Oh well, whatever.
I decided to watch the Olympics for a bit hoping it would cheer me up. I was not disappointed. The women's XC skiing was in full swing. And as I listened to the reporters I just started cracking up.
Reporter #1 talking about the Finnish skier, "She's losing time to [the Estonia skier] since the 5K mark"
Reporter #2 replied, "So what does that tell you?"
Reporter #1: "She's slowing down."
I laughed out loud. It was hilarious. Sometimes these reporters are so ridiculous.
And sometimes they are so annoying. I hate how they latch onto a story and won't let it stop. I feel bad for Lindsey Jacobellis who just got DQ'd in snowboard cross. They will never let her forget that she fell and lost her gold last Olympics, and now they will never let her forget that she got DQ'd today by going off course. They focus on the one unfortunate aspect of your life and they never let up.
I wonder if we do that to each other sometimes. We so easily remember each other's mistakes and weaknesses and refuse to look past them. Anyhow, that's my deep thought for today.
But I do love watching the Olympics. The ice skating, speedskating, snowboarding, skiing, and all of the inspiring stories of the athletes.
My hubby and I love to pretend we are the commentators and say silly things like: gorgeous spin, beautiful lines, that's gonna be a deduction, etc. The Olympic Spirit is alive and well in our home.
