Say what you want about commercialism and politics, but I still love the Olympics.
I've never seen any greater drama.
Or more genuine excitement.
And this is only the trials.
Also, I'd like to thank NBC for streaming everything live on the Internet. I'm actually looking forward to their coverage for the first time.
You know, every once and a while I delude myself into thinking that I could make a swimming trials qualifying time if I dropped everything in my life and focused on training. Then I look at the times of the slowest people racing. So maybe, if I dropped everything in my life and focused on training, I might be able to make the women's qualifying time... assuming, of course, that they made that cut slower by about 10%.
Ah well, a man can dream... ummm... of being a fast woman.
