Think I am just thinking.

Words are but thoughts made visible.

Back to the Olympics. No more about fencing. How about Fencing?

  Well, enough about the back yard and fence work.  This week is for the Olympics.  Like a few (Million) other people around the world, my family were also tuning in to see just how well the U.S.A. teams faired against the world.  Had the chance to watch the China verses the USA in basketball.  Though the first half was somewhat closer, by the forth quarter the writing was already on the wall as to who the winner would be.  Regardless, it was a fun game to watch.  I thought the USA Team was playing much more like a true team and not just a bunch of big name stars who happen to be out on the basketball court at the same time.

  A large portion of the hype has been about swimming and Micheal Phelps, or so it seems.    Of course there have been a number of Olympic Champions to emerge from the games.  Check out Fencing for interested.  I know you thought I was done with all the fencing references, but in all seriousness, check out the results of the Women’s Fencing event, if you’re not already aware of the results.

  In Olympic Fencing, they swing long sordes at each other. 

In back yeard fencing, you swing a hammer. 

 

 

But in both, you must hit your target in order to win.  Accordingly, I should be receiving my Metal any day now!

  1. To Fence or not to fence, that is the question.
