After a little over a fortnight, the Olympics are over. We, here in the U.S., are just waiting for the closing ceremonies to air on NBC.
The Chinese really know how to put on an opening and closing ceremony. The countdown to the closing ceremony was amazing, fireworks shot up into the sky, counting down to the event. The entire city of Beijing lit up showing off the The Bird’s Nest and The Cube.
I do have to admit I think it’s funny how you can’t get through a commercial break without NBC wanting to sell you their Michael Phelps video. I think his accomplishment is unbelievable but if I see the clip of him screaming and flexing his muscles one more time, I think I’ll ________. (you fill in the blank)
Now, what will fill the Olympic void? The U.S. Opens, the Browns’ season, the Buckeyes’ season, just to name a few. There’s plenty of great sporting events ahead. I can’t wait to see what happens at Flushing Meadows. It’s bound to be an exciting grand slam event.
