06:04 pm - Well the Olympics are now over . . .
Every fours years I get to indulge myself in my favorite form of spectator sport -- watching men's gymnastics. It's not a very popular sport in the US, so I rarely get to see competitions broadcast. Same for certain other sports I enjoy watching, like Greco-Roman wrestling and fencing -- unless a US athlete is likely to get a medal (preferably a gold one), US stations ignore these sports entirely. Women's gymnastics gets seen a bit more, since folks like to see the cute little pixies compete -- but I prefer to watch handsome, muscular men moving gracefully but with strength . . .

One of the main attractions of these Games has been the set of identical twins competing -- Paul and Morgan Hamm.

After a spectacular comeback and a somewhat controversial decision, Paul Hamm became the winner of the gold medal in the men's all-around competition.

Along with all the eye-candy a glimpse of the future was available -- in the form of Germany's Fabian Hambuechen . . .

He's only about 15 or 16 years old, but already he can compete at the Olympic level, qualifying not just as part of Germany's team, but also for both the all-around and high bar finals. Not bad for such a little guy -- and he IS little -- only 5'0" and 104 pounds!!

I guess women's gymnastics no longer has a monopoly on cute little pixies . . .
