Random Olympic Thoughts

Michael Phelps is simply amazing. A God.

Dara Torres - Rock star mom swimmer. Love her.

If they call that Thorp guy "the Thorpedo" one more time I am literally going to vomit in my mouth.

Women swimmers are strangely built - no boobs, no neck, giant pipes. They could be men with nail polish and glitter shadow. But they are much neater swimmers and cut the water much more cleanly than those messy boys.

The Chinese gymnasts - they all look like 7 years old and were taken from their homes to start training at like age 4....... what is the deal with that?

When is track and field on? I am ready for some running races. And the tri team.

There's been a lot of controversy over real ages of the Chinese gymnastics team. We'll know the truth when they're all still 16 four years from now.

Women always look so graceful swimming ... and go much faster than me with seemingly very little effort ... hate that! :)

I don't think the olympics starts till the athletics. There's only so much windsurfing and archery I can take. Bring on the triathlon. Go the Kiwis!!!

I've noticed that about the gymnasts, too - american gymnasts look like women, full thighs and curves. The chinese gymnasts look like 12-year-olds. As a former high school teacher, I have to say that they don't really look like 16-year-olds.

Funny. Those have been my exact impresions.

Nothing like watching Olympic swimming to make me feel even MORE like a brick in the water!

I told Jeff about the women swimmers (esp. DT)..."man, wish I had a body like that - perfect build, toned, no fat!" But, he only noticed their lack of boob-ness.

Thorpedo's not so stupid if it were you. But he and everyone else did sound like an idiot after Phelps blew them away. Except, of course, Mark Spitz who could not have been more graceful toward Michael.
