Olympics, Day 2


Today was full of two things for me, the Olympics and church. That’s all I did.

Lindsey tried to hang with me on the Olympics from the beginning of the day, but she suffered from two key handicaps. First, her interest in Olympics sports only extends to, well, really, only gymnastics. Second, her multi-tasking skills are not quite up to my ADD-fueled level.

Why are these two things handicaps? For most of the day I had three screens going. With the full live streams for every event, the iPad app and the handy Grantland guide to the weekend I was fully plugged in all day. I had one event on the TV, another on the iPad and was on the laptop looking up facts and stories, and sometimes the rules to unfamiliar sports.

What did I end up watching? Well, sports that rated at least 5 minutes of my time today:

  • Archery
  • Badminton
  • Fencing
  • Soccer
  • Gymnastics
  • Swimming
  • 3 Day Event (Dressage)
  • Volleyball
  • Beach Volleyball
  • Diving
  • Weightlifting
  • Basketball
  • Water Polo

As you can probably guess, it became a little much for Lindsey. 🙂 At some point after lunch she bailed and went upstairs to get some housecleaning done. I love that she understands the difference between us and let me enjoy my every few year guilty pleasure. I will certainly be paying her back for the understanding.
