Gymnastics has always been a sport that I’ve admired (and completely sucked at), due to the fact that in order to do well, you have to be able to do a LOT of stuff – uneven bars, balance beam, floor routines, etc… (perhaps I just admire athletes in sports I competely fail in: gymanstics and hockey).
So I just got done watching the women’s all-around competition for the Beijing Olympics, and I wanted to congratulate Nastia Liukin (middle) on her gold medal, and Shawn Johnson (right) on her silver medal. I guess I should congratulate Michael Phelps for all of his medals too. And congrats to all the American Olympists!
So, again, congrats to Nastia and Shawn (and Nastia is from TEXAS so that makes her awesome)! The only thing that would make me a bigger fan of these 2 is if they were Republicans (and if anybody can find out whether they are or not [Shawn isn’t of voting age, so I doubt she’s too involved], you become my favorite reader of the week!).
