Olympic Fever

29 Jul

I watched all (mostly tortuously boring and occasionally interesting/funny) Olympic opening ceremony yesterday. Rob was spared most of it by doing some homework. He did catch part of the parade of nations. Mind you, we were watching an Australian broadcast. When the US was on they flashed to LeBron James at least 4 times that I counted. Each time Rob let out a low growl or hiss. They are broadcasting all the popular events during prime time, so we’ll be able to see the fun events.

Special bonus points to the first person who can name all pentathlon events.

      Oh yes, I totally recognized her, but I forgot her name.

      So, if anyone cares, the modern pentathlon is: running, swimming, equestrian, fencing and shooting.
