(Yawn) Staying Up Way Too Late Watching The Olympics In China....

Remember When the Red Sox Were In The Last Two World Series Chases?  Kinda Feel That Way With The Olympics.

Don't get me wrong, it has been fun watching the events with two sons but you pay the price the next day when you are up to midnight glued to the tube.  Maybe a Realtor Olympics where you see Joe Broker able to list three properties, produce the blogs, world class videos, do a mass media broadcast and present three offers to buy by 5pm that same day would be something pretty incredible to watch.  That's if you are a real estate broker.  The effort to train, to focus on the gold, silver or bronze medal, and to represent your country with pride and tears of joy when they hoist the USA flag and play the National Anthem is pretty incredible. Do you have the same drive, pride, work ethic in your job as a broker, banker, stager, attorney or marketing guru here in Activerain?  Soar high like an eagle above the rest. Work harder, do better, adopt a can do attitude and tune out the media and steer clear of others who hold your back!

I've been tired this whole week too!  Love the Olympics!

   I well understand....I have actually been at an Olympics...the goose bumps still happen...the tears fall during the national anthem...and the lump in my throat stays until the last athlete finishes their race.....AND....I still get a lump in my throat....and sometimes the tears still fall when I can call the buyer and say...."The house you wrote on will be your new home."

I share your fatigue.  Every night I tell myself that the highlights will be replayed on the morning news; however, that is not as exciting as watching some of the live events at night!

Andrew, So that must be why I have been so tired all week.

1-1:30 am glued to the set, hiding behind a pillow in anticipation, peeking over the fringe, loud whooping hollers wake up sleeping dogs. Yep! I am a huge fan of gymnastics, swimming and diving! Go USA!!! 

The olympians certainly inspire me to do better! (Not to mention to use the gym membership more!!!)

Andrew - I keep trying to turn the TV off, but am unable to do so.  Losing a few hours sleep is well worth the price to see the best athletes in the world compete for their countries.

I absolutely love the Olympics as well. I find it fascinating that we can actually watch these events unfold live in our living rooms - from China!!!  Did you see the concentration both of our female Gymnasts had leading up to each rotation?  How about the routine Michael Phelps does before each swim?  He has a routine and strategy that works very well for him - a true winner.  We can all learn from these oustanding individuals.

Glad everyone is following our country!  It is an incredible feeling to see the camera zoom in with the medal winner singing along....proud to be an American and respect the other countries that have made the games so captivating to watch with the human interest side of the media presentation! (Off to take a little nap to bone up for next session)  Folks watching during lunch too!

Olympic fever is running deep in Aiken, our little area along the Savannah River hosted the Winter Training Camp for the US Equestrian Team this year and we have few local Athletes in Track & Field and in Target Sports in Beijing and Hong Kong.  I have been proud to be an American watching the respectful interaction between our Athletes and the rest of the World and listening to Kobe give interviews in several languages and seeing the level of cultural artistry and admiration of China has been inspiring.  I can't decide if I should go after a CIPS designation or sign-up to learn Chinese.  The Olympics definitely inspire me, to stay up until 2am and to take that energy, excitement and hope into the rest of my day.  God Bless America!

Everyone here is tired..from late night entertainment and country pride..but think of the olympians..time zone wise, working their tails off..the stakes are high.  They trained all their life for this counting on your to many gold medals do you have?  Great to be an American!
