So after the nail biter of the Beach Volleyball game between the team from the Czech Republic ( Marketa Slukova/Kristyna Kolocova) and the USA team of Misty May Treanor/Kerri Walsh (who I just discovered is playing with pink eye!) which Misty May and Kerri won – their 16th straight Olympic match with no set losses over 3 Olympics – Abigail decided she needed cookies. You can burn a lot of energy rooting! Let me just note that I regard these two women as two of the greatest athletes the US has ever produced. They rank right up there with Michael Phelps in terms of consistency, dedication and skill. They are the Rocky Marciano of Olympic Beach volleyball.
Since I knew the results of the Men’s Team Gymnastic event, I was designated to make the cookies.
They were not bad if I do say so myself. (I love to add a few white chocolate chips as an accent). A bit later one of Abigail’s bffs Caroline,(who is just slightly shorter than Abigail)
came up and they ate a few cookies and dough balls before settling in for a long summer catch up (they haven’t seen each other since June because of camp schedules etc.).
