So this Jamacian guy, Usain Bolt, is the fastest man on the planet, ever!! He won the 100 Meter in a laugher. He was celebrating 20 meters from the finish line. He broke the record, easily. He could have set a mark that would have been a record for the next 20 years if he wanted. Watching him run was simply amazing.
I watched SportsCenter tonight and they were comparing 40 yard dash times. I'm not sure the 2 examples they used, but the fastest at the combine this season was around a 4.2. Anyhthing there and quicker is about as quick as the NFL gets. If Usain Bolt had run the 40, his time would have been around 3.6. Not a misprint, 3.6!!!!! Somebody teach this guy to catch a football!!!!
The speed this guy has is just absurd. It's effortless. Just amazing that someody can run that fast!
I've never been into the olympics like this. Maybe it's the old age that's made me appreciate them a little more, or maybe it's because I have much more time to watch it? But I have really enjoyed the olympics this year!
Oh, and Bolt set a record in the 200 today too. They're showing the replay in a couple of minutes here, and I'm sure he's going to look effortless, but it's going to be great to watch him run.
If there is a downside to this years' games, it has to be the judging. I'm not a judge. I don't claim to be. And I've watched diving/gymnastics/boxing exactly 1 time in the last 4 years, but this judging is completely ridiculous. I don't even want to get into it, but it's been terrible. It's shocking that the 2 American girls won the gymnastics all-around?? It's been real bad. And it needs to be looked at before the next games in London.
And yesterdays/Monday's US-China baseball game was quite a game. 5 US batters were pegged by Chinese pitchers. 3 guys were ejected. The Chinese catcher was destroyed at the plate by one of the US baserunners. And in the bottom of the 9th, said catcher acted as though he had hit a 10 run homerun to win the game for the Chinese. When in reality, he made the score 9-1 in the final inning.... I didn't see the game, only heard about it, but I really hope that the next guy up got pegged. Imagine if that was a MLB game? Imagine if the game wasn't played in China??? Anyhow, something else I don't really want to get into...
In conclusion, the olympics have been awesome!! I'm really going to be depressed when they're done. That flip that Nastia Lukin does on the balance beam and then lands on one leg is f'n amazing!
The 200 final, that I already know the ending to, is on, so I have to get going!! Enjoy the rest of the olympics!!!
Oh, and the Indians suck, and the Browns looked horrible the other night. That's all I'm going to say about that!
