+2 = 9!!

Yay, 2 more medals!!  We may break double-digits yet, wheeeeee!!

**break in Olympics talk**

Finished VM S1 and the first ep of S2 (c'mon, I had to see who was at the door!)  Wow, I did not see the Aaron-Lilly connection coming.  And, may I just say, EWWWWW.  Poor Logan.  Girlfriend is killed.  Mommy jumps off a bridge.  Sister gets beaten by bf.  Daddy beats Logan AND had affair with his gf.  Current gf -- Veronica -- dumps him and hooks up with best friend.  Oh yea, beaten up by Weevil's gang and, probably, framed for murder (which he wasn't tried for due to lack of evidence but now half the town hates him).  Dude needs a break.

**back to Olympics**

Looking forward to watching the men's diving tonight and this is really just an excuse to post pretty pretty pictures of Alexandre Despatie.  Personally, I don't think he'll medal -- he's 9th going into the semis -- but I will enjoy watching him, and the other divers, go for the gold.



The placement of the maple leaf really, um, draws the eye, doesn't it?











And just to re-live the good ol' days when the swimmers still wore speedos -- Phelps



Oooo, look, he's got an Olympics tattoo  =)

I watched Alex this morning a little. He missed one dive that I saw. Bummer.

Why can't Ryan Lochte have his Olympic rings there instead of his bicep? It'd be a lot of fun to look for.

Well, I guess that's why he's sitting in 9th at the moment.

hee! If you're gonna put a tattoo there, you've got to show it off!

The time difference is a killer when trying to watch the games. Somehow, I keep catching the same events over and over (I've seen the women's triathlon 3 times now).

Hell, yeah. What a tease!

I'm flipping between the Olympics and Idol. Go Theo!

I "ran" the last 200 with simon... though part of it was also jumping up and down.

I fell asleep last night during the bike portion of the triathlon! Argh!! Caught the race this morning and it was still exciting even though I already knew the outcome.

Also missed the diving semis :( I need to stop falling asleep on the couch.
