— 1 —B and I have been having fun keeping up with the Olympics. He's a lot more into it than I thought he would be! I think he's watched about every sport that has come on. He likes to whine and moan about some of it, though. I sometimes agree. One thing he hates is swimming. I get this. Why is someone who won a gabillion medals in swimming the "greatest Olympic athlete"? You can win a gabillion medals in swimming because it has a gabillion events. (17 events, I just counted.) But what about those sports that only offer one medal? I personally love women's beach volleyball, and I think May-Treanor/Walsh is one of the greatest teams of all Olympic history. And what about skeet shooter Kim Rhode who has won gold in five consecutive Olympics?

— 3 —Going back to swimming, what in the world is the point of the butterfly stroke? Why would you ever use this stroke in swimming? Freestyle is the fastest, breaststroke is an endurance stroke, backstroke probably has the least risk of drowning . . . but butterfly? To look like a fish? I don't get it.
— 4 —I really enjoyed this YouTube video that shows the evolution of uneven bars routines over the year. Neat, huh?
