I like to watch Swimming, Diving, Gymnastics, Archery, & Equestrian. I don't think, I saw sailing. That will be fun to watch.

I usually watch the Gymnastics. I'm a winter olympics girl too. The ice skating is my thing. My Dad let me go with our youth group when I was seven to ice skate and I thought I would just get out there and do all kinds of jumps and turns. Well, I ended up bouncing off a lady with a big "caboose". I landed into a group of teens and made about 20 kids fall. It popped my bubble about ice skating. So, I just watch the Olympics and dream I am one of them.

"McKayla is not impressed" has become a popular meme over at Reddit. McKayla is McKayla Maroney, the gymnast who appeared less than thrilled while standing on the podium with her silver medal.

PostSubject: OLYPIC SWIMMERS   Thu Aug 09, 2012 9:37 am

Well, this does it for me. My image of Michael Phelps has been shattered!
This article was on the net this am.................


Olympic Swimmers Pee in the Pool: Staying hydrated as an athlete is important, but who wants to race on a full bladder? For swimmers apparently, peeing poolside or even in the pool itself is all part of the Olympic events. "[It's] not uncommon to splash yourself before you climb up on the blocks," Carly Geehr, a former member of the U.S. national swim team reported. "So that extra liquid on yourself and the pool deck affords you an interesting opportunity. (I'll let you finish the rest of that thought.)" It's no secret among them either, she added. All of them do it.

Ryan Lochte, 11-time Olympic medalist, concurred. In an Aug. 3 radio interview, he warmly admitted: "Of course. I think there's just something about getting into chlorine water that you just automatically go. [I didn't] during the races, but I sure did in warm-up."

OK kiddies, when you become Olympic athletes you can grow up to pee in Olympic pools too. But until then, let's try to keep public pools less yellow.

and Dave....who hasn't micturated in a large body of water? Come on, admit it.
Every time I wade into a warmer patch of water in the pool, I think to myself, 'An American has been here.' And I feel proud.

Joe, as Michael would put it, "it's outhouse humor",
something you should be thoroughly familiar with!
Micturated?
