Olympics Fever

Last week, following mammogram #2, I had 4 biopsies, and so used that as an excuse to stay home and watch far too much of the Olympics for a few days. Admittedly, the ice packs made me look like a bad Dolly Parton impersonator, so staying out of public was a wise idea ;-)

In my fit of Olympics fever, I learned a lot about some of the less popular sports. Observations -- I don't really get team handball at all; the Greco-Roman wrestlers in the lowest weight class are very odd looking (really, quite odd); the head gear for water polo looks like someone lost a bet; and, why don't the male beach volleyball players wear similarly skimpy outfits as the females?? Oh, and since when did McDonald's become health food?

Sue, I hope you're doing ok. I'm glad the Olympics were there for you when you were stuck at home; I haven't seen nearly enough. Thanks for the updates!
