I <3 The Olympics

I just can't get enough. I woke up early this morning to watch the women's badminton final - Zhang Ning of China defeated Mia Audina of the Netherlands. I was thrilled by the historic significance of the shotput competition at Olympia yesterday. I was amazed at the literal and figurative twists and turns of the men's gymnastic all-around last night. Track & Field is just getting started and I can't wait for the marathon!

Here's a link to commentary on Paul Hamm and the state of men's gymnastics in the US.
