(Tara Lipinksi and Johnny Weir - 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Figure Skating Commentators)
The whole time I'm watching the Olympics...and it was a LONG time I watched it (on two different channels - nite and day)...I'm thinking "Sochi Olympics" + "Social Media" = "Sochial Media" - but they never once said it.
They said their little Twitters were trending...going on and on about what Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski were wearing when they gave their Figure Skating reports...but not ONE time did I hear them utter "Sochial Media".
Seriously...what the hell was wrong with them?
Anyway...the Olympics are over and damn...damn...they put on a great Closing Ceremony show...and they even poked fun of themselves with the last Olympic ring not opening (technical issue at the Opening Ceremony...the fifth ring never "blossomed" into a ring like the others). I loved it! The giant life-like Teddy-Ruxpinesque bear was...it was...I don't know. How did they make it move like that? I swear it was like they had a giant guy in a bear costume. I'm bowled over. I don't know who thinks of these spectacular sets and choreography and whatnot...but I do know one thing...
...they didn't think of "Sochial Media"!
...but I have to admit - Tara and Johnny...you guys rocked! (I'm sure they are reading this blog right now...that's why I addressed them here.) Loved his clothes. Loved...loved...loved every single outfit. And they were both soooooo fun together...such natural chemistry. I hope they ditch Scott Hamilton and whoever that other guy was - next time around. In fact, I hope they pair them up in every single Olympics...everything...everything. I don't care if it's diving or gymnastics...curling or bobsled...Summer or Winter games. Get rid of everyone else and hire these two for every single thing! They were great! Plus they shut up when the skaters danced. They knew better. My ears are still ringing from Scott Hamilton's banshee-like screeches -- with his yelling at the top of his lungs over the music...and I have tinnitus! He makes Sam Kinison's voice sound melodic in comparison. Make it stop! Make it stop! Please God, please...make it stop! (Yes, God is reading my blog, too.)
Whew! I am done now with my little rant.
Now...go on over to "We Work for Cheese" and see what everyone else came up with for today's "Social Media" prompt.
