The 2008 Olympics have been incredible thus far, or at least that's what I read and hear. Being on the west coast of the United States, the already delayed television coverage of the main events doesn't start until 8:00 pm. And for the first couple of hours it's usually Beach Volleyball, EVERY night so far.
I've watched a lot of beach volleyball, in an attempt to stay awake to watch the events I'm really interested in seeing. I have failed every night thus far. Have missed all but one Michael Phelps phenom swimming, all of the Gymnastics. You get the picture.
Oh, and it's not all beach volleyball that is broadcast every night, it's USA women's, Misty May-something and her partner what's-her-name. Night-after-night.
Have they won yet?
Perhaps I'm in the minority here and Beach Volleyball is the hottest ticket in Beijing. At one point I had to check my television because I thought I might have landed on the Beach Volleyball channel. I'm not a fan of the sport yet, but an all BVTV can't be too far behind in these United States.
