So, I knew last night that today (Tuesday in Beijing) Shawn Johnson would compete on balance beam, and I really wanted her to win the gold medal.
And she did.
I knew a few days ago that Jonathon Horton was going to compete on high bar, and I really wanted him to medal.
And he won silver.
I caught the beginning of the semi-final soccer game between Brazil and Argentina, and I really wanted Argentina to win and go on to play in the finals.
And they beat Brazil 3-0.
It's been a special, special day.
p.s. I usually don't look at the Olympic news (or news period for that matter, who needs the stuff) before I watch the actual events. I like to be surprised. But after the women's all-around competition, I was so emotionally exhausted I felt it would be wise to just know how it all went down beforehand. And while I was reading about how Shawn Johnson (FINALLY) won gold, I happened to read about the rest of these things.
But as a general rule, I try to stay ignorant to that night's broadcast. Not that it matters to anyone but me, but it matters to me to set the record straight.
