I am very sad because we had to sell our tickets to see short track speed skating, where I could have professed my undying love to Apolo Ohno today. They pushed one of our events back several hours, so we ended up having to choose between short track and long track, and Mr. FGD ended up choosing long track. It ended up being a good choice (see below), but, can we first have a moment of silence for the lovefest that I missed with Apolo. I so would have rocked his fast track world. Hee hee.
As a side note, my other boyfriend Shaun White kicked some boo-tay today. I'm so proud of him. Snowboarding was the one event I insisted to Mr. FGD that we get tickets to, and of course it was the one sport that was impossible for us to get tickets to. Booooooooooo. No worries though. When I'm banging some flying tomato ass later I won't even remember that we missed the event. (Sorry, I might be a little drunky right now).
We went to long track speed skating today, or something like that? Bear with me here, while I put the wine down.
Here's Mr. FGD outside the stadium. I took the first picture, and then told him, let's do it again, this time without the double-chin. Aren't I an awesome wife? Who wants to marry me? Who? Who?
The re-do. Much better, right?
And me. I've had lots of practice with avoiding the double-chin shot in photos.
Some photos of the long track rink in Richmond:
This is Shani Davis, the American fave, whooshing by us while warming up:
This blurry picture doesn't do him, or his massive, rock-hard thighs, justice. He's hot.
This is another blurry photo of him, after he won the gold metal. Mr. FGD and I agreed that a gold metal is a free-pussy-pass for life. My apologies for the crassness of this post; I've had too much wine, I swear. I would *never* talk like this sober. Hee hee.
So here are a bunch of photos I took from the "flower" ceremony. (The actual medal ceremony is always the next night.) Excuse the blurry photos. I was very excitedly waving my American flag as I took these pics (you know, because I do that now, now that foolio George W. is gone. See said post below.)
This is Shani and hottie Chad Hedrick coming out of the basement for the flower ceremony. Can you tell?? It's pretty blurry. :(
Some flag-waving goodness:
Shani is the first back to back speed skater gold metal winner, or something. NBC is on in the background, so I'm just spouting what I'm hearing, my friends. Anyway, he's cute, so I'll post some more pics.
Before the speed skating fun, Mr. FGD dragged me to Stanley Park. I don't know if you know this about me, but I don't do outdoor stuff. Could someone let Mr. FGD know? This, after all, is what I thought about the whole outing:
But, I have to say, the boring ass trip to the park was made slightly better when Mr. FGD started freaking out and bouncing up and down saying, "give me the camera! it's a bald eagle! do you know how rare bald eagles are?!" My friends, I'd like to introduce you what I'm pretty sure is a seagull that Mr. FGD thought was a bald eagle.
Once again, here's what I have to say about that:
