While You Were at the Bar 8/13

News you can use:

Russia and Georgia have agreed to a six point cease fire agreement. Both sides will move their forces back to the positions they held on August 6th, the day before all of the ugliness broke out.

Two wrestlers on the University of Nebraska's wrestling team have been let go due to some scandalous photos of them that recently surfaced. The men, who posed nude for a *membership* website, were kicked off the team because they violated the NCAA's rule against appearing in pictures for commercial use. I find this highly amusing since my alma mater plays against UNL.

Michael Phelps set another world record as he claimed his 10th gold medal, the one that marks him as the greatest Olympian of all time.

News you can lose:

My Olympic notes:

- Is it just me, or do y'all dislike the female commentator for diving? She drives me UP THE WALL.

- I saw the other night that gymnastics judges are allowed to review slo-mo replays of the routines and I think that is just plain wrong.

- The swimmers that suck down their goggles on their forehead so hard that it leaves funny hickey looking marks make me wonder if they will regret that later.

- I wonder how much the female gymnasts spend on barrettes? It's got to be a fortune.

Word of the Day:

enervate
(transitive verb): 1. to deprive of vigor, force, or strength 2. to reduce the moral or mental vigor of

The Smartini Barmaids will enervate their competition for presidency.

The diving commentator is dreadful, I totally agree. "Well MaryBeth was perfect, whereas that Haley, she should be exiled to some faraway foreign country and left there to rot." Oh, get up there and do it yourself, lady.

You'll be happy to know that the goggle hickeys do go away

Very true, BOTB, but I'm wondering if, when they go back to watch the video of the race, they think 'Damn, I look stupid with those circles on my forehead!'?

This is just me, letting my vanity spill over onto others!

I think I am the only person in the world who has not seen any of the Olympics and does not care!

Now, when they have the Martini Olympics, I will have front row seats! Hell, I will be in them!

I was so interested in these goggle hickeys as well! They looked crazy on their foreheads.
Michael Phelps...mmmmm....yes please.
