Makes me teary.
People from all over the world doing things that they love and having the whole world watching. The US Men's gymnastics team, so excited to win a bronze medal. So thrilled. Not sad that they didn't get the gold, but ecstatic that they won the bronze. Michael Phelps on his way to history. I love his mom, in the stands, cheering until she has no voice. I'm not a mom, but I can bet that her heart is just about to explode with pride.
See how it all sucks you in?
I have been glued to the tv since Friday night and the opening ceremonies. I learn a lot about sports and other countries through the Olympics. I get caught up in it all. Some people might be jaded about the Olympics, and especially about Communist China hosting them, but I like to look past it.
I told you, I am addicted.
Don't even get me started on how much I love the winter olympics.
But what has me hooked the most?
Is it Phelps or the gymnastics? No. I do love the diving and the beach volleyball, but am I thinking about it all day? No.
I'm singing "This is Budweiser. Budweiser. This is Budweiser. This is beer."
Yup. They keep playing that commercial and that song is catchy. I woke up this morning singing it. I got into the shower singing it. I cooked dinner singing it. Whoever wrote that tune probably makes crack too, because I haven't been able to kick it all day.
And the most ironic thing?
I've never tasted beer.
