Olympic Fever

Today is Friday, which is always a good thing for those of us who work "typical" 9-5 jobs. (Although, my job is anything but typical).  For me it also means that I only have one more week left of work until September, one of the perks of being a 10-month employee.

But, wait.  This isn't just any regular Friday.  It is the Friday of the open ceremony of the Olympics!

Here's a little video to get you amped up, if you aren't already, about the Olympic Games!



While that song is overplayed, I still loved the video.  Brendan Hansen's expression is priceless.

What am I most excited about for the Olympics?  Well, what am I NOT excited about?!  I can't wait for the marathon, track and field, the triathlon, swimming, gymnastics, open water swimming, cycling, etc.  I think you get the point.

We are traveling and working during a lot of the Olympics but we have DVR.  I am happy at moments like these that I actually agreed to get DVR.  I'm sure it is going to be like the Olympic Trials for us and we are going to be watching events hours or even days after they happen, so I am going to try really hard to ignore social media talking about the Olympics. 

Coverage of the opening ceremony begins at 7:30 tonight! Get ready!



Are you excited for the Olympics?  Which events do you HAVE to watch?

  12. Being in London we've had our pick of events all day everyday for the past 2. I obviously love swimming, running, (t & f and marathon) gymnastics, and also enjoy watching all of the more "random" ones like table tennis & canoe slalom.
