For Michelle

My friend Michele missed out on much of the Beijing Olympics because she lives in Norway and it was not covered as obsessively as it is in the U.S. (NBC paid $500 million for the rights, you'd better believe they were going to show it non-stop). I love the Olympics. The pomp. The circumstance. The pagentry.

Here are some amazing images from the games that will stick with me. I grabbed most of them from This is Life blog. It's great and I suggest you check it out as it's always worth a visit.

Wow, these are all beautiful! What a spectacle.

I see you did manage to squeeze in a pic of sexy wrestlers!

Chris said...

Of course! I couldn't find any great shots of the water polo players--seriously, what's up with that?

Michele said...

Chris, those pictures are spectacular. Mega-spectacular. Now I'm even more sad that I missed so much of what looks like one of the best opening and closing ceremonies ever. (Is this where I make a joke like, "Brings a whole new meaning to 'Made In China?'" Or is that just not even funny?)

Thank you for thinking of me. And of the wrestlers. Because I think of them, too. ;-)
