The Olympics are awesome

I’ve watched approximately 9,000 hours of the Olympics since they started last weekend. I have a few random thoughts I’d like to share.

- I don’t get synchronized diving. I don’t really have a joke here, I just don’t get it. Synchronized swimming makes sense to me, it’s not a sport, but I understand the need for synchronization. Without it it’s just someone flailing around in a pool, which could give the appearance of drowning. But diving is already a sport, a difficult one, and it doesn’t seem as if any extra skill is needed for synchronized diving. You’re just doing the same dive you would have done by yourself with someone right next to you.

- Alicia Sacramone has inordinately large boobs for a gymnast.

- I want to play team handball. It’s awesome. Not only do I think I’d be good at it, but America does not have a representative in this Olympics because there aren’t enough athletes to field a quality team. Hello London 2012.

- I cannot reveal my sources, but I have access to Michael Phelps’ cell phone number. I think I might send him a couple of text messages. Not so much to congratulate him, everyone’s doing that, but more to make fun of his ears. And mouth. I don’t want him to get a big head after all the gold medals. Or maybe I should send congratulations in hopes that I could get Natalie Coughlin’s number from him.

I'll be on your Handball team. I am good with hands and balls.

Didn't Kami's brother play handball? I think he was hoping to go to the Olympics or something.

Also we keep commenting on Alicia's boobs as well. Maybe that is what caused her to fall yesterday?

I totally love the synchronized diving.

My main concern is why do the boy beach volleyball players not have to wear speedos when the girls have to wear itty bitty bikinis (not that I like the look of the speedo, but it just seems kind of unfair)? and how do the girls manage not to show any crack. Those are my concerns.

Every day I hear how awesome the Olympics are and every night when I turn them on, they're airing some shit like, as you noted, synchronized diving (wtf).

On another note, big ears and whacky nose or not, I totally want to violate that Phelps boy.

I think I should've practiced badminton as a child more ...
