100m backstroke,with can of Duff beer in belly button, in case of dehydration

So far, the Americans seem to be doing pretty good! While the Chinese, who are also doing well, are choking up a little at certain times. I think it's because of the tremendous pressure on them to do well as the host country, during China's "coming out party". The U.S., on the other hand, was expected to do well, but not spectacularly, overall, and therefore I think that the more limited pressure has allowed them to perform as well as they have been doing so far. Can't wait to see track and field and boxing (and Tae Kwon Do!). I want to see more of Cuba, in anything, because they are just a sports powerhouse left over from the Soviet Union and the Eastern Bloc, and I want to see the Caribbean track athletes as well break some new world records!

I've been busy traveling to Louisiana and New Orleans recently, and will try to blog a little more on that soon. For now though, it's USA! USA!- Hoo-Hoo-Hoo!
