You Didn't Watch Anything?

Well, almost.

When was the last time an Olympics was on that I didn't watch any of it? Actually, I don't know if that's ever happened, but I was certainly close today. I watched some of the track events as I bopped from place to place during my vacation, and I actually did sit down during the afternoon and watch taekwondo for about 30 minutes. I even saw some rhythmic gymnastics.


Yes, I really will watch anything.


However, since I was busy relaxing, I didn't get around to taking any notes, even if I would have been in a position to have taken them. I did see the men's 4x100m relay and was once again amazed at Usain Bolt, but that was on the restaurant's TV, so I couldn't hear what they were saying. I'm going to assume that Tom Hammond told us something like, "It was a run for the ages." Is it sad that sometimes I don't even need to hear the commentary to know what each announcer is going to say?




There will be stuff on Sunday, though. I DVRed the Closing Ceremonies so even if I don't see them... ahem... "live"... I'll still be able to recap them on Monday when I get home. See you then!
