The Girls = The Dream Team

The Olympics have their fixtures. Michael Phelps. Russian female gymnasts. Jamaican sprinters.

And The Girls. America’s Girls:

I shouldn’t call them The Girls, but they are two of my favorite Olympians. Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh-Jennings, the beach volleyball athletes. They’ve been at the Olympics since 2004, and these women are winners. 20-0 in their Olympic matches; they’ve only lost one set in the three years. They are athletic. They are mentally tough. They are winners.

Don’t think NBC is missing out on this. The Girls entire matches are televised. Everyone wants to see them.

After defeating the tough Chinese duo of Xue Chen and Zhang Xi in a match today, The Girls go on to the finals versus the other US team. We always root for the US, but man, we admire the sheer Olympics dominance of The Girls. The Girls are the Dream Team of beach volleyball. They’ve been a fixture at the Olympics and we will miss them in 2016.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
