TED GOCKE'S BLOG
Good morning! I am now starting to get into the 2012 London Olympics. I got to sit back last night for a few minutes and watch my favorite Olympic event-Beach Volleyball.
It was the woman's turn last night and I saw the dominant team in the world-our very own Misty May Trammel and Kerrie Walsh. These two haven't lose a single set, yet alone match in all of the Olympics they have competed in. Great job!
I also got to watch the Olympic platform syncronized divers-that scares me to death! I remember as a teenage lifeguard watching a young teen split his head open on a diving board. I also saw American Greg Louganis several Olympics ago do the same thing.
