    The Olympics is about more than gold
    Medals and that awful and pointless medal table. It's about the little stories of inspirational young and driven people who strive to better themselves.
    True...so many compelling stories...love to hear them and the feelings of inspiration. One of our other networks used to cover the Olympics (ABC) and in my opinion did a more compelling job of getting "up close and personal" in segments. They were THE class act. Seems that today we have gone to a more glossing over of the competition and have a Hollywood Insider approach...cut down segments to just the kernals and not allowing you to go with the feeling of the competition. Maybe our short attention span is to blame (Thanks MTV! NOT)

    Hope the weather is cooperative for the track and field events. They seem to be getting started.

    The men's team pursuit was awe inspiring. To beat the second best in the world by 4s is stunning.

    So happy for Victoria and her other half.

    Off to bed in a bit to get ready for the morning.

    Everyone here is buzzing with the prospect of what tomorrow holds. Keep your fingers crossed for us that the weather isn't too bad, especially for little Ben

    Look at him. How beautiful is he!?

    I simply don't understand NBC. Had to sit through a re-run of the 1996 Olympics (women's gymnastics) before they aired the current Olympics tonight? What is that all about? What? Not enough to show from THIS year? Sheesh.

    Loved seeing the 17 year old swimmer win though. She was so excited! Plus, they showed Kate and William. :D
