Olympics Coverage

China beat Serbia in women’s volleyball, but what matters is Serbia covered. Also all that crap about giving it your all, and the spirit of the games.

A self consciousness about farting in front large audiences prevented me from going into weightlifting. Admittedly there were some other reasons, most involving my arms, but I attribute it to that one.

Fencing draws you in because sword fighting sounds entertaining, and it probably is, but two people poking each other with a bendy wire is not.

There is women’s rhythmic gymnastics but no men’s rhythmic gymnastics, so it‘s fair to say sex discrimination prevented me from going into rhythmic gymnastics. I suppose if there were men’s rhythmic gymnastics my self consciousness about farting in front of large audiences might come into play as well, but until then I will blame discrimination.

There too many kinds of swimming but not enough kinds of running.

I suspect table tennis participants are looked down upon because their sport is a scale…
