I've gotta tell ya, folks... I enjoy the Olympics!
Yesterday American Serena Williams literally demolished fellow American (*GRIN*) and cute blond Maria Sharapova... who was actually representing Russia... though she's lived in the U.S. since age 7.
Serena played some of the best tennis of her life and totally dominated the little blond girl with the cannon camera and cute little puppy dog... and then - unfortunately - she "celebrated" with a bit... (umm...) too much exuberance. Still, though, nothing to get too hot and bothered over. She is who she is and came from where she came from... obviously "the moment" put her on auto-pilot and frankly... I can't blame her.
Today of course Scotsman Andy Murray made history by soundly thrashing Roger Federer (perhaps the greatest tennis player of all time) at center court Wimbledon to win Olympic gold for himself and for the United Kingdom.
GOOD FOR YOU, ANDY...!!!
Back to yesterday... Russia got the best of our men's volleyball squad. (I caught the early games at the gym while doing my workout.) Disappointing... but those Russians are tough! We'll just have to see how the race for the medals works out; certainly Team USA isn't out of it yet! Indeed, we could still win the gold!
Anyway... besides watching the Olympics... yesterday was BBQ day at Colleen's where we celebrated Kenny's and Kevin's birthdays and remembered Colleen's late dad who would have turned 75 today. (I of course made my kick-ass "heart attack potato salad" as well as my - if I do say so myself - awesome turkey burgers.)
