In other news, that's a hell of a story about Hamm's gold medal. I'd like to see him give it up, as that would be the stand-up thing to do, but I suppose fault lies with the Koreans for not protesting when they should have. Still. Ouch.
Also, I was watching men's trampoline this morning (some of the sports that made into the Olympics boggle me, but don't you think for a second that I won't watch pretty boys in spandex or hot men out on the beach) and one of the competitors was from Denmark, I think. He worked as a mailman, delivering the mail on his bike every morning to pay the bills so he could train as a tramp gymnast. He bailed out on his routine in the prelims and didn't even make it into the finals and that, for me, is the saddest story I've heard about the games so far. Poor kid (and he was just a kid) was out on his bike every morning, thinking that the medal he'd get at the Olympics would make the drudge work all worth it, and then it wasn't. I feel for him. Say hello to my random hypersensitivity.
And I had something else to say, but I got distracted and forgot. So there.ETA:
This isn't what I was going to say, but it's worth mentioning. I'd love to see some beach volleyball slash, especially femslash. Say hello to my lustfulness.
