the Mens gymnastic for the USA last night, was borderline sad. They looked like their errors really got into their heads, as a team.

I watched the equestrian and girls gymnastic events. One of the girls is a local. And I love anything horsey. They had a couple of spills. One was dangerous. The horse could have rolled over the female rider and crushed her. Fortunately the rider had the good sense to go forward and over the horse's head and away from the body of the horse. Those are one of those split second decisions. The coaches for my 4-H kids were all taught how to fall from a horse. Horses are dumb. They don't see the world like we do. Their eyes are on the side of their head. So they spook very easily.

Thanks, Andy, for putting into words what I have been feeling. We were recording most of the Canadian broadcasts at first, then went to just the highlights and we haven't even watched them. I check into the website each day to see how Canada (and others) has done and that's about it.

Boxing Body Expels Referee From London Olympics

News from The Associated Press

An Olympic boxing referee from Turkmenistan has been expelled from the London Games over his handling of a bout in which the result was overturned on appeal.
That ref was abysmal.

Most kids who get into boxing come from troubled backgrounds. And it helps keep them straight. And then you have refs like this that are willing to destroy their dreams.

Aly comes from Needam, which is just outside of Boston. The town has a HUGE reception ready for her when she gets back home. Her life will never be the same.

I was wathing the men's rafting part of the time. Then I got bored with it. France screwed up. YEA!

There are so many rules that are different from the way the average citizen plays these games. A lot of interuptions, hesitations, etc. I lose interest after a while. Just play the dang game!
