Wow! Where does the time go? I remember for the 2010 Olympics, I was sitting on my hotel bed in Fort Lauderdale watching something called curling. At first glance I thought to myself, “What the hell is this? This has to be the dumbest thing I have ever seen.” Well, after 10 minutes of watching, I was at the edge of the bed totally zoned into this awesome game.
Now 4 years have past and we are all preparing for the start of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. To be quite honest with you all, I almost forgot about the Olympics until I saw a commercial about Shaun White taking part in the Slope Style event for the first time. That should be very exciting considering he’s the Michael Jordan of Snowboarding. Does this guy have a limit? Every year he goes bigger than he did in previous years. Anyway, I’m super excited to see this guy fly.
I’m also really excited to see the impact the 2014 Winter Olympics has on social media. Just think about this for a minute. In 2010, Instagram was in its’ beginning stages, memes weren’t really that big, and vine was just an idea. In 2014 we are exposed to way more social media platforms which allow us to be creative in so many different ways. I will be staying busy search hashtags throughout this years Olympics to see what kind of shenanigans people are getting themselves into.
Enjoy the games everyone!
