Short Track

The Olympics Reimagined...by Me

OtherJosele DiazComment

So I was sitting on my couch, minding my own business, watching the Winter Olympics in all their glory.  I was so enthralled watching short track speedskating (my personal favorite), ski jump, snowboard cross, and curling.  Yes that curling, the shuffleboard on ice that is somehow an Olympic event.

We are watching the best, world class athletes from all over the globe compete in something that they’ve been training for for roughly 3 and a half years. They put their body on the line every time they go out there (except curling haha) and we cheer for the name on the front of the jersey, not the name on the back of the jersey. 

After a few ice cold adult beverages, I realize something that I had never thought of before.
