At first I wasn't going to watch them but I did break down and watch the OP ceremonies, which were quite good btw. But I had no plans to watch LOTS of events at the time. Now i'm greatful that THAT didn't come to pass! Because at OP ceremonies, how come the americans came out in those outfits? And did they look like cosplsy outfits to you? Yeah right, more like a cosplay idea gone HORRIBLY wrong! lol And what about britian? Their outfits made them look like Takuto from star driver. I had no idea that they prided themselves on wearing white like that to represent their country! And ours, why suits and a tie? You saw the other countries with their ethnic, glamourous, outfits, that were akin to their character so why'd we have to come out in those school uniforms? Have we changed THAT much as a society? But better get of this topic, I could make a blog post just on THAT issue!
I saw some of the swimming events. Apparently Michel Phelps is now the most medaled Olympic swimmer ever or something (maybe even just general athlete, if that's the case, please let me know) so congrats to him, even though I dont really care about swimming, except when i'm in the water and dont feel like drowning. I also saw the women's backstroke, and it made me think of some dirty jokes that I shared with some of you if you follow my twitter and facebook account. And this morning w/ women's diving, i'm starting to feel like Konata's dad from Lucky Star.
Saw some Beach Volleyball yesterday and made me think of my uncle who used to do it all the time and between you and me, will probably get into doing it more in the coming months and years. And these olympics, they're the only time where you see both beach AND indoor volleyball on at the same time! And now we move onto the track and field events, the main core of the whole olympics, the original events from the 1st olympics. (I think)
And not to put to much out there but how many people's got Tokyo for getting the 2020 Olympics? (which will be decided next year!)
