Gold! Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh do it for a Third Time

There is now a gold medalist in the Dodger family.  I would like to extend a great big Dodgers Blue Heaven congratulations to the beach volleyball team of Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh on their gold medal winning performance this afternoon. 

Since I didn't have a chance to watch the game live, I thought I would troll "the twitter" to see what updates I could get. Below are some pics I gathered up.

As you can imagine, Matt Treanor, the proud husband of this blogs favorite Olympian was on pins and needles today.  He came into the park early to catch the game, and while in the clubhouse, as the photo below suggest he hid himself in the privacy of Don Mattingly's office.

He would soon, though be surrounded by a teammate and his skipper.  Both Don Mattingly and Clayton Kershaw watch the match in support.

And to the joy of all, Misty and Kerri win their third straight gold medal.  Below, Al Roker (yes, that Al Roker) shares a pic on twitter showing them celebrating after their win.

Here is another Al Roker pic of them celebrating.

Here is the best one of the day.  Misty gives a big thumbs up to the cheering crowd while Kerri gets ready with the flag.

While here at home, Matt Treanor sports the Olympic rings in what must have been an emotional moment.  No doubt, he is proud as heck.  Pic below via twitter @Dodgers Jon SooHoo/Dodgers 2012.
