Say what you will but these Winter Olympic athletes are badass. As Seth Meyers says its 48 different ways of sliding but you gotta have serious strength to control that sliding. Much of what you see is people versus elements and that is a whole new element to the competition. I’d like to see Tom Brady or Lebron James go cross-country skiing or do snowboarding. This is a tough set of games and you have to be up to the weather and physical challenge day in and day out. This isn’t for the weak at heart.
The first Winter Olympics ever held in South Korea will kick off in PyeongChang on Friday, February 9, 2018. Athletes from around the world will be going for the gold. I’m a fan of figure skating and the bobsled racing. It’s going to be a good couple of weeks of action. May this be a time of peaceful sportsmanship.
Courtesy of Google – China, Australia and the USA are in the top 3. These games have been pretty exciting. I am enjoying the swimming, soccer/football, diving, archery and basketball.
NBC Olympics presents coverage of the Opening Ceremony of the Games of the XXXI Olympiad from Maracana Stadium on Friday, August 5 at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT on NBC (in the United States, check local listings).
Tonight the Rio Olympics officially start in Rio. Athletes from around the world will gather to compete for gold, silver and bronze. It’s always an exciting time to see these games with ancient roots. May the athletes and others gathering and be safe from harm and that peace will be the theme of the events.
With the Olympics starting tonight in Rio this seems appropriate. From 1982 this is “Rio” by Duran Duran.
Tonight we watched Bruce Jenner interview. Jenner won the 1976 Olympic decathalon and was the poster boy for athletics in this country. He was featured on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
I was impressed with the candor and feelings expressed. Complex issues of biology, sociology, psychology and personality with the life of Bruce. He wants to live life on his terms despite the pressures of society, family and community.
