ST... Thanks for continuing to ruin my Olympics fun by posting results before it's televised. I hope in the future you would think about adding a section that one must click to be updated.

I am not sure how much NBC paid them; but I am happy to see at least one team decided to opt out of the new Olympic rules allowing shorts and a t-shirt.

Just a well-written column on the U.S. beach volleyball scene in the Olympics. Bravo to the writer, and of course, our California Girls. Good luck tomorrow!

If their comfortable working attire succeeds in distracting opponents then look for other temas to emulate their style. But remember the champions are honorable American wives and mothers. Anything trashy about their presentation is in the eye of the beholder.

Great match against the Chinese today. Coming back from 5 down to win that first set was huge.

And just think, I thought Beach Volleyball did not belong in the Olympics. These athletes really do put on a show. I cannot wait to see the final.

It was an incredible match of one amazing play after another. It truly could have gone either way. The Chinese team truly perfected their basic techniques, but I thought the Americans were able to vary their moves just enough to get by with a win.

Maybe I missed something, but who do they play for the final match?

I wish they all could be California girls.
