I’m not normally one for sports. I will watch an occasional football game or baseball game, but I LOVE the Olympics. It’s almost like I don’t care the sport…I’ll watch it (Dressage?!). My favorite event, naturally, is the Opening Ceremonies. The spectacle and pageantry is amazing. The Beijing games really raised the bar on complexity and technicality. Now, director Danny Boyle has released plans regarding real grass and real animals on an English countryside right in the middle of Olympic Stadium. Incredible.
Of course, I also like all the hot men. I can’t really help that. lol.
Here are some of my favorite images from 2008. I can’t wait for this year!
