Doesn't seem like anyone is Greece is watching them either; the stadiums are empty.
Today was Assumption Day, a holy day in the Greek Orthodox Church. Â Most people spent the day in church or with their families. I, for one, love the Olympics. Â It's a chance to watch sports that are not usually shown in the United States. Â I'm a big fan of volleyball and likie to play pick up games with my buddies, so to watch professionals play it is great. Â I'm a fan of gymnastics also. Â There is something about the human form and how gracefully people can move. Â Plus, there is no way I'd ever be able to perform even the simpliest gymnastics move (I can't walk across a balance beam, let alone do flips and handsprings from it. ) so I'm in awe of how these people can do what they do. Â It can get a little repetitive, however, and the announcers can get very annoying. In the endm though, it's refreshing to see people play a sport because of their love for it and the pride of their country. Â Hearing about million dollar contracts and loads of selfishness everyday on ESPN and other sports networks blinds you to many people who train and work hard everyday for no money, but the ability to walk into a stadium, wave their country's flag, and the chance to win only a medal.
