A friend emailed this to me yesterday. We are obviously in an Olympic year.

it is about freaking time. Now, is Sportscenter going to more swimming coverage in Non-Olympic years. Just asking! But, that is still pretty cool that they did a spot with Phelps.

Awesome! Coached a fun meet a couple of days ago. Had a whole heat of six and under boys that did 25 fly! Wonder who inspired them?!

Of course not.

There's so much poker to show and so little time...

Kirk,
That might also cut into the food eating contests. You know, food eating is such an important sport!!!! I am happy about the spot but it is should have been done in 2003 after Michael's World Championship performance.

Did anyone watch the national Ro-Sham-Bo championships on FSN? Now that was great TV. I am not joking either, FSN actually did show a Rock-Paper-Scissors competition. Sad, but I did find myself watching it, shows how exciting my life is.:notworking:

I wonder what the peak years are for athletes in rock-paper-scissors? Could an athlete in their forties realistically still compete at the top level? :)

We were at the beach a few days ago and a couple of the lifeguards were doing rock-paper-scissors. Their cadence was way too fast for me. They also did several "games" in quick succession. I'm certain I couldn't keep up at my advanced age. I'd be worn out for days and probably suffer from some sort of RSI in my wrists or knuckles. :toohurt:
