Olympic Thoughts

Here are a few thoughts on the Olympics - these are the viewpoints of the writer and the writer alone, and do not necessarily represent the views of the blog administrator ('cause, the writer, she has been up to all hours all week trying to watch the stinkin' Olympics, and is liable to go on a tangent!!!).

First of all - the opening ceremonies. I know that everyone is talking about how spectacular they were. I don't get it. At one point I looked at hubby and told him they coulda saved millions by just painting a wall and letting us watch it dry. The only parts of the ceremonies that I enjoyed - the fireworks and the little girl singing - turned out to be LIES!!!!!!!! Fireworks - superimposed into the picture (not quite sure how that worked, but that's what I have heard), and the little girl - lip syncing. 'Cause some foolio in the Chinese government decided that the girl who actually sang it was not cute enough ... WHAT?!?!?!?!?! Oh, don't get me started!

Gymnastics - I so wish I would have taken stock out in the Goody hair product company. Because, clearly, if the gymnasts of the world have anything to say about it, this ...
... is the next big hair trend. And the more the better - seriously, how many of these can one "sixteen year old" gymnast get on her tiny head?!?!?!

SIXTEEN?!?!?!?!?!?! -

ummm, yeah, sure. And the "cute" girl sang too, right?

Gymnastic scoring - First of all, I don't understand it - I miss the perfect 10 (GO MARY LOU!!! - who, 24 years and four kids later, is still rockin' ... and BUFF!!!). Second of all, let's just say that it's a good thing Nastia won, cause I was ready to go kick some judge tushies!!! In all my "1 o'clock in the morning and I am STILL up watching the Olympics" glory!!!

Heroes - I have two, so far, in these games:
First off, this person ...

Nope, not Michael (although, ummm, WOW!!!!!), but his mom!!!! I LOVE to watch this woman watch her son. She ROCKS!!!!!

and then there's THIS lady ...

Dara Torres - 41 years old and she gets two silver medals (the first, she missed the gold by one/100th of a second!!! AND, she was older than the gold and bronze medalists COMBINED!!!!!). PLUS - before the final, one of the other girls ripped her suit and Dara asked the officials to wait for her and TOLD the other girls that they would ALL be waiting for her to get ready. 'Cause, ya know, she is a mom and can talk to these children that way!!! LOVE HER!!!

There ya have it. My thoughts. I am sure there will be more, but I gotta get ready for church.

Have a great Lord's day!!!!!!

Praise Him LOUD!
