Olympic fever

  • Are you like me that you simply cannot stop watching the Olympics? Honestly, I have never sat and thought: "Man, I could really go for a bit of the water polo."
    But I'm watching it now!
    This weekend my wife and I watched swimming, beach volleyball, swimming, gymnastics, swimming, basketball embarrassment, and swimming.

  • If you get a chance, watch teams table tennis. The idea that four guys could get that into table tennis will have you weeping with laughter.
    My big question, though, is how did table tennis become an Olympic sport and not, say, hurling, which is obscure but an actual sport.

  • But the sport that is conspicuously absent from the Olympics: Naked night basketball

  • My dad used to have to go through quite an ordeal to get me out of bed and ready for school every morning. Thankfully, he never brought in a live news crew.

  • Look at all the cool government crap you can buy on the Internet. Your tax dollars bought it once, now you can buy it again -- including a 1988 14-passenger van for just $300.

  • Newest weapon of terror: Bees.

    Olympic fever? No just a mild rash.

    You might still want to get it looked at -- especially if you have any Olympic inflamation.
