So the week is rollin' on and WRJO is getting set for a big weekend at the Vilas County Fair. Join us on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. We will have the WRJO Summer of Winning Slot machine fired up and ready for you to take a free spin.
So have you been watching the Olympics? I have to say that I have watched more this year than in years past. Don't know why, but I have. I just wish that when they say they are going to cover track and field, that they actually cover the field part. I would love to see more of the Pole Vault, High Jump, Shot Put, Hammer Throw, etc...
When it comes to running however, WOW, the speeds are crazy. We saw the Womens Hurdles last night. Sally Pearson from Australia won the gold. What a performance.
As you know by now Usain Bolt defended his worlds fastest man but have you seen the class he has?
As American Sanya Richards-Ross awaited her gold medal for winning the 400-meter dash, the “Star Spangled Banner” began to play. At the same time, Bolt was being interviewed by a Spanish journalist.
This is where it gets good.
Instead of continuing along and talking about, well, whatever he was talking about, Bolt halts the interview, asks the reporter to be respectful of the moment, and stands in silence to honor the U.S. national anthem and Richards-Ross’ victory.
Now that is class! Click the link below and watch the video.
Hope you have a Great day.
