I have got to be the biggest Olympic fanatic I know. I get more excited about the Olympics, that happen every 2 years, than I do for all Christmases combined. Seriously. I can’t get enough. I love learning about the athletes, watching the events, watching the Olympic version of The Today Show in the morning and the Olympic Late Shows at night. Needless to say I will be glued to my TV for the next 17 days. Can I just mention the fact that Ryan Seacrest is reporting for NBC this year… it’s just a little too much to handle. Can one die from enthusiastic excitement?
This is all really funny too because I really don’t care for watching other sports throughout the year, like at all. I think that a lot of people space out their sports enthusiasm. They watch sports year round so when the Olympics arrive they’re slightly underwhelmed. Me, on the other hand, I starve myself of sports so that I can go crazy & hog-wild at the world’s best sports buffet. When I was younger, I would record all my favorite events on VHS and watch & watch & re-watch them over & over again. Lets just say, I definitely have a lot of figure skating & gymnastics routines memorized by heart. These video tapes are still lying on a shelf in my basement. Thank goodness this year for DVR. Hallelujah!
I cannot wait for tomorrow and the extremely hyped beginning of the “dual in the pool” between Lochte and Phelps. However… let’s please not ignore Nathan Adrian…
He’s a total hunk right? Images above copyright Simone Anne and used here with permission; you can find more images on her blog! I really hope he does well in these games. I thought that the Vancouver games were too much for me to handle, with my love of Canada, Matt Lauer, and Michael Buble all wrapped into one. But I’m going to be honest with you guys. I’ve had an obsession since 6th grade with Britain. I saved $300 in 6th grade and continued saving throughout middle school to go to London. It wast until last summer that I finally made it! London is the BEST place I’ve ever traveled to, and my favorite place without comparison in the world. These Olympics are going to be brilliant! Opening ceremonies tonight!! Happy watching everyone!
