I have never been much of a sports fan. Football is too rowdy and hockey is too cold. I go to baseball games for the hotdogs. But I have always loved the olympics. So when the summer games roll around I am glued to the TV. I refused to leave the couch during the opening ceremonies and have been staying up past my bedtime to watch the coverage. I'm sure my boss will be thrilled when my eyes are no longer drooping despite my several cups of coffee.
I think the thing I love most is the pageantry of it all. The athletes parading in during the opening ceremonies and the lighting of the torch. The medal ceremonies. The uniforms emblazoned with the colors of the flags. I'm also a sucker for those cheesy videos NBC plays to introduce the athletes.
Oh, and I wish I could do my make-up half as well as Aliya Mustafina. Because girl is fierce.
If you're stopping by from Gussy...welcome!
