I've finally figured out why the Olympics are only held every four years, it's because if they held them every year most of us would get absolutely nothing accomplished. For the past week, I have literally gone to work and then right home to watch how the U.S. athletes stand up to the other athletes of the world.

It doesn't matter to me if it's swimming, gymnastics, or archery, they all keep me on the edge of my seat yelling for "OUR team,"

One thing I have to say though is, I do not get how badminton is an Olympic event. When I think of badminton I think of a bunch of hairy drunk dudes at the lake trying to hit each other in the nuts with the "shuttlecock..." which is actually what that little thing they hit is called.

Another reason this shouldn't be an olympic event... Shuttlecock....
