so, i was going to make you all a list of my favorite (and by favorite, i mean most easy on the eyes) 2008 Olympics athletes. but i barely made it through the USA men’s swim team and i already had a list that was way too long. and i was starting to get all hot and bothered by all the chevrons. THE CHEVRONS!
and then i figured that i was in my place of business so i should turn my attention to something less, well, hot…like, what the fuck is up with the water polo…what are they HATS? CAPS? are they used to protect the head? the ears? why so much attention to the ears? you could get hit in the nose just as easily, right? shouldn’t they be wearing something more all around protective? or do water polo players just really really like their ears?
also…can we talk for a minute about these girls?
these SIXTEEN-year-old girls. ahem. that one all the way on the left? yeah…she looks about SEVEN. and i even heard that one of the girls is missing a tooth. not missing a tooth as in it was knocked out in a fist fight…but missing a tooth the way my seven-year-old daughter Emily looks after she’s had a tooth fall out.
also? can we talk about poor Yang Peiyi…the 7-year-old girl who sang “Hymn to the Motherland” at the Opening Ceremonies in front of the entire world?
but the cute little girl apparently wasn’t CUTE ENOUGH, and because of her buck teeth, was swapped for another girl. for this one, Lin Miaoke.
“This was a last-minute question, a choice we had to make,” the ceremony’s musical designer, Chen Qigang, said. “Our rehearsals had already been vetted several times – they were all very strict. When we had the dress rehearsals, there were spectators from various divisions, including above all a member of the politburo who gave us his verdict: we had to make the swap.”
what the fuck ever.
on second thought, i think i’ll get back to the USA swimmers and their chevrons…
ps. Ryan Lochte is hotter than Michael Phelps. (discuss)….
also…how do you pronounce Beijing? (i know how i pronounce it, and i know how the stupid dude on CBC pronounces it. i need to know who is right…i’ll help you out a bit. he pronounced the “j” like in “jack” or in vaGina. i pronounce the “j” like in viSIon, softly, like Borat’s VaGine)
