It’s that time of week again, when the Ladies… shamelessly pimp out their other blogs and share with you what they’ve written. It’s kind of like show-and-tell, only with fewer pet hamsters.
Matthew Mitcham is an Aussie diver who brought home the gold, and Chitown Chick shares something else about him that NBC didn’t mention.
Lady Andrea campaigns hard for Fredbird in the Home Run Derby’s MLB mascot bracket.
Miss Minda ponders the actual importance of sports and finds a great reason to keep being a sports fan. She needs something inspiring at a time when it’s never felt worse to be a Royals fan.
So not surprised NBC said nothing about Matt Mitcham. And wasn’t his final dive a beaut?
Yup, I got sucked into the Olympics. I now totally get the Adam van Koeverden love. I fell in love with the Brazilian men’s volleyball team – the good looks and playing style of Andre-Heller and Murillo, the blocking ability of Gustavo, the manic energy of Sergio and the fire and passion of Giba. Usain Bolt was a hoot. And Priscilla Lopes-Schliep’s surprise when she won the silver in the 100m hurdles in a photo finish was priceless.
Oh well. Back to baseball!
