Women's beach volleyball on usa network, Olympic level.
Girls got us whooped in look at me moments.
Cat Osterman...wow what a beatdown.
Carry on Roonie, looks like you're having fun.
My favorite female USA Olympic participant was Flo-Jo. Not only a tremendously gifted and successful track star, but she looked amazing in the process all dolled up with makeup, great hair and those wicked painted nails. A superstar trendsetter.
My favorite isn't even an american...romanian gymnast or russian figure skater, I can't decide.
Besides the Golf it is the only sport that interest me in the Olympics. Makes my desire to be young again increase 10 fold.
Here we go again @MojaveDesertPghFan
USA taking on the Latvians i think. USA network
Don't know if I'm proud or sad of the Norwegian handball team for refusing to wear bikini bottoms as required by the rules. It had to be a man who instituted that rule. They are young hot ladies and I would have been more then happy to watch them smack a ball around in a bikini bottom but as much as it kills me to say this, they are right. It's BS that they have a rule like that and the girls were right in just wearing shorts.
I was hoping for a compromise, shorts but topless.
Probably back in the day the only way 2 get people 2 watch.
Why can't I find the only Olympics sport I care about Boxing??? I've yet 2 see a round.
While I love 2 watch Women's Gymnastics I root for them all.
The only time I really root for one person is in Boxing.
I've seen some women boxing on the USA network. Its like they are covering the females this year.
I DVRed Womens Volleyball I believe it was Lithuania V.S. USA 2day.
The USA girls took down defending gold medalists China.
Let's get gold Cat!!!
If we can have a civil discussion lol, what do you think about Simone Biles not participating anymore in the Olympics. Due to her stature in the sport she has garnered the attention for her decision.
It is a dangerous sport and she would have to deal with the physical effects of not being in it 100% mentally but what about the gymnasts who were cut and her teammates, let alone the US fans. The US is inundated with sports but the Olympics are viewed differently imo by other countries. Does that play a part?
Its an interesting debate, I am on the fence tbh. Really the decision is personal vs duty if you will.
I don't like her decision to what i amount to quitting. Nothing against Simone & take into account that I'm older with old school principles.
I thought of the scene where Patton slaps the kid in the field hospital. That is the way my mentors would have handled it.
Again ...I'm watching sports that I didn't even know was a sport let alone in the Olympics....Yet No Boxing. Has This once Great Sport fallen so far???
USA wins Golf! Way to go Xander! Clutch putt!!
