I have been greatly enjoying the Olympics this year. The speed skating and the short track have been good for some drama. R and I have to cut back on our short track watching as the suspense is giving us ulcers. Also they fall down too much!
But I am really posting today to tell you about my new boyfriend, Joey Cheek. I first realized he was my boyfriend when he won gold in the 500 meters. If you missed this, you missed a great Olympic moment. He did his little skating, and then took off his skating sunglasses (I don't really understand why they wear these, but R said, "If you look fast, you ARE fast." I will believe him on that.) and pushed back his skating hood, looked up at his time and had the BEST happy/surprised look on his face. He totally didn't know how well he did, and then was so excited to see it. He just seems like such a nice, happy, friendly guy. And to top it all off, he donated both his bonuses from winning medals to an organization that helps disadvantaged youth through sports. Yep, he is my new boyfriend.
You can see the moment I speak of at this slideshow -- it is the seventh picture.
