Awesome night for US Olympics!!!


If you haven't been watching the Olympics... well... join the club. I haven't either. The boyfriend records them all day then stays up all night watching the events in fast-forward. I can usually stay awake for about 10 minutes.

Today I got a little more in to it...
We woke up late today so I watched a little bit of men's volleyball...
Then I needed a nap today so I watched a little swimming and more volleyball.

We went to dinner at Buffalo Wild Wings and saw part of the swimming competition... which means I got to witness Michael Phelps completely BOMB the 200 butterfly, the race he has won gold medals in for the past two Summer Olympics. Well when I say bomb, I mean he got silver. I might have been calling him a lousy piece of shit.

After dinner I landed my happy ass in the living room to watch gymnastics.

and got to see this...

Russia was in first place and we were the only team left to do our floor routine. Aly was the last one to perform and she only needed like a 10-something out of 16.
Before she even finished her routine, she was crying. She knew she stuck her landings which meant the they got the gold!!
The ladies were very gracious winners!!
Incredible sight to see!!

Then I got to watch the relay that would give Michael Phelps his 19th medal.
I say this like I was there or something. Afterall, watching all of this on a 120" screen helps...

I was pretty pissed to see him get silver in his previous race. I mean... I hold our Olympic athletes to the highest of standards!!!
So now Michael Phelps is the most decorated Olympian of all time. 15 Golds, 2 Silvers, and 2 Bronze... and he still has three races that could land him three more medals!

Now that I have given my Olympic Commentary I will shut up.

But it was pretty awesome...
