Friday Five – Random thoughts about the Olympic Trials for Track and Field.

Hi there. I know what you’re thinking, “Why are you watching the Olympic Trials for Track and Field?” I know. I was wondering the same thing myself.  Truth be told, it’s mostly because Frank wants to and I’m too lazy to get off the futon. Mostly I play WwF or read while he watches and occasionally I look up from my game/book to make a witty observation. (One was that the running chicks don’t seem to have belly buttons.)

Today, I thought I would share a few of observations I’ve made with you:

  1. These people are impressively fast. I realize it’s the Olympic Trials and all, but man! ZOOOOM! It’s like watching the Road Runner run.
  2.  That Evan Jager guy has amazing hair. Seriously. Here’s proof. (I got it from here.)evan jager hair
  3. Lance Brooks and Michael Phelps? Clearly they’re brothers. At the very least cousins! Here’s my proof. (Lance photo from here, Michael photo from herelance michael collage
  4. The Pole Vault might be my new favorite thing to watch on TV and if I had more upper body strength and less tush, I’d totally want to try it. Doesn’t it look like fun? (From here)APTOPIX_US_Track_Trials_Athletics_025cc
  5. The Steeplechase race is something I might actually like to do for fun. It involves jumping over stuff and water.

No, I never thought I’d sit through Olympic Trials in Track and Field, but hey, why not? Clearly I’m finding some entertainment in it!

What sport or show did you think you’d probably not watch, but found interesting anyway?

I spend a lot of time on the pool deck and making treats in my kitchen amongst other things.

    I once walked into the living room and sat down while X was watching competitive bull riding. I thought it was a little hokey, but hey, I was in love.

    I drew the line when I heard an announcer say “daaag-umet.” I don’t love anyone that much.

    I wonder what kind of shampoo that one guy uses….

    Hockey. My brother begged me to go to a game once and I loved it!

  4. Those captions are making me CRACK up!

  5. Taudrey says:

    Curling. Yes, curling. With the ice and the brooms and the stone and the Canadians. Also, Australian Football, but that’s not as much of a stretch.
