Hi all. I'm back. What'd I miss? Ha. I was paying attention. Apparently 11,000 people are competing in sporting events in China, but without cable I was able to watch only one. Let me say I think Michael Phelps is outstanding. I think media coverage of Michael Phelps sucked. Dear NBC: every other swimmer in that pool also spent nearly every day of their lives in the water, deserving their own moment in the spotlight. But every 'caster just had to ask every athlete they talked to about whether they'd maybe gotten to touch the sacred hem of Phelps swim trunks.
Oh well. I tivo'd the Olympics while I was away and spent a good deal of today looking through the stuff I missed last week.
On NBC's enhanced coverage through our DirectTV I found this little gem. It's an isolated camera on Usain Bolt's "stride" and "celebration" in slow motion. Ladies, you'll notice if you watch to the end of the short clip that Mr. Bolt doesn't wear any impeding undergarments that reign in his "celebration".
Ben had to tell me to quit looking.
