In fact, I think I like all of the summer sports, except maybe football and softball... I especially love the horse stuff, archery, and swimming, but my favorite is probably women's volleyball.

It's like a fancier version of last week's Project Runway challenge (which was great). They each designed a opening ceremony outfit for America. My favorites:
I missed most of the opening ceremony, but I hear it was spectacular. I'm looking forward to watching it. I tried to find it on youtube, but apparently you have to watch it at the nbc olympics site.
