I love the Olympics. Jeff and I even broke down and got cable because during the last olympics, we didn't have TV at all, and missing all the skiing and ice skating made me sad. So I convinced him (finding out he could get ESPN made it a little easier) to get TV so we could watch. But I've been a little annoyed by a few things at this games.
1. The women's beach volleyball attire. How is that a uniform?? Basically they are playing in their underwear. Come on, ladies, put on a shirt.
2. A few days ago, I learned that one of the most creative parts of the opening ceremony, the foot-shaped fireworks "walking" to the stadium, was actually fake; a computer generated sequence that took over a year to make was spliced into the rest of the footage. Lame.
3. In an even bigger display of fakeness, the cute girl who "sang" during the opening ceremony was just lip-synching, the real child singer apparently wasn't cute enough to take part. What??!? What kind of message is that? Double lame.
4. Why, oh why do the coolest events (swimming, gymnastics) have to come on after 10pm?? Now that we have TV, I can't turn it off. Because I might miss that last flying leap over the vault.
Sigh. and Yawn.
