I've been glued to the TV during the Olympic Games and find myself getting creative to make sure I don't miss anything. I work out in the morning and catch the games before work. I'm glued to the metal competition of the Americans V/S the Chinese and the controversy of the Chinese Olympic Shadiness. I'm rushing home after work to watch the nightly coverage and am enjoying the variety of sporting events including ones I have never heard of. My favorite new sport in 5th grade immature fashion has been the weightlifting round called the Clean and Jerk.
The Clean and Jerk is when the weightlifters have to first lift the bar up to their chests, and then jerk it up over their heads. Now this sport wouldn't be so entertaining if it weren't for the hilarious commentary that comes with it.
- "Well Bob, looks like he wasted all his energy on the clean, and didn't leave enough for the jerk!"
- "Looks like he tried to jerk too fast and he failed!"
- "Wow!! What a jerk!"
I know, I have the maturity of a 5th grader, and am certainly not behaving like I'm smarter than one...I haven't gotten into the weightlifting Snatch event, I have limits!!! But still...the clean and jerk...LOL!!!!!
