What a blast to watch
Peter Garrett Phil Dalhausser--he rocks!--and Todd Rogers win the gold in beach volleyball tonight!
We were a little worried going into the third set, but Dalhausser came up big and they smoked the Brazil team.
I'm not sure why, but I told Ken that other than watching Michael Phelps make history, beach volleyball has been just about my favorite thing to watch in these Olympics. To me, it seems like the "party game" of the summer Olympics, with loud music playing, the crowd totally into it, and then there's the whole sun and sand aspect that makes you think of fun in the sun!
All that's missing is a fire pit, roasting weenies, and a little shindig on the beach, with all the cool cats and kitties havin' a kicky blast while they bend the gig outta shape!
Ken and I got a kick out of driving along Malibu Beach and seeing the dozens of volleyball nets on the beach. I guess I didn't realize this, but southern California was the birthplace of beach volleyball.
Hey! I think it's time to revisit Los Straitjackets, surf music band extraordinaire! Turn it up, enjoy the guitar whammy, do the Pony, and throw a little Watusi in there while you're at it!
