A brief summary of the 2004 Olympics thus far, from the perspective of someone who has not been following the Summer Games

1. The U.S. basketball team lost in the first round to Puerto Rico, which is apparently some sort of American colony. This was very humiliating.

2. The American softball team took the gold. Softball is played by women. I have no idea what is happening in the baseball realm.

3. I think I saw something about some tremors or an earthquake of sorts striking Athens. That, or I might have been having flashbacks to The Day After Tomorrow.

4. The newly-sovereign state of Iraq sent a team of soccer players to the games this year, alongside one swimmer. I like to imagine that this waterbound fellow is the ultimate Pixies fan and is known to pump himself up before meets by singing "Ride a tire, down the River Euphrates..." He has not stated for the record, however, his opinion on Trompe Le Monde, though I'm fairly sure he would agree that "Alec Eiffel" is a great track.

5. I miss Greg Louganis. That was a human interest story that I could really wrap my head around.

Posted in a Shallow fashion.
