NO DONUTS in the YARD for SANDY the FENCING FAN this OLYMPICS: Leading US fencers miss the podium today.

I am about ready to pitch the Olympics into the trash can.  Botswana could save the day!  Tunisia did not win yesterday.  But I was so excited about today – surely we’d win a fencing medal today!  And then we had TWO US fencers in the semi-finals – surely this had potential – if they both got gold – time for donuts in the yard as four years ago!

No donuts this year.  Maybe in next four or five days there’s a fencing medal for us.  But it was a terrible day for me today.  My heart goes out for Mariel Zagunis and Seth Kelsey.  Here’s the Reuters article.  I do not intend to talk about it again!  I drowned my sorrows at a Chick-fil-A for dinner!  (The line at the Mechanicsville CFA was all the way to the end of the store and the car line was almost to 360!)
