So I started a whole post about how upset I was about the Olympic coverage and how terrible it is. But you know what? Just go read this:
That pretty much sums up how I feel. Oh and there's also this:
The U.S. Already Had Gold Locked Up After This Disaster From Russia’s Floor World Champion, So NBC Didn’t Show It To You
Amazing omission on NBC's fault. Especially considering they elected not to show us amazing footage such as this:
|Their complete shock at watching the Floor World Champion fall. Instead we just got lots of images of them crying afterward without the full context as to why.|
However even that is not quite as glaring as the fact that we've seen exactly ZERO still rings performances. To put it in perspective: Imagine if they didn't air 1/5 of the superbowl instead showing Ryan Secrest having dinner with one of the players. Pretty ridiculous and awful, right? And yet that's exactly what happened last night:
This was not shown on their coverage. Even though this routine led to Danell Leyva's amazing comeback from a pommel horse disaster to claim a nearly impossible Bronze Medal for the USA. Screw you, NBC.
I could go on. And on. And on. But I'll stop there and move on to something that I am not frustrated with at all:
I decided on the Fragile Heart in the Daiquiri colorway. You guys I am LOVING this shawl. I've been trying to live post my daily progress via Instagram which has been a fun exercise in watching it grow:
At this point I'm almost through the second lace repeat. Which I believe is about halfway through. I have a pretty strong chance of getting a gold!
|I love this picture, and this moment, so, so much.|
