After weeks of CBA and potential lockout talk, I’m not gonna lie – I miss the Olympics.
I miss Mr. Bean’s bit from the opening ceremony (I know his name is Rowan Atkinson).
I miss how cute it was when everyone thought Michael Phelps was finished after he lost his first race, and how he ended up being crowned the greatest Olympian ever.
I miss Christine Sinclair’s three goal performance against the Americans, and I miss her emotional reaction to Canada’s historic bronze medal win in extra time.
I miss the anticipation of watching Usain Bolt run the 100m dash, and then watching him break his own Olympic record as if anybody was even remotely surprised.
I miss Felix Sanchez’s gold medal win for the Dominican Republic in the 400m hurdles, and the sight of when he pulled a picture of his late grandmother out from under his vest.
What did you miss? Leave a comment in the comment box to let me know. I’ll be entering the comments into a randomizer and randomly selecting a winner. What does that winner win? The prize – a $50 pre-paid VISA card. Interested? Yeah you are. Dooo it!
