Olympics 2012

"Wow, this women's individual foil fencing is intense."

The weird thing is that I actually said this. As a rule, I don't usually follow anything women do in sports, but I happened to turn on the TV and there was this fencing match. Despite the fact that every time that one girl scored I thought the other girl had scored, it was kind of interesting. And the reason I was able to see it is because the Olympics are on.

We are right in the middle of the Olympics. Competitors in gymnastics and diving have been defying gravity ever since those 30 Mary Poppins's fought Voldemort. The sport that I have caught the most of, however, has been swimming, or as it's more commonly known, Phelps versus Lochte. Phelps has 22 medals, 18 of which are gold. But do you know what? The gold medals aren't solid gold. They are gold plated silver. And then it only makes sense that the silvers are silver plated bronze, and the bronze are bronze plated chocolate. In other words, first is the worst and second is the best.

The Olympics are a fun distraction from real sports. It's a shame we only have them once every two years (winter/summer). But it does make it easier to catch up on all of my TV shows.

P.S. McDonald's is sponsoring the Olympics. That's like Coca-Cola sponsoring a telethon for diabetes.
