My favorite thing has been seeing Oscar Pistorius, a double amputee, compete in the 400 meter dash with his prosthetic feet. He qualified for the semifinals.

Favorite popular sports are swimming and track.

Not sure I have a favorite "lesser known" sport, but it was interesting watching water polo with Mike Emrick calling the action (his usual gig is calling NHL hockey games for NBC).

Oh yeah, I did catch a little bit of the men's triathalon this morning. Saw the transition from the bike race to the foot race. That was fun to watch.

We need a bicycle emoticon. :bicycle:

Another favorite thing, from last night, was seeing the country of Grenada win its first Olympic medal EVER. Kirani James won gold in the 400 meter dash. Gold Medal clap

I always enjoy seeing first time champions. (Not just in the Olympics!)

Edward,

You state, "I always enjoy seeing first time champions. (Not just in the Olympics!)". If that be the case, then one day if Our Blessed Lord allows us to live a very long, long life, then you will love the Astros. scratchchin laughing

Hope life is good for you and to you.

Blessings, Praying Praying Praying

Leon,

Of course the Astros have already have had their first National League championship, in 2005. From the looks of things that will wind up being their last, as well, with them residing firmly in the basement this season and switching leagues next year.

I'm hoping the Washington Nationals (neé Montreal Expos) will have THEIR first National League title this year.

So far my favorite moments have been the final in beach vollyball, and the Grenada runner winning the 400. I wish they showed more fencing and skeet. The horses are fun to watch too.
