We plan to watch the opening. I'm not a sports person, but do enjoy watching swimming, (both synchronized and lap), diving, gymnastics. And just found out today from an article in the local rag, they have women's wrestling. Had no idea.

And CWS and Hoot, I was on a couple curling teams in HS, and while it was a lot of fun, I can't remember the rules....

Having worked with 4-H kids and their animals, I love to watch any and all equestrian events. And we have a local girl on the gymnastics team this year.

Looking forward to the Opening Ceremony.

But, first, I'm learning some British Slang with Hoda & KLG

Cheeky! Who knows English slang better: KLG or Hoda? - KLG and Hoda

Heh. Think it's Greco-Roman. One of our midwest woman wrestlers was caught with a bit of the ganja in her system, so another from around these parts will be replacing her.

What the heck is Rulon Gardner?

Just burst into tears seeing Mohammed Ali, the progression of his Parkinson's disease is just terrible.

Sad. I missed it. I remember when he lit the torch at a previous Olympics.

He really was so handsome back in the day.
