Are you as inspired by the Olympics as I am?
First of all, let me say how thrilled I was to see one of my
favorite bands (Arctic Monkeys) perform
at the opening ceremony. Yeah, Bob Costas talked over most, okay all, of their
performance, it was still awesome to see. Oh, Alex Turner, be still my beating heart!
Okay, now on to the amazing athletes. During the parade of
countries I couldn’t help but notice how beautiful everyone was. Maybe the
cameraman purposely focused on all the good looking people or maybe there’s
just that much natural beauty out there in the world. Hollywood take note!
I love watching the backstories of the athletes. Now that's
reality TV. Fascinating people with talent
There have been so many inspirational athletes this time
around. Kieran Behan was told he’d never walk again and went on to be the first
Irish gymnast to make it to the Games. 15 year old Katie Ledecky, the youngest
member of the entire U.S. Olympic team, won gold in swimming...And so many more
Which event is your favorite to watch? I especially like
gymnastics. When I was a young girl, I used to spend hours in the backyard
practicing my cartwheels and putting on competitions in front of my Barbies. I also
enjoy watching synchronized diving. It looks insanely difficult to do the dives
individually, much less side by side with someone else.
Swimming is fun to watch, too. Not to mention all the cute
swimmers and their unbelievable bodies. Ryan Lochte’s a cutie, but did you see
Nathan Adrian’s smile after he won the gold? Too cute.
Are you rooting for a specific country or do you cheer for
the underdog like me?
There are a lot of Games left and I’m looking forward to
more inspirational stories and achievements.
Only two more years until Olympic hockey!
