What's with all the neon yellow shoes the runners nearly all seem to be wearing?
I read that although there has been a lot of criticism of NBC's coverage of the Olympics, NBC says that ratings are up, so they can't be doing that bad of a job. Newsflash: NBC IS THE ONLY NETWORK COVERING THE OLYMPICS. WE HAVE NO CHOICE. It's either watch your mediocre coverage or miss the Olympics entirely!
Normally I do not like the idea of men shaving their body hair. They're men. Men = hairy. However, there was a male gymnast from China who was doing his floor routine, and I could not help but notice the big shock of black, fluffy armpit hair every time he raised his arms. So I hereby rescind my opinion against all men shaving their body hair - gymnasts are now exempt from that rule. Shave away.
Speaking of male gymnasts, I always thought their uniform/costume/whatever that they usually wear when they do the "rings" was kind of silly. Remember when we ladies used to wear the stretch pants with the "foot loops" back in the 80s? Why not wear shorts? Or comfy "pants", like scrubs/nurse uniform type pants?
The Daughter was watching the Olympics in the afternoon the other day (when they televise some of the less popular events). The equestrian competition was coming on (which I don't think the Daughter has ever seen before), and the commentator was going over the course with the various jumps and water features. Then the horses come out and I hear the Daughter say, "Oh, I thought people were going to be competing on that course!" Lol....
I find it hard to watch the diving without worrying someone is going to hit their head on the board or platform after seeing Greg Louganis do it like, a hundred years ago in the Olympics.
I think Bob Costas is going to be the new Dick Clark. He's starting to look like he never gets any older...but in a weird way.
Are you watching the Olympics? What are your thoughts?
