LONDON -- The rain came and went but wasn't an excuse. Nor was there a reappearance of the notorious London fog, which hadn't been an issue around here in forever. But as Wednesday evening unfurled and the time encroached upon midnight, a strange thing happened to the U.S. women's beach volleyball team of Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh-Jennings. They lost a set. In the Olympics. It had never happened to the two-time defending gold medalists, who were 16-0 in lifetime Olympic matches without ever dropping a set. They rallied to beat Austria's sister tandem of Doris and Stefanie Schwaiger, 17-21, 21-8, 15-10, but something seemed amiss to need all this work against the world's 13th-ranked team.

The Dodgers' series opener against the Arizona Diamondbacks wasn't the only game that was on backup catcher Matt Treanor's mind Monday. As his teammates dressed in the clubhouse, Treanor sat in front of his locker, staring at a computer. This is how Treanor is following his wife, beach volleyball star Misty May-Treanor , as she tries to win her third consecutive Olympic gold medal in London. May-Treanor and partner Kerri Walsh Jennings beat a Czech team, 21-14, 21-19.

- In basically the backyard of austere 10 Downing Street, where British Prime Minister David Cameron officially resides in a stately executive manor, a raucous block party rocked his neighborhood Saturday night. Queen Elizabeth celebrates birthdays on the same grounds, but even if QEII forever became a Bond girl at Friday night's Olympic opening ceremony, I bet none of her bashes ever resembled the Olympic beach volleyball games here. Prince Harry's, maybe, but not the queen's.

LONDON -- The referees were bundled up for a brisk winter night. Aussies Nat Cook and Tamsin Hinchley went with the long sleeves and tights for their women's beach volleyball match. It is winter Down Under. But these are the Summer Olympics in London. And the beach volleyball venue, the Horse Guards Parade Grounds, happened to be hot and muggy just three days ago. Californians and two-time defending gold medalists Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings -- going with the long sleeves -- shrugged off the chilly conditions and a start time of 11 p.m. in London to stop a spirited challenge, winning the first-round match, 21-18, 21-19.
