Olympic Track and Field And Volleyball Notes


August 2012

Is it just me, or does Asbel Kiproff need to eat a big steak and a whole mess of garlic mashed potatoes (and some grilled asparagus)? I’d be willing to bet you Kerri Walsh-Jennings weighs more than he does.

Dude, anyone who saw Leo Manzano’s pre-race routine knows that little fella is a weird bird.

Speaking of Kerri Walsh-Jennings and Misty May-Treanor, it won’t come as a surprise to anyone who has read this blog, but I dig women’s beach volleyball. It’s not just the bikinis either (though that helps, rolls eyes). In any event, Misty and Kerri were awesome last night against the Italians.

Usain Bolt is super fast, but as arrogant as that guy acts, I’ll love it when somebody smokes him.  By the way, kudos to the bronze medal judo chick that put the drunk loser in a submission hold until the cops got there – now that’s funny.  I’ll bet that dope didn’t see that one coming.

Andrew Murray’s whipping of Roger Federer in straight sets was awesome.

By the way, a special thank you to Al Trautwig for his over-the-top commentating on the women’s gymnastics.  My rant on the subject, in one week, was my most popular post ever.  My traffic increased about 200%.  Thanks brother.

    I also enjoy beach volleyball. Not sure what it is (not the eye candy; they are not particularly attractive), but I find it compelling.

    Usain Bolt is a ham and suspected of doping. Although in reality, they probably all are. Either way, he is exciting to watch. Just don’t blink when the race starts or you may miss it.

      I can’t lie, the Italians were not unattractive, but I like the beach volleyball because it’s fast paced. It’s just fun to watch… I try not to bother with the “why”, lest I get drawn into a spot where I’m a sexist pig for liking a women’s sport – or I’m a sexist pig if I don’t… Not so much with the guys because most of us get it, but the fairer sex can be quite unfair when you like beach volleyball but not synchronized swimming.

      Two points on the Bolt comment, that man is fast.
