Sunday night, the 2012 Summer Olympic came to an end.
is kind of a same that that is the case as that was the same day my
cable box got fixed. About a week earlier my connection punked out on
me and left me without television capabilities (at least I that is what I
thought... but that's a different story).
This week for the Thursday Blog Project, Sara gave us the following topic: Recap of the Olympics in your own words. What is your favorite event or athlete to watch? If you don't watch, why don't you?
I can't blame my lack of knowledge about what happened during the Olympic totally on my "punked-out" cable box. It was in fact working
for the opening ceremony. (I know this for a fact because I still have
the opening ceremony on my dvr waiting to be viewed.) The Summer Olympics have never been my all time favorite. I'm more of a Winter Olympics kind of gal ... I'm all about figure skating!!!
only thing I did watch in terms of the games was the qualifying
gymnastics performance when Jordyn Wieber lost the opportunity to
compete for a medal by a minute score difference. The remainder of my
information came from conversations with friends. Mr. Not-So-Perfect
texted me about the running events. We both agreed running a 10K race
in something like 30 minutes was insane. I heard all about gymnastics
from CT. I also heard about how people were dogging Gabby Douglas on
Twitter because her hair wasn't perfect during the competition.
(Seriously?! She's in the process of winning a gold metal at the
Olympics and people are fussing over her hair... WTF people?!)
didn't "dvr" the closing ceremony. I should have and hope I will find
it somewhere so I can watch it.
(And yes, "dvr" is a verb now!)
I'm looking forward to the 2014 Winter Olympics.... can't wait for figure skating!!!!
