American Hamm

I'm feeling particularly patriotic right now. As the presidential election draws forward this is increasingly so since I see a growing threat to America and its place in the world on the horizon if the wrong guy gets elected. But right now I'm feeling rather patriotic because of the olympics.

Over the last several days I've really enjoyed seeing America do very well, despite the swimming losses we have to Australia occassionally. I was particularly pleased last night (I waited for the broadcast...I know it happened earlier in the day) when Hamm pulled out a gold in the men's all-around gymnastic competition. Woohoo! Makes me want to wear tights and do flips! Ok, not really...
