Sports overload...

TorresIt was nearly impossible to leave the house this weekend, reality TV was way too good. Nope, it wasn’t a Project Runway or Top Chef marathon that kept me indoors (admittedly, I did catch up on episodes of HGTV’s Next Design Star).

I watched sports, a LOT of sports. How could you not -– the Tour de France kicked off on Saturday morning. Add in Wimbledon finals and the Nadal/Federer duel. Then I closed it out with coverage of the Olympics trials in Track and Field and Swimming. I’m about one step away from TIVO’ing SportsCenter, that is, if we had TIVO or I knew what channel # is ESPN.

Did anyone else out there see Dara Torres swim the 50 free last night? OMG! She’s 41 years old and totally smoked swimmers who weren’t even born yet when she went to her first Olympics. And she set a new record. I have the tissues ready for when NBC does its athlete profile of her during the Games. I love those things. Right now, I can barely make it through the new “Go World” VISA Olympics ads. Have you seen the one about the runner and he falls, then his dad comes on the track and helps him cross the finish line? That’s my favorite >sniff< >sniff<.

You go girl, I was watching all the same things. It was great.

Laura, Laura, Laura. . .
ESPN - Channel 206. I think I need some kind of whiteboard, a spreadsheet and a team of engineers to figure out how I can catch all the 3,600 hours of upcoming Olympics. And I agree, Torres rocks!

See here's the difference... both you super-star Trek chicks went out and rode your bikes. I, however, was more of a virtual rider and did not actually get so far as to trade my pj's for a pair of cycling shorts.

Send some of your training dedication my way!! You two are so inspiring and may I say, way to go Mr. Jen for hanging on those rides. I know first-hand, it ain't easy staying on Jen's wheel. :)

doesn't Bob look cute on this years coverage? I was a fan of Al T. but I think Craig Hummer has been a great addition. It has been an amazing race so far. I am glued to the tube every morning!
