As London gears up for the Olympics, are you ready to cheer the UK on? After all, the last time the United Kingdom hosted the game was post war 1948.
I’m all for cheering on my country. I’m patriotic if nothing else. I can’t get enthused at sport though, I seem to draw the same mental blank I get when I hear the word “football.”
My eyes kind of glaze over and I tune out. Nothing to do with you, just the subject you’re on.
Football, you say? Zzzzzzzzz……
The same can be said with the Olympics. I can imagine PLAYING sport. I’d like to do that, and can see the appeal. Actually sitting and watching it though?!
No, I’m falling asleep before you’ve even uttered the first syllable.
My 8 year old is suitably impressed, though. From Olympic fact sheets, to colouring in pages, to sitting and watching the Games. he’s interested in them all.
Me? Not so much.
After saying that though, I hope the UK brings home a a few medals. Come on, Team GB…..
