every four years

"excuse me, gentlemen. are you watching this? i can change the channel," the hotel clerk asked.

i can understand her confusion. why would two men be watching with rapt attention women's volleyball? for one, it was a great match. the US and Japan had quite a battle. i was excited for our much taller team to finally pull out the victory.

for two, because it's the olympics! every four years, i renew my interest in sports that don't get airplay. i'm going to be worthless for the next 16 days. just warning you.

usa! usa! usa!
