While NBC isn't showing Volleyball or Diving, (so, basically never) they are showing track and field. If you're anything like me, you've noticed
I'll admit it, when I'm watching running during the Olympics, I totally try to figure out how far / long I could keep up. For example, the women's marathon started at a 5:40ish pace. I probably have 4 miles at that pace in me. For the women's 800, I likely could keep up for 300 or so meters at a 4:00ish pace....maybe. The men however are a completely different story. For almost all distances I can barely keep up at all. Which means to be an Olympian I either need to train like I've never trained before.....or grow a vagina. At least then my junk wouldn't bounce in slow motion.
I couldn't keep up with Bolt for 10m
As I was complaining on twitter about how I am finally to the age that I could never compete at the Olympics, many people mentioned that there were lots of sports for people at my advancing age (31). In fact, there is a horse rider from Japan who is 71. SEVENTY ONE!! Hiroshi Hoketsu is the oldest participant in the London Olympics. So, that is my new goal - to figure out whatever horse riding sport this guy is participating in, steal his supply of Ben Gay and his crossword book, and take the gold in the London 2096 Olympics!
Doesn't even look that old. Hiroshi Hoketsu doesn't look old either. Har har har
Finally, this has nothing to do with the Olympics, but my son figured out what headphones are the other day. I can only imagine he'll now turn into one of those skater kids who wears a stocking hat 24/7, wears velcro shoes, and even has headphones in while taking a shower (no he wont - at all).
