Lloyd's Goal Is Golden

I started the morning in the pouring rain with the women's beach volleyball gold medal match. The U.S. won quickly, thank goodness. I really didn't care who won as long as it happened fast so we could get out of the downpour. It was truly miserable.

I went back to the office, did expense accounts and burned CDs to clean my computer off. Fun stuff. I ended the night with U.S. women's soccer beating Brazil in overtime. Thank goodness the rain stopped just before the match. Off to yet another bus...
