American Idol....and stalls

I just wanna start by saying how much I enjoy the Olympics and all the pomp and circumstance, but mostly the "come together" moments as a nation...kinda gives me hope. This years opening ceremony left me a little indifferent. I totally got all the symbolism, I truly did, but a homage to the national healthcare, that was weird. Couple of things before I get to my main complaint...

Why is the Olympic torch, the symbol of all nations and cornerstone of Greek origins stationed in the track and field venue? I read that when the track and fields competions start, the torch will be moved to one end of the field....really? Could if have killed the powers that be to hoist it up, and perch it up high where ALL people can see and admire it. I actually liked how it was lit this time, very clever, but they could have done that up high...children are young, they can run upstairs.
Give the people what they want, the privilege and right to see the Olympic torch flame shinning long and bright over their city.

And speaking of the people....Would it hurt for the Queen to crack a smile...Jeeze, little lovely children were singing, "God Bless the Queen" and she still had that stick up her bum.

Anywho.....Ryan Seacrest. Really? What the heck does he have to do with sports? I swear, he must be related to someone in power because he is so out of place I just wanna throw my shoe at the TV every-time I see him. Actually, I wanna do that anyways. Bad choice NBC....really bad.

I'm Just Sayin'


  1. I remember the day when the Olympics was a big thing in this house. It's been a long time since I've watched. All I see are dollars signs. People are struggling all over the place, to keep their homes and keep food on the table, but there's always money for the Olympics, professional sports, etc...

    I can't help thinking of all the things that money could do!

  2. I aint big on Pomp and Circumstnce but I love competition. The Olympics bring out the best in the world. It also brings out the worst commentary and unneccesary pressure on the participants.

    They win a Silver medal which means they are prolly the second best in the whole wide world and the the questions are, "How do you feel about everyone saying you suck?" Unbelievable.

    I would like to see a few of the more obscure sports tho. Am about sick of swimming and BBall and Gymastics.

    Lets see some air rifle. LOL

  3. ROFL @ you saying you wanted to throw your shoe at Ryan Seacrest!

    I am probably the only person in American that doesn't care anything about the Olympics....LOL


  4. Oh Bunny you crack me up...You speak the truth! We were all talking to the t.v., "SMILE!!!!" she didn't listen :)

    And Ryan Seacrest kills me whenever he shows up anywhere...I'm with ya girl!

  5. Hey Bunny! Oooo Halloween was very fun! It always stresses me out though...we get such different numbers of Trick-or treaters that I worry all night that we will run out...we bounced from 135 down to 85 down to 65 and then last year was 45 so this year when we got 95 I felt so bad I had to turn the lights off at 8:00! I felt so mean! :) But they were all so cute coming to the door! Such a fun night :)

    Hope all is well with you...seeing your post again really makes me miss the Olympics!!!


Go 'head...say it already!
