Olympic Fever!

Yeah, I’m kind of excited for the Winter Olympics! Could you image being an Olympic athlete right now, in Sochi…walking the walk in the opening ceremonies, preparing mentally for their competitions and don’t forget they can be social while going to the bathroom! Have you seen the pictures? Does that strike you as odd?

We’re pretty pumped here for the Olympics to begin; we have had a countdown going on, watched two events yesterday in the boardroom and we are all wore RED in the office today! GO CANADA GO! 


Family Spirit:

In my house we’ll be cheering for Canada and Great Britain. Though my husband because a Canadian citizen just 2 months ago, I’m pretty sure he’ll still be cheering on GB. The true test will come when it’s CAN vs GB – who will he cheer for?

Office Spirit: We had a meeting this afternoon about the Canadian Sport for Life Conference that most of our office went to but not me 😦 Lots of red to eat, red to drink, wearing red and talking….sport! Works for me!

Kids and Olympics:

This morning, I tried telling Lilly that the Olympics were starting today but she’s too little to remember watching the 2012 Summer Olympics. She LOVED watching the cycling and swimmers and often ask to watch both. When she was born and while we were in the hospital with her for a full week, we all got to watch the World Cup Soccer together (2010). She’s had a lot of sport watching behind her and hopefully a lot of sport playing ahead of her 😉

If you could participate in one Winter Olympic Sport, what would it be?

Are you watching the Opening Ceremonies today?

Do your children like to watch the Olympics?

  1. I LOVE the Olympics, although there are some aspects of this one that don’t jive with me. I will be watching to support our athletes though! And yes definitely watching the ceremony tonight as I pack for vacation. 🙂

    Fun story about Canada. When I got married it was during the last winter Olympics and we were married at a resort in Turks & Caicos. Of course there were people there from everywhere and I met so many cool Canadians! We ended up hanging out in one of the pubs with a group of them a couple times cheering on Team Canada!

    • Oh, there is lots that’s not jiving with me for these Olympics too. However, I think it’s important to support our athletes. Hope you have a great vacation!
      Sounds like your wedding was a lot of fun!

  2. “Don’t forget they can be social while going to the bathroom!” Haha best line. We’re getting ready to snuggle up by the fire and watch the opening ceremonies. A lot of Americans didn’t like the outfits designed by Ralph Lauren, but I would totally wear the USA sweater because I think it’s cute! If I could participate it would be in bobsled – that is quite a difficult and technical sport.

  3. Haha that’s so freaking awesome that you guys tuned in in your board room!! Jealous! I think it would be amazing if I could figure skate. I can barely glide from point A to point B, so this is all a complete dream 😉

  4. How cool! I love the Olympics too, but I haven’t been as patriotic. I cheer for the US, then GBR, then Canada, then whoever looks amazing. I basically just like everything about the Olympics and almost every athlete… 🙂
