I don’t know about you, but I’m totally addicted to the Olympics. I didn’t manage to get any tickets, but I was in London the first day Brits won gold, and Tower Bridge was beautifully lit up (but also had a sponsorship ad on it, which was disappointing).
One thing I love is how emotional everyone on the BBC is getting as they support the British team – especially when they’re covering minority sports like judo and rowing.
I’m amazed by all of the athletes, and some of them have brought me to tears. I love it that “regular” people – like the Army officer and PE teacher who won gold in rowing for Britain – can show how passion, determination and dedication lead to amazing things.
All through the Olympics, though, I’ve felt like a lazy lard ass. Here’s a video that makes me feel particularly bad for not being able to do a single push-up.
Seriously, if a freakin’ bus can do it, I should be able to too, right?
Do you have a favorite Olympic moment?
