Olympic Observations

Big props to Sammy Sanchez.  That Spanish squad was loaded, but I don’t think anyone was naming Sanchez as a favorite.  The guy rides for Euskaltel, for crying out loud.  When’s the last time they ever won anything on a big stage?

On the women’s side, Cooke’s win was great to see.  She chided the breakaway to work together while she sat in the back of the paceline in order to make a well-timed jump for the win.  Great tactics.

On another note, I can’t help but notice an eerie similarity between Bela Karolyi and Captain Kangaroo.

Captain Kangaroo


and lastly…ZOMG! Dara Torres is 41!!!1!

ugh.  Call me when they discover Jeannie Longo.

    Think you need to add the widget that lists your posts.
    BTW, I finally added you to the roll this morning.

    That Karolyi and Captain Kangaroo comparison is scary!
