This was me before the Olympics:
This is me now that the Olympics have begun:
I love the Olympics. Especially the summer Olympics.
I’m a former competitive swimmer and coach.
My daughter is a former gymnast. She has even dabbled in rowing since we live so close to the Atlanta ’96 venue.
My boys are big into soccer and baseball.
I also love the internet. I log on in the morning to check emails and do a little banking. I log on in the afternoon to craft a blog post and sneak in a little blog reading.
My home page was msn.com. “Was” because they kept telling me the results of the swimming competition before I could see it on TV. So, I switched to yahoo.com. They were a little more vague about their headlines. Until a few days ago.
So, now, my home page is Google. With their cute, clever images:
I hate knowing the results before I’ve had a chance to experience it with the rest of the television viewing audience. Today when I logged on I found out the the women’s gymnastics team blah-blah-blah-blah and Michael Phelps blah-blah-blah-blah and it all won’t be televised until this evening.
That’s it. I’m done. No more news for me until after the Olympics are over.
I sure hope nothing earth-shattering happens between now and then.
If I need to know about it, would someone please shoot me an email?
