WO: Weekly Obsessions

Clearly, I can’t get enough of the 2012 London Olympics. My sleep sched is totally off, I’m dreaming of Big Ben and I’m practicing pole vaulting like there’s no tomorrow. For the first time ever, I had a hard time stopping at four obsessions …

  1. An All-American Final: Kerry Walsh Jennings and Misty May-Treanor face off in their final match together against Jen Kessy and April Ross in tonight’s Women’s Beach Volleyball final. Insert USA! chants here.
  2. Google: Everyone loves the doodles our favorite search engine brings, but they’ve really stepped it up for the games. Between steeplechase yesterday and basketball today, I am beat.
  3. Kirani James: Winning your country’s first Olympic medal is admirable enough. But even greater than that is James’s sportsmanship — not a dry eye in the house following his race with paraplegic runner Oscar Pistorious.
  4.  “Home” by Phillip Phillips: Risking spoiler alerts and all, I managed to track down the song from NBC’s gymnastics promos. Terrible name for the kid? Sure. But hot damn, that tune is catchy.


Just know you’re not alone, ‘cause I’m going to make this place your home.
