The 2008 Summer Beijing Olympic opening ceremony was fantastic! We were really blown away with the pyrotechnics and the super huge LED screen they used. We have to admit a few parts were getting a little boring but once those fireworks starting going off, boy were we glued to the TV.
In honor of the Olympic games, we have a little bet going on on which country will medal the most. We both haven’t determined which country we will choose but we will by Sunday night. H has her mind currently set on China since they are the host country and have so many athletes. I am probably going to pick USA. We both think it’s going to be neck and neck till the end of the games. We’re going to be also doing a total gold Medals won per country side bet, a total non-gold medals bet, and finally, a total medals bet for a country that has less than 50 participants. Each bet is worth 1 weeks worth of dish cleaning. The potential big loser may have to wash the dishes for a whole month straight! If we manage to both win 2 out of 4 bets, then it’ll be a wash and no one has to wash anything.
We’re also playing the idea of having a little competition at home creating our own Olympic events. Event 1 will be a game of texas-hold em’ poker. Event 2 will be a game of Speed. Event 3 will be a game a Chess. And finally, Event 4 will be a game of Uno. These games contribute to who’s the true Olympic Champion. H has been prepping for the past few days and has a secret weapon. She calls it the Raspberry attack. Check out what she’s talking about:
The intensity!!! Game on!!
