Happy Valentine’s Day
I love the Olympics. Summer or Winter, it doesn’t matter.
The competition, the sports you don’t get to see all that often. The top athletes being great on a world stage. You can let yourself feel that blind patriotism that most days you’re ashamed to show. The drama! The stories! The random people you’ve never heard of that are literally the greatest in the world shot into stardom. The weird objectification of bodies that we are totally OK with for like two weeks. The Morgan Freeman Visa commercials. It’s primal. Shaun White is back. Chloe Kim is dumpstering women. The Koreas are playing nice. Speed skating still GOATing. Curling is basically just a fancy lawn game. Twitter moments are lit. I love it, I love it, I love it.
Now sure, IOC is SUPER corrupt and the world is a mess but I WILL NOT LET YALL NEGATIVE, PERMA-DEPRESSED, SENSITIVE 20-SOMETHINGS RUIN THIS FOR ME.
Go win all the things.
