Olympic Thoughts

It's late, I'm still kind of sick, and I have to get up mega early tomorrow, er... today, but I just wanted to share a few quick thoughts about the olympics so far.

First of all, holy crap! Did you see the 400 meter relay race that Michael Phelps was in? If you haven't seen it yet, I'm sure there are already clips of it everywhere. It's definately the most exciting race I've ever seen and probably ever will see. I almost peed my pants while I was watching. PS - Michael Phelps' abdominal muscles also leave me shocked and awed.

Second, after watching some of the gymnastics coverage, I've decided that Nastia Liuken is the most amazingly beautiful athlete I've ever seen. Not in the way she looks, but in the way she performs. She's so graceful when she's out there in the spotlight. It's as if she's the Michelle Kwan of gymnastics.

And lastly, how amazing was the opening ceremonies?! Each segment was just as jaw-dropping as the previous. It boggles my mind how they managed to choreograph so many people in so many different performances. Wow! Those Chinese sure know how to put on a show!

Okay, off to bed now.

You're making me miss having TV (something that doesn't happen often).

i always feel left out when the olympics come around. mostly because they don't interest me in the least. i'm the most unathletic person ever and sports just don't make sense to me. aside from basketball. :)

happy friday!

Phelps! SO hot and fun to watch!

I love both Nastia (although her name makes me think of "nasty" EVERY time) and Shawn but the gymnastics judging infuriated me. (And I am a former figure skater, so I am more accepting of arbitrary judging than the average viewer!)

I have abs just like Michael Phelps - in my MIND.

I agree with this entire post--it was all AMAZING! But I LOVED the relay!
