Cowart's Common Room
Olympic Fever

I think I have a touch of Olympic fever. I caught it off my friend Gill who stayed over yesterday and she persuaded me that I would enjoy watching a bit of sport on TV! We watched some cycle racing in which Team GB won some medals. Apparently I was waving my arms and shouting but I was so feverish I don't remember this.

I am taking it easy today. I may watch a bit of swimming to see if I still have any symptoms otherwise I shall go back to normal life playing Scrabble and Bridge.

CalicoKate's Avatar Oh it has been brilliant utterly brilliant Rosie B&I sitting on the sofa hearts in mouths and cheering like mad when GB are in play. I will add that I in no way watch any sport at any time bar a few Wimblydon matches! Laughing But I am loving the 'lympcs despite being very sceptical abut the cost of it all, and just how much of an effect on the economy it was supposed to have. Scotland was 'promised' that we would have a really busy & touristy summer - we aren't in spite of having good weather. M&D are down in bookings for B&B not up, and we were able to book at short notice in a usually v busy touristy town. But I love the GB-ness of it all!

Fennie's Avatar So many golds that we are now becoming blasť. (what does that word mean? It's French isn't it? Blaser = to what? - reaches for French dictionary. Blaser, it says, means to make blasť. So how far does that get you?) Still all fun. Well done Team GB!

Withy Brook's Avatar I have been glued to the tele too, much of the time. The Triathlon this morning held me glued to the screen. For younger brother Jonnie to get a bronze behind his elder brother Alastair, having had to stand still for 15 secs as a penalty for a minor misdemeanor, was - to use the current expression - unbelievable!
I know that your part of Scotland, CK, has had a drought and good weather, but the general impression for the whole country is cold and wet, so I can understand people going abroad, or foreigners not coming for hols. I am sure that you can't blame it on the Olympics, really.

Arosebyanyothername's Avatar I've watched some gymnastics - quite nice, now some mincing horses (dressage) rather silly, who is doing the sport - woman or beast? Where is the swimming? I am feeling much better now, the fever has subsided.
Back to Scrabble and, if it wasn't raining, walking Rufus. Very Happy

Westerwitch's Avatar I tried watching it and was bored very quickly - apart from when I watch Murray win his gold medal - then I had Olympic Fever - but I have recovered very quickly and there is no sign of it returning.
