Are you excited about the Olympics? I’m so excited I want to arm wrestle complete strangers just for the thrill of competition!
I’ve always loved the Olympics – though I must admit I prefer the whole shebang every four years. The 1992 winter games in Albertville (how you doin’, Bonnie Blair? You too, Kristi Yamaguchi?) was the first I remember really realizing how amazing the whole thing is – from the history to the preparation to the athletes themselves. And especially that little ticker with the medal count. I become obsessed with our medal count.
And now that the Queen is involved? The anticipation is palpable. Lizzy knows how to throw a helluva party (see: The Diamond Jubilee).
I always look forward to volleyball and swimming, but really? I’ll watch whatever is one. Will you be watching?
I’m choosing to completely ignore London’s ghastly Olympic logo.
