Today I’m feeling blue. I’ve got Post-Olympicitis. My symptoms are restlessness, sadness, heavy sighing, fatigue, and lack of motivation to carry out normal activities.
Singing “The Sun’ll Come Out Tomorrow” isn’t helping. But thankfully there are wonderful folks at BBC, including Newsday presenter Julian Keane who was incredibly thoughtful to share a video with me via Twitter. It not only reminds us of the phenomenal job done by British athletes, but a reminder to also keep looking forward. Yes, ever forward!
Before I share the video, I want to take a moment to extend my gratitude to BBC for the support and kindness it showed this blog over the past two weeks. I write this blog because I love the Olympics, and because it’s a means for sharing my passion with others. Never in my wildest dreams did I think someone would want to hear my thoughts via mainstream media, much less BBC, the most highly regarded agency in broadcasting! The producers and presenters for both BBC Newsday and BBC World Have Your Say couldn’t have been nicer or more gracious; and for little ole me who was shaking with nerves about being on live radio, their gestures were more appreciated than they’ll ever know.
Now, enjoy this video which features some of Great Britain’s Olympians lip-syncing to Queen’s “Don’t Stop Me Now.”
Faster, Higher, Stronger.
