Yeah, I gots all wound up 'bout them hoe-lympics. Put me a ribbon on a stick, dug out the old hula-hoop (with b-b's inside!), then went out in the yard jumpin' and twistin' in my underwear. . . .

Doc says he'll have me back on my feet in time for my court appearance . . .

I could watch Gabby and the girls all day!

Since I work evenings, I liked the Olympics because there was something on TV when I was at the gym or getting ready for work during the day. Plus I liked some of the oddball sports you don't often get to see.

You can see those during Fraternity Rush.

Okay... Brad Cook, social worker. I thought the point of a social worker was to be less creepy looking than the people you are taking their kids away from. Will anyone really take him seriously when he tells them how to raise their kids? Get a haircut and a shave.

Maybe the social work he's doing is begging for money in a social setting?

It was cool while it lasted, but two weeks is plenty.

The Olympics are wonderful. Where else can you see those levels of fitness & abilities in so many people in one place? It's interesting to see what kind of performances represent greatness for any given athletic discipline. I am a big track & field fan, but the divers & the gymnasts are always impressive. That stuff looks crazy hard.

Two weeks has sated me for now, but I'm already looking forward to Rio.

Not really. Misty the Volleyball Chick has to start gearing up for NASCAR.

When were the Olympics? I have been living in a sacred tree for the last 4 months eating granola and listening to Messina and Loggins on my solar powered phonograph.

Did the same thing as CWGOKU.

The Olympics were intolerable without DVR this year. There was 5 minutes of commercial for every 5 minutes of Olympics. NBC was awful. Their site was garbage. If you tried watching online there was even more commercials.

I already miss the beach volleyball chicks. Hey, it's raining!

Forget the Olympics. I can eat cookies now.

The Olympics may be over but the Vandal Games are getting started in France again.

I will miss them, if only because it was nice to hear GOOD news every evening. Or at least not-bad news. My only gripe was that our athletes were all wearing prison gray. Bring back the Red, White and Blue!
