Why I Love the Olympics: A Photo Essay

Pre-game trash talking by the French: "The Americans? We're going to smash them. That's what we came here for."

France lead after 7 of 8 laps.

France lead after 7 1/2 laps.

France lead after 7 3/4 laps.

France lead after 7 7/8 laps.

But who won?

The United States.





First place. Gold Medal. New World Record.

Second place. Silver Medal. Lesson Learned.

Au revoir.

A sweet victory indeed.

By the way, you are very luck to live on the West Coast. I am SOOOO tired from staying up so late to watch the Games every night. What usually happens is that around 10:30 I fall asleep on the couch. Then I wake up around 12:00 and have to rewind the PVR to watch what I've missed and then don't get to bed until about 1 a.m. My youngest kid is usually up between 6 and 6:30. So, I'm pooped and am sort of looking forward to the Olympics getting over so I can not be so dang tired anymore!
