Just a couple quick comments on the Olympics. I’ve been watching pretty much non-stop since the absolutely amazing opening ceremonies. Today I’ve gone to the old stand-by, the 24-hour soccer channel. The only other thing going right now is boxing, and the U.S.’s best hope for a medal just lost because he didn’t know he was behind in the bizarre Olympic boxing score-system. Really, he got knocked down earlier in the bout and got a point.
Regardless, I was just watching the Brazil and Niger, women’s soccer match. Niger was up 1-nil when Christiane first had a header and then a bicycle kick for goals back to back in under a minute.
I also want to throw out some props to the U.S. Men’s Gymnastic (Bronze, from nowhere) and Swimming teams (Gold, from behind). Good work fellas. Now you can stop shaving yourselves everywhere. Hat’s off to the Chinese and French gymnastic and swimming teams, respectively, as well.
I’ve probably seen about 20 or 30 sports so far, and have to commend GE for their coverage. They are making a windfall off this thing, and the 24-hour HD programming is much appreciated. I’ll try and throw up posts when something else cool happens on my TV, but the play of Christiane amazed me, so I thought I’d catch you up to what my TV is playing and what the world is watching.
UPDATE: OMG!! Hat trick!!
