I love the Olympics. I always have and I always will. I don’t worry about the purity, innocence, commercialism and petty country squabbles setting a good tv backdrop. I love the Olympics and it is that simple. Some reason I am able to suspend my own reality to enjoy the Olympics and even tear up at set moments. It might be my exposed heel but I am proud to wear that a little higher. No apology or explanation is needed.
The opening ceremony for the 2010 Vancouver Games were tonight and I have enjoyed the hell out of them. No real reason to try to top China so might as well do your own thing and Vancouver did it well. Better than well.
I like KD Lang but I cannot listen to Hallelujah without having some serious pangs for Mr. Buckley. So here it is to you kind and gentle sir. I hope to hear this strumming quietly wherever I might end up resting my weary soul someday….enjoy and sleep tight knowing I have a smile on my face tonight.
