Random Olympic Notes

- I have real trouble staying up until midnight to watch. So I missed what may prove to be the most exciting moment in the entire games, the U.S. victory in the 4 x 100 freestyle relay. Oh well. It's not as if they're showing it live or anything.

- I don't get synchronized sports. Diving is an improvement over swimming, but I still don't get it. No disrespect intended.

- Alain Bernard? Welcome to the annals of all-time sports losers. Tough break, dude. Should have kept your big mouth shut. Or won to back it up.

- Yeah, those girls on China's gymnastics team are 16. Not.

- My patience for judged sports wanes with each Olympics.

- Beach volleyball? Not that exciting.

- Michael Phelps, you get my vote for Sportsman of the Year.

- Can't wait for track and field.

The synchronized diving is pretty random, all right, and yet I was completely glued to the set (as I am for most weird sports in the Olympics).

And as long as Misty May and Kerri Walsh are playing, I'll keep tuned to beach volleyball.

Yeah, that's the thing - I'm watching too, even as I'm sitting there complaining. Hard to resist.
