Sports isn’t a common topic in the land of Lovelyish (Which breaks my heart since all I watch is basketball and Buffy), so please allow me to brush the cobwebs off of our athletic digital tome. I love the Olympics, but hate to wait four years to gawk at such athletic prowess. The games are close upon us, and the events I’ve cherished since I was a wee lass are getting me hooked yet again! Therefore, I’m apologizing in advance to all my friends’ ears that I will eventually talk off about the crème de la crème of human strength.
My favorite Olympic sports are gymnastics, diving, swimming and volleyball. The Olympics offers a packaged deal of competitions you rarely have access to watch in the Olympic off-season. And the competitive nature of these athletes increases when they reach this ultimate stage to represent their country, admirably accepting no money to prove that their lifetime of dedication is worth the gold. The event is seriously that high of an honor and…. and I’m obsessed, and… and have I typed your ears off enough?!
Aaaaaaaand I’m not ashamed to admit that the Adonis-clones the event beckons cause me to block out focus on strategy and precision, reducing me to a drooling drone. So let’s all meet at my place on July 27th in the late afternoon? Dinnertime? We shall form our own shameless drool party. (BYOB – bring your own bucket.)
What your favorite Olympic events? Are you looking forward to watching the historic event?
