Who isn’t addicted to the Olympics? It’s the only time in my life when I actively watch TV. It’s the first thing I run to when I get home from work. At work, I’m refreshing the BBC, WSJ, and NYTimes because the tech gods blocked NBC! Uber-annoying.
We were supposed to do trivia tonight, but I cancelled. Gotta get my Olympics fix, especially since we missed watching all of the opening ceremonies because we went out for drinks on Friday. Should’ve skipped drinks. The Olympics only happen every 2 years—yes, I’m talking about both summer and winter.
I have to voice my opinion on Jordyn Weiber failing to make it to the all-around finals. She came in third and the famed gymnastics coach Bela Karolyi said the top athletes regardless of country should make it to the all-arounds. What an idiot. If we made that a rule across all the sports, then ping pong would be dominated by China. Can you imagine watching the Olympic games, a global sporting event, where every contender (say for ping pong) came from one country? Ridiculous. Besides, Weiber almost fell off the balance beam. Her teammate Aly Raisman deserved to be in the top spot, and Gabby Douglas #2.
