{8.8.08 world inspiration}

Seriously, I'm one of the least athletic competitive people I know. You think I'm joking? My saying is, "if you want the dang ball, just take it!" I really could care less about winning (let me clarify - winning an athletic game). I appreciate others that have that competitive strain - good for them! I just don't care, so by all means just "have the ball". That being said, I love the Olympics. I just wouldn't want to compete. I get overly excited about the bright colours, beautiful images and the heart behind representing our own! {Actually, maybe it's the Opening Ceremony I really love about the Olympics...hmm.}

Have a splendid weekend, and if you're watching the Games, soak up all the beautiful colours and unique wonders of the different cultures!
Do you like watching the Olympics?? If so, do you have a favourite part?

I love the Olympics because I like seeing people from different cultures come together and celebrate each other's victories. It gives me hope in people! Do you know what I mean? I hope I'm making sense! :)

How funny that you blogged about the Olympics....I am in the process of doing that now!

I love the athletic part of the Olympics (especially the summer games).

Favorites: marathon, track and field, swimming (I love a swimmer's body!!) and gymnastics....oh heck, I really like it all!

The athleticism of these individuals is inspiring (esp. for me!)

Gymnastics: the floor routines to be exact! And I LOVE the hurdles in track and field!
Sadly my tv only gets channel 9, so I must drag myself over to my parents to catch any of it! I was going to go for our family shin-dig to watch the openings...but then I fell asleep! Bummer!

Ph Tal, you would love the "colors" of the Olympics. You're such a girl. :)

OMG. I am so with you on the lack of drive to win at sports, but funny enough I was busy learning how to ref soccer while the opening of the Olympics was happening. I am not sure if I am going to pass the test tomorrow or not...I have been stuck with a teacher who doesn't care about teaching but only about showing off about how cool he is and how he puts people in line...I have to spend an extra few hours studying now to learn the things he was supposed to teach us today...AHHHHHHHHH!!!
