Aly Raisman's parents cracked me up in the video below. I get so nervous just sitting here on my couch, watching a complete stranger compete. I can't even imagine sitting in the stands watching a family member compete. No way. No how.
Mr. Gherkin is one of those who checks the medal count and the olympic updates every five minutes. It drives me nuts. He leaves no room for surprise. I call it cheating. Maybe it's not technically cheating, but it certainly takes the fun out of it.
It's most annoying when there's a close race, like when two swimmers are neck and neck, and I'm whooping and hollering, cheering on USA, and Mr. Gherkin pipes in, "I know what happens here." Just by the way he says it I can tell what the outcome will be. It's so annoying.
I literally just plopped down on the couch tonight to finally tune in to the olympics, he grabs his iPad and brags that he knows what happens tonight. So I'm 'bout to take this boy out back. Be back soon.
