Confessions of a Fauf

Keep Those Inhalers Ready

Time for another blog. What is Fauf's Confession this week? Well, let me just start by confessing that the olympics are now upon us and I believe our TV-watching life will be affected for quite some time. I was reading a schedule of the olympics. It's kinda ridiculous. Table Tennis (which is a proper noun for ping-pong) lasts TWELVE hours (5am to 5pm)! Can you imagine 12 hours of ping-pong? I don't recall the muscular Greeks training for 4 years to compete on a ping-pong table on Mount Olympia! (but the mental image that comes to mind is really funny...go ahead and try it!) Anyways, there are plenty of other sporting events to indulge in. But honestly, I'll just be waiting for the athletes to go into fits of asthma attacks due to the poor air quality. And if that's the case, then I'll bet the only athletes able to carry on for the gold will be those "Table Tennis" aka ping-pong players because they'll be indoors! I guess I better stop joshing them because they may be the only sporting event that will be airing when everything else is cancelled due to athletes being put on oxygen tanks. All in all, I am very excited about the Olympics...probably more so about the opening ceremonies. So here's to those moments when the world unites over displays of great courage, strength, and stamina at the track, pool, and yes, ping-pong tables.
