Just Another Snippet...

Before the Games get started for today.

Is it just my imagination or are all the competitors, especially those on the slopes, all handsome or beautiful and have great teeth and beautiful complexion?

Or is my eyesight going south just like the rest of me? If they are all purty I may have to rethink my feelings about living in a world with snow and ice 6 months a year.

They are gorgeous and multi-lingual. Where are the impoverished dreamer athletes from my childhood?

Tatersmama said...

If THAT is what being around snow and ice does to you, I'm moving to Siberia! Lord knows I have the insulation.

Lonicera said...

No Helen, it's quite simple - you've got snow blindness from all that viewing. Switch over to Sesame Street for five minutes, then back again, and you'll see that the competitors are no better looking than they were thirty years ago when Franz Klammer was the star...
Jeez that downhill race with four guys trying to total themselves was something else, wasn't it?

Oh to be 20 or 30 years younger!

Reddirt Woman said...

Caution that's a good question. The dreamer/athletes from the olden days had to work to get to meets and didn't have a "federation" behind them... It's all about business nowdays.

Katie we probably ought to both go. It might be easier dealing with the hot flashes in Siberia, too.

Oh yeah, Caroline... Franz Klammer.. ummhumm. I have no idea why they put in that race with the atheletes on skis andd armed with poles... snow board cross was crazy enough but skis are long and poles are dangerous.

Hetty, I'm more like oh to be 40 years younger...

I love all of you for putting up with my crazy snippets.

And they are all built like gods & goddesses! No your eyesight is fine, they are also very youthful!

I think the new sport in the Olympics is "ENDORSEMENTS". So you not only have to be good at your chosen sport but you need to be good looking or beautiful for the sponsors to hire you.

Well, I'm goin' to Siberia with you and Katie. Let's hope there's no food there and we'll come back thin and gorgeous. Not sure how we'll work in the 30 years younger part but I'll squint when I look at you if you'll do the same for me, Sass!

Howdy Helen

Nope it's not your imagination !
They are all almost perfect ,a reflection of the times we live in .
I really feel like I am part of some unknown ancient generation at times .
People use to really work hard to overcome obstacles to participate in these events .
I'm not saying they don't work hard .
Where are all the fabulous stories of the unsung heroes ?
Oh well enough of that .
Have a great day my blogging budddy .
Hugs from Texas
Happy Trails
