The Olympics for a second?
I’m so excited for the next three weeks. It was my goal to watch every minute of the Olympics, well it’s the first day and I’ve already failed that one. But I plan to watch religiously for the next three weeks.
I personally think we should declare the Olympics an international holiday and not have to go to work. I think that sounds pretty reasonable. Who’s with me?
I loved the opening ceremony last night, even though I think I might be the only person that did. It was amazingly ridiculous with more British stereotypes than I could count. And a 100 foot Lord Voldemort.
I was thoroughly entertained. I had many good laughs, WTF moments and watched some cool effects, what more could I ask for. Oh and Freddie Mercury made an appearance. Yes yes yes.
Fun Olympics story: I went to high school with a guy who is competing. His name is Wayne Davis and he’ll be competing with the Trinidad and Tabago team (where he was born) in the Mens 110m hurtles, keep an eye out for him! We were actually in PE together freshman, so I’m hoping he wins a medal so I can tell people I ran with an Olympic athlete. And I guess because he’s really nice and deserves it.
I’m really excited for gymnastics (including rhythmic!), the marathon, triathlon, track and field, diving and basically everything.
What did you think of the opening ceremony?
What events are you looking forward to?
