Wow!
China is just blowing everyone out of the water in Women's Fours Rowing. They won by nearly 40 meters - race is 2k meters total. INSANE.

We got our asses kicked in Men's fours.
And I'm really sad I missed archery. It is my favorite events. :(

Wow.
Also, rowers have very strabge looking bodies. They look like peanuts with toothpicks attached because they're all back and thigh muscle.

The event I alway love is the mile-run.

My seventh grade science teacher competed in that event in the 96 Olympics. He didn't place. :(

HAHA, slow bastard!

I ran the mile in high school in just under 5 minutes and thought that was pretty awesome for the stoner kid :) I was flabbergasted to find out professional peeps are running that shit in like 3 or less.

My fastest mile us like 9 minutes. That was like last month. In school, I never got under 12 minutes. Slow fatty McChunkypants.

Pre-surgery I probably couldn't do a 12-minute mile :P Post-surgery, I can't even walk fast :P

Also, watching the rowers row is just incredible. So careful with the angle of the blades as they go in and out of the water.

Yeah, the precision of professional athletes is amazing. There is a grace there that we just don't see with daily events like Car-Door Opening or Latte Stirring :P

Hey, I'll have you know I"m Olympic quality with my latte stirring. I"m still working my way up the ranks in milk frothing though.

Dude, that Milk Frothing is some hard shit!

For Woman's Archery the Koreans won. I didn't catch the Men's.

I don't care who won so much as watching the shots. I always wanted to be an archer. I used to be pretty damn good at it.

I just watched women's synchronized diving. Really? Synchronized diving is an Olympic event?

Seriously though, I was completely enthralled.
