2010 Olympic Headline news: "Apolo Anton Ohno yawned seconds before his big race." What we can't figure out is why viewers were so stunned. This man should be friggin' exhausted after training like he did to make it this far! Why would yawning indicate that he has a "lackadaisical American approach?" We're physically drained just watching the Olympics from afar. We liken this incident to that a working mom yawning before a big meeting or presentation. It's not a sign that she is bored (at least we hope not) or uncommitted. She, or we, are just plain old run down for goodness sake. Give the yawner a break- he did happen to win a BRONZE medal. The kind of medal we deserve for being working moms. Heck, make ours a GOLD!
