So if the 2008 Olympics were marked by total apathy (yes, I wrote about being anti-human back then), the 2012 Olympics are marked by complete obsession.
I can. not. get. enough.
I have caught the fever and can usually be found every night live tweeting my Olympic viewing experience. Believe me. The internet is riveted.
Nothing can kill my Olympics groove. I know everyone is complaining about the NBC coverage and honestly I have no idea what Ryan Seacrest is adding to the dialogue, but I can’t seem to be bothered by it all. It could be because, as I said on Facebook, I have yet to have a race outcome spoiled for me. Possibly because I get the bulk of my news from People.com. I can however spoil the outcome of the Katie Holmes/Tom Cruise marriage in case you missed that.
Missy Franklin is my absolute favorite so far. Jordyn Wieber is a close second. In a world where the “idols” held up to my daughters are Kim Kardashian and Katie Perry, I love that there are strong young women with amazing amounts of poise, grace and humility.
The stories, the nail-biting finishes, the underdogs, the champions. I am addicted.
Are you following the Olympics? Who are your favorites?
