Freedom fried

I’m not “live-blogging” the Olympics, but whenever the games are on and I have a computer or iPhone nearby, I’m always quick to post 140 character snippets of snark on Twitter. If you hung out at my house, you’d recognize those barbs as the way I watch TV — except usually I don’t make them public via Twitter. Last night, for example, I was chattering about the trash-talking French swimmers who apparently have never learned what motivates American athletes. Anyway, I was asleep by the time the actual race occurred so I didn’t get to enjoy the French swim team celebrating their well-deserved silver medal.
