos, Lian
