Love the Olympics
I had always wanted to be an Olympian when I was growing up. Guess I didnt want it that bad lol, or I'd have been there.
There have been some really cool events that I dont remember seeing in the last winter Olympics and some old favorites too. I love the snowboarding and downhill skiing the best. The super crazy skiing high jump thing always makes me wonder just how crazy you have to be to say "I want to do that". Nuts.
Anyway, I saw an interview with Shawn White, the Gold medal snowboarder tonight and he said something that made me think. He said he was waiting for a call from the white house, he wanted to be invited to visit. Now this happens with a lot of sports pro's who've reached the pinnacle. And I think all them Gold medals is a pinnacle. So I dont think the request is that far off. But like I said its made me think.
I dont typically get political on this blog. My blogroll is definately a majority to the right so I figure you all know where I stand. Not that I dont appreciate the opinions of all, I just may not agree. And I do actually agree with a few left sided stances. Hence the reason I'm "just right of center", but firmly there...
Anyway back to what Shawn requested and why I was thinking. How rude or disrespectful would it be if I were an Olympian and won a shit ton of Gold medals and the White House called and said the President wanted to meet me and I said, thanks, but No Thanks.
I'd giggle as I said it too. lol
