Last night Sister #1 and I watched the Olympics closing ceremonies. Of course, I didn’t sit through the whole thing but I did catch the last hour. I did make it in time to witness Jackie Chang sing. Did anyone else see him randomly on stage there at the end? It was weird. He was on stage singing with famous Chinese pop singers. I had no clue he could sing, that is if he was really singing. But if that was him singing at the end, he doesn’t have a horrible voice. He should start singing in his movies. Ummm, this post is not about Jackie Chang singing. Sorry I got side tracked! Anyway, back closing ceremonies.
I was kind of sad to see the Olympics come to an end. I have really enjoyed watching the games. Like most of the world I was glued to my TV watching the Olympics. Those TV people had me sucked in at the very beginning. It was those sappy stories they play about each of the athletes; which reminds me. Do all Olympic athletes have a sad situation or physical problem that they overcome? I mean, is that a requirement to enter into the Olympics. Some of those athletes stories could have double as an Extreme Homemaker story. The Roommate and I started to realize everyone’s story was sad a few days ago. Sorry, side tracked again. But that is a legitimate question.
So for the past two weeks I’ve watched track, basketball, volleyball, rowing, gymnastics, and whatever else was on when I got home from work. I was addicted. I can’t remember an Olympics, winter or summer, where I actually watched the games every night for two weeks. I was really rooting for USA. I kept up with the medal count, and I did my best to read about what events USA would take, if I didn’t see it for myself.
Today, I salute USA! My hat goes off to all the USA athletes that made it to the Olympics. You made us proud and you entertained us!
