With the summer Olympics starting, are you pulling for a certain sport? An athlete that's your favorite?

I seen a girl from Poland playing ping-pong without a right hand... she lost sadly, though.

Man, I'm seeing updates on stuff I never even knew they had Olympic Sports in. So, I went to look up some of the lesser known events .... women's weight lifting, badminton, canoeing, handball, judo, sailing & shooting.

Missy, I was surprised Phelps came in 4th too.  My husband had told me that from what he'd been reading that Phelps hadn't been training as hard as he did for Beijing so he wasn't surprised.

I was shocked that the men's team from China fell all over the place in their pommel horse and "swinging" on the horizontal bar (not sure what that's called but Luke kept saying they were "swinging!").  One guy also almost fell on his face after his landing when he was tumbling, flipping & jumping all over on the big white sqare.. not sure what that's called either... lol. 

I think I texted Tracy to tell her Lochte had one 2 golds but I think he's only got one... I heard he won one then watched him win one but apparently they were the same one!

I was coming to report that Ryan Lochte won a gold metal but that fire looks awful! I'm glad everyone got out, well except the cats...how awful!

Too funny...when we were watching the opening ceremony, we were talking about the swimmers and Ash told me she liked Phelps and thought he was hot, but heard he was not training as hard this go round. Then she asked about Lochte and I told her I thought he was way cuter than Phelps! But, she still thinks he's hot....LOL
