Is it me or the producers purposely make Russians look better than Americans?

BBQ Crawl

Watched this show for the first time last night.
Travel Channel's BBQ Crawl : Travel Channel

It was interesting. She reminds me of a female (Guy) from Triple D's

Anyone watching the Olympics? I receive NBC Sports second cable channel covering the Olympics. It's usually live, whereas NBC's prime time coverage is sometimes taped.

I've been sampling it all. I'm into indoor volleyball matches since I played organized and beach volleyball in my youth. I've been catching a lot of live volleyball and other live Olympic events on NBC's other sports channel. I think it's called NBC Sports or something.

Volleyball is the number 2 sport in Brazil. No wonder the arena has been packed with spectators for volleyball matches, both men's and women's.

I watched the equestrian events, diving for men and women, and the golf for men. That's about it. I prefer the winter edition.

I watch the diving, swimming, and gymnastics. Don't care for volleyball.

I've also loved the volleyball, especially the beach. The swimming and girls gymnastics have also been favorites. I care nothing at all for the track and field however.
I'm ready for it to be over now though.

Oh yeah, I forgot about the gymnastics. I used to do them as a budding teenager. When my granddaughter was taking dancing, she was quite young. She had a hard time mastering the cartwheel. My daughter was stunned when I did a couple of them. I worked with my GD and in just two days my GD was doing cartwheels like a pro.

Well, I was a durn good swimmer at one time. My claim to fame is I have saved the lives of four people, and I'm really proud of that.

An athletic sock has more in common with the Olympics than I do...did watch Biles in gymnastics, she's so cute and confident.
