I have actually had to root against the United States women's beach volleyball players at times because they are not properly attired. When Kessy/Ross played Argentina the other night, Argentina was properly attired so I almost rooted for them.

Those gymnastic chiks fil-a through the air with the greatest of ease. Am looking forward to track & field.

Happy August to you, too, CeeDub. Only one more month 'til Charlie starts to ressurect Jayhawk football. Talk about your Olympian tasks...

Watched the synchronized diving event in which I thought I was at a plumbing convention. More crack showed which I mentioned on my facebook page. Some ladies didn't like it like me. I did have a few ladies say they enjoyed everything.

I like to watch womens weightlifting. Especially the snatch and clean jerk parts.

The year that Xtreme Full-Contact Spelling Bee becomes an Olympic sport will be the year I start watching this hoo-de-doo.

Watched some women's water polo today. They had an under water shot and one member of the spanish team grabbed the suit of someone from the American team, and lets just say there was a good half second to full second of a full boob shot on national television.

Hey, Agno: Those signals are highly critical to beach volleyball and I wish people would stop making light of them. I'm glad for the close coverage of them. The closer, the better. It's kinda ironic: catchers show show their signals in one place, beach VB gals in quite another. I know which one I like better....
