Okay, so I’ve filled up my DVR recording the Olympics. I looooove watching them. I’m probably going to go into major withdrawal when the Summer 2008 Olympic Games are over. Mostly, I can’t imagine someone going through years and years and years and years of training/conditioning for ONE sport, to be the best in ONE field. There’s so much pressure! I can hardly stand to watch it and they actually have to perform it!
It kind of makes me wonder…what am I good at? Nothin’ much. Except maybe Gilmore Girls trivia. And in the grand scheme of things, I’m thinking that’s not much…
In any case, the question on the table is this: Given my obsessive love of this year’s Olympic games, should I buy the Olympic Games Highlight DVD? And maybe the Michael Phelps commemorative DVD, too? I’m torn. In one sense, am I REALLY going to hunker down in my room for weeks at a time re-watching these events? Maybe not.
But… how cool would it have been to buy the DVD where Mary Lou Retton got perfect 10s and made history? Pretty darn cool. And if my kids have a research project and their topic (carefully guided by me, of course) is Olympic history, how great would it be to have everything on one (or two) commemortive DVD(s)?
There’s no need to go off the deep end, though, so I’d like feedback. I’ll reserve the right to make the final decision, but input is highly welcomed. 🙂
