I’ve Got the Fever

It happens every two years: Winter or Summer, I get bitten by the Olympic bug. I spent five straight hours watching last night as Michael Phelps battled Ian Thorpe (the Thorpedo). I watched the Women’s Gymnastic team (the best in years, by the way) start strong and lose their lead to the Romanians.
Keep in mind that my life in no way hinges on the successes or failures of these young athletes, but I can’t not watch. I get excited when one of ours takes the Gold (or the Silver, or the Bronze), and I get way too involved with the minutiae (I live for the bio montages). Poor Kev. He’s unlikely to see me for the next few weeks, as I have been struck down by Olympic Fever.

    Normally I share your affliction. This year whenever I sit down to enjoy an event someone feels the need to tell me how it turns out. It just isn’t the same if I already know how it ends.

    I don’t always get caught up in the Olympics. I have to make a concerted effort to watch. But when I do, I love it! Like this year! All those swimmers are so good looking, too. I’m not talking about bodies (that’s a given with athletes)… I’m talking smiles and eyes. Yum Yum!!

    Someone almost spoiled the men’s all around for me last night, but I escaped before they blabbed. All I knew was there was something big, but I didn’t know if it was big good or big bad. Now I’m keeping myself sequestered as much as possible. 🙂
