Random Assignments in Rio for DBBC Announcer

From watching the heart-breaking semifinal loss of Kerri Walsh-Jennings and April Ross, to cheering with The Today Show stars, from calling men’s volleyball, to rubbing elbows with USA gymnastics royalty, the Rio run of DBBC Announcer/Account Executive Patrick Kinas goes on.  He finished his gig calling swimming events when that portion of the 2016 Summer Olympics drew to a close last weekend, so he’s now bouncing around calling random events for Westwood One Radio.  Thankfully, he’s still sharing a daily pictorial diary, and allowing capcom to share his journey in turn.  Here’s the latest:

SLIDESHOW:  Patrick Kinas Photos from Day 10 in Rio
Day 10 in Rio, which was my 1st non-14 hour day, so not much in way of exciting photos, covering only the men’s volleyball straight-set win over Mexico. So short of posting a picture of me napping for 4 hours and waking up with no concept of day or time (when, in fact it was 9pm on Monday night), here are a few random shots from the day.
Heading to Maracanazinho now for knockout quarterfinal between USA women and Japan, then back to Copacabana at midnight for Walsh-Jennings against Brazil in semis of beach volleyball. THAT will be epic.

Day 11 in Rio in the books,and now the days honestly are running together. Pretty sure there were great moments and tough losses. But I’m still waking up and seeing Olympic Rings, so life is pretty good. All I remember is getting back to the condo at 3:45am. ‪#‎GoOlympics
