    I enjoyed the Sochi games. As disappointing as they were for the Americans in hockey and snowboarding's marquee stars (White and Jacobellis), they did put forth a great effort in the sliding sports (first individual luge medal ever, silver in skeleton and bobsledding). I think it was 7 medals total. Also, great finishes in the newer sports like slopestyle and such.

    Look forward to Rio in 2 1/2 years.

    Today they had a delayed Closing Ceremony for the Paralympics. I only watched a little of it.

    I was going to say "tape delayed," but the youngins might not know what "tape" is. At least, the TV scroll guide didn't list it as a "live" event, but maybe it was (it was dark there, so perhaps the time zones were matched).

    Ok good, I thought maybe it had to due with what's going on in Russia's neighbor/new territory.

    If you are near the Los Angeles area, try to visit the Special Olympics World Games. You can talk and meet with the athletes very easily, and the competition is wonderful. It's hot so wear sunscreen and drink plenty of water.

    The 31st Olympiad in Rio, Brazil opened this weekend. I got tired watching the Opening Ceremony and DVR'd it... only to find out that the speeches dragged on and the cauldron lighting portion was cut out (great; another glitch at the Games ). I enjoyed watching archery, swimming, soccer, volleyball, and weightlifting; was indifferent to basketball, beach vb, rowing, table tennis, and air rifle (nothing happened, and then someone got excited; cut to medal ceremony?!? ).

    On a medal list; sure. Pleased for her victory; definitely. But the "highlights" had no action at all! I guess I'm unpatriotic...

    The Germany/South Korea soccer match was great, and Brazil's almost-comeback from 30 points down in basketball was... almost great.

    There's been some wonderful restore-your-faith-in-humanity sportsmanship lately: runner who gets tripped is helped up by another despite finishing minutes after the end, Usain Bolt halts a live TV interview to wait until the USA's national anthem stops playing.
