Let’s Hear It For My Man!
I have a huge crush on a younger man and his name is Apolo Anton Ohno. For those of you who haven't been following the Olympics, Apolo is a short track skater and last night he so made up for what had been, in my opinion (and in the opinion of many other non-Germanic people), a ho-hum Winter Olympic season. He also made up for speed skater,Chad Hedrick and skier, Bode Miller who reinforced some of the worst American stereotypes out there; not because they didn’t win golds but because of the way they handled it. Hedrick’s comment that his “heart's bigger than anyone else's.” was beyond obnoxious, particularly since that was his response to a question about how he managed to come in second. Miller couldn’t even admit that he was unhappy about his failures. According to him the Olympic experience is about partying. On the other hand, Apolo (I’m going to use his first name because it’s pronounced like that of a Roman God and I think that’s appropriate) just comes across as the sweetest guy in the world. The fact that he was just as excited about helping his team win an unexpected bronze in the 5,000 relay as he was about winning a gold for himself in the 500 meters race says it all. Plus he’s insanely cute!
So congratulations Apolo! You won three metals this Olympics along with one gold, you met the incredibly high goal you had set for yourself of skating a perfect race, you saved face for the Americans and you totally rocked my world!
