Absolutely AWESOME!!!

This morning was, in a word, AWESOME!!! I got to see probably the most anticipated event in the 2008 Summer Olympics - Women's Beach Volleyball. Brazil and China competed for the bronze while China and the United States competed for gold.

In spite of the soaking downpour throughout the morning and being poked in the back and the sides by everyone's umbrellas (that weren't supposed to be used in the stands, according to security stands throughout the arena) it was a spectacular event.

Bronze - China; Silver - China ; GOLD - USA

Again, there's nothing like seeing the red, white, and blue waving in the breeze as the US National Anthem plays while attending an Olympic event, witnessing a US victory.
