At my daughters school they had a launch day and really got behind making this a big event for the kids. I'm sure most schools would be doing something along the same lines, but this is our first year so we are all a bit excited!
So my little one was happy to don the Green & Gold and really get into the spirit of it all.
|Not a fan of the flash on the camera.|
So there we all were bleary eyed and up watching the opening ceremony. Which I thought was really good!
I got into the spirit of it by making up some Green & Gold pancakes for the family! I did have a photo but it got deleted by accident :( It was very creative of me!
What I have found these game though is the really harsh comments and disappointment that is coming out of commentary team and even some athletes.
I am not a sports person at all so I cant understand how winning silver or bronze would be so disappointing. But really guys lighten up! You're the best in your field in your country - that's why your at the Olympics!!!
We the public watching think you're just ace and take our hats off to you.
On the other hand I don't take my hat off to the Channel 9 Swimming commentator's. I have vented a couple times on Facebook about this so I wont be so harsh here today, BUT...they were probably the worst I have have even seen and heard. To be honest the whole coverage on 9 has been a let down. I had to ask my hubby what channel even had the games as there was no hype into the lead up, no major countdown, nothing. I guess that was the first sign of what was to come.
I was at a friends place last weekend and they have Foxtel...OMG what a difference. We watched some trampolining (my daughter loved!!) and had so many choices of what to watch!
Guess that is the way of the world now, you have to pay for a decent service.
Well I am not sad about the lack of "gold" our athletes are bringing home. They are just great examples to show you're kids of what hard work can get you. And I don't believe you always have to have the top prize to be tops!
On another note I am devo that Being Lara Bingle has now finished...honestly liking that show. You can hate me now if you like!
