Loving the Olympics

Something about this years Olympics has had me mesmorized. Maybe because I'm getting older, maybe because I just enjoy sports more than I did when I was young, I don't know. But I've watched most of the Women's Volleyball matches (well, the US anyway), all of Michael Phelps races, and spent plenty of other time watching other events (including a good chunk of the women's marathon).
I'm not sure if it's the story lines, or just that the US has become fairly dominant in a few events, but it's something. Perhaps because people like Phelps, or May-Treanor and Walsh are so good, that you just have to watch. And stepping away from the US, Usain Bolt is inhuman. That guy is ridiculously fast. I'd love to see what he could do if he truly finished out a race instead of letting up.
Anyway, the Beach Volleyball finals should be on soon, so I'm off to go catch that!
