okay, maybe four posts in one day

is a bit excessive, but this is AMAZING!! I take back any snide comment about synchronized swimming I have ever thought or (okay, I admit it) said.

I'm amazed at how these women can do all of this stuff, together, in time to the music, and without swallowing and sputtering out several gallons of water. So maybe I'm a lousy swimmer, but still, I can't even fathom it.

I haven't been able to comment what feels like years! So nice to get back to normal.

If you're an athlete that's made it to the Olympics in ANY sport, no matter how seemingly insignificant, you rock in my book. The dedication alone gets my respect and admiration.

I do think the synchronized swimming is fun to watch. But Debra, I still think the "athletes" on the trampolines are just overgrown kids. Still, I am always amazed at what the body can achieve, no matter what event I'm watching.

I once won a box of Hot Tamales for winning a "synchronized swimming" event when I was in high school. We were just clowning around, but at least we were coordinated ;-)
