I have to say, Visa nailed it with their “Go World” motto for the games. I am right there with them. I SO love the Olympics and even if the USA is miles out of contention, I still get all kinds of twirled up for the other countries in the hunt.
I’m not sure my grin could have been wider at the end of the C2 canoe competition this afternoon – seriously, how could you NOT be happy for GBR in their unadulterated joy of getting medals?
Uchimura KILLED it in the men’s all around in gymnastics, Nguyen earned his silver like a boss, and Levya kicked ass for the USA bronze. I can’t help but be giddy for all three. (And I couldn’t help but notice that the guys tend to go high-five their competitors more than the ladies do. Ladies, take a page.)
Sure, I would love it if it was USA! 24/7. But we have a whole damn world out there giving it every last thing that they have.
And how can you not congratulate that?
