What is it about the Olympics that is so attractive and compelling to everyone? For me, it’s the chance to display my ardent patriotism as the best athletes from America compete with the best athletes from the rest of the world. I love seeing so many people proudly display the American flag, wearing it on their uniform or waving it from the stands.
My favorite summer Olympic events are swimming, diving and gymnastics. While the events themselves are incredibly interesting, my mind usually wanders during those pre-event shots where the camera zooms in on the athletes, their family or their coaches. I decided to share a few of those random thoughts with you today! Please tell me I’m not the only one with less than singular focus. 🙂
One: I wonder if I could pull off a full face of gymnastics makeup?
I mean, seriously. Their makeup is always flawless and so girly. Laurie Hernandez has the most perfect cat eye I’ve ever seen!
Two: Why does the official “Rio” font look like an old Microsoft font from the 90’s?
It reminds me of an old school font. Anyone else think this?
Three: (watching the diving judges) I feel you, lady judge in a poncho. Being wet is the worst.
Four: I wonder what Aly Raisman’s mom has in her purse?
If I was going to be in a hot, crowded arena all day long, I’d be carrying around a huge bag of stuff to get me through the day. Wonder if she’d do a “what’s in my bag” video for my YouTube channel?
Five: What nail polish is Dana Vollmer wearing?
I doubt she has time to do much touching up while she’s in Rio, so I want to know what polish lasts for two weeks in the pool!
What random thoughts go through your mind while you watch the Olympics?
