Did you know there are lots and lots of events in the Olympics? Gymnastics, swimming, boxing... oh! And diving! There's diving! I don't know how I forgot that one because it's all... they... are... showing... here.
Mexico won the bronze for synchronized diving, oh, three days ago and I believe I've seen the replay about a hundred times. Sure, they mention Michael Phelps here and there, but Paola Espinosa and Tatiana Ortiz are stars! There isn't as much live coverage as there seems to be in the US, and every segment starts with another replay of one of the winning dives.
I don't mean to sound negative. I really am happy for them. I think I'm so used to the US winning medal after medal that I forgot what an accomplishment it is to win one of those bad boys. Even if it isn't gold. Ibis pointed out that this could be the only medal Mexico wins and that those women really ARE stars.
