This Is Not The Greatest Blog In the World...


...this is just a tribute.

I, friends, am not a sports writer.  That's not my life's ambition, that's not why I'm here in Beijing. (Well, not really. When I'm home and not bound by a stupid confidentiality agreement, I'll tell you all about it. Doesn't that sound magical?)

I am ashamed to say that I perpetuate every stereotype about women and sports.  I just learned that you can score a field goal in more than one sport.  I don't understand why two minutes in football can take a half an hour. What the shit is "icing"?  No idea. I should really take the time to learn.

But, until then, I defer to my sports writer friends.   These guys, besides being able to put away beer and jaeger like nobody's business, know their shit.  And, maybe someday, I will too. 

Well, probably not. 

Still, if you're looking for Olympics coverage that's actually about sports, check out these dudes:

Benjamin Hochman and Mark Kiszla of The Denver Post. (Anyone who'll spend 3 hours with me at Hooters to watch the Opening Ceremony has my eternal admiration.)
