The Best Part of the Olympics

Da Goddess @ 01:24

I watched the skating because…hello! It’s something I can’t do. I could do it when I was young and lived in Ohio, but in California? No. Noooooo. Nope. Didn’t happen. (Roller skating was easy peasy, lemon squeezy. Thankyouverymuch)

I tried to watch other events. The biathlon caught my attention for a few minutes, but still didn’t do much for me.

Back to the skating. All of it. The single best thing about the skating? Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski. For reals. Not only did I learn stuff from them, I also enjoyed their witty reparte and their ability to not talk over the entirity of the performances. Well done, Johnny and Tara! You are the true winners of the 2014 Winter Olympics! ( not the only one who thinks so, either.)

Bye-bye, Olympics. I’ve had my fill of pre-empted programming and bloated coverage of sports most of us don’t care about. I admire the athletes’ athleticism and commitment, but I’m otherwise not a fan. Still, y’all (the athletes) did good and entertained the world. But I’m not-so-secretly glad it’s basically all over but the crying.
