That was just a great catch by Corey tonight. I can't wait to go to the game this Wednesday with my mom. This is going to be her first game in the bleachers. I also convinced her to take the early train in so we can watch batting practice. Schweeet.
The Olympics are fantastic. I was up early Sunday morning to take my sister to O'hare and I didn't go back to sleep. The Olympics were just too good. Oh man how about that women's marathon? Wow! Not only did I cry before the race when they were doing the story on the history of the women's marathon in the Olympics, but then I was also crying when Deena Castor was running the final straight-away in tears. Oh man I'm such a cry-baby. But good god damn that was amazing. Getting to watch her come up from 19th place and then finish the bronze. Just amazing.
I'm watching the men's high-bar event right now. Why so much controversy? Too bad Paul Hamm didn't in the gold, but I have to say that Igor Cassina's routine was more impressive, but then he didn't stick his landing as well as Paul. I'm torn on whether I think they should have given it to Paul or Igor. Really just some lameness with that whole changing of the score nonsense.
Speaking of lameness. I am very disappointed with NBC's HD coverage of the Olympics. Yeah yeah it's all beautiful, but why does it have to be delayed a day? And why do they pick just two events of the day and then loop it over and over again. So after four hours you've seen everything already, and of course if you watched on NBC SD the day before, then you saw it even before that. And fuck what is with the reject announcers? Why can't they just use the same announcers as the regular broadcast? I guess it's so that every five minutes one of them can say, "and you are watching the Olympics in high def on NBC." Fucking lame-ass. I want Bob Costas. That is the worst part of all. How can you have the Olympics without Bob Costas. The only redeeming quality is the lack of commercials, well...unless you count the Sony Wega commercial that they play every single break, mixed in with commericials for NBC's two new shows. And don't forget the stunning fly-bys of Athens that are repeated over and over and over and over and over and over again. NBC, you can suck my fat one.
