If only I'd remembered to pack some tiny American flags

It's finally time for my biyearly Olympic opening ceremony party! 

A few thoughts:

I haven't decided what my Olympic ring snack will be but at least I don't have to worry about the shape or colors. 

The Russians chose "Hot. Cold. Yours." as the motto for the games. Could someone explain to me what this means? I appreciate that they're trying to include the common man with yours, but hot and cold? How many winter events are hot? I am so confused. 

I wonder how many times the announcers will say, "He's really going for the gold this year!" And the other athletes aren't? 

All they have to do is show a video of an athlete overcoming adversity with inspiring music playing in the background and I'm done. Sign me up as president of their fan club. Well done, NBC. 

And finally, the Norwegian curling team is dressed to impress.
More power to those who can rock the red, white and blue chevron.

I am all for the sappy adversity stories too! Even if they don't have a chance in hell, I am rooting for them all the way.

And my oh my someone from the future is going to see that chevron picture and think everyday people actually dressed like that. I'm a bit appalled.

Dying. All of this is so hysterical.
