Just Call Me Sybil




I watched this nail-biting, jaw-dropping, jump-up-and-down-inducing race and had three reactions.



1. As an American: Who doesn't just share in his raw, unfiltered joy? Who isn't just proud as hell to have this incredibly talented guy represent America?



2. As a female: Well, helloooooo there............. Nice suit. And such big, um, hands you have......


3. As a mom: (insert nasally, matronly voice) Oh for heaven's sake, young man! The whole world is watching! God himself, even! Let me just cinch these up for you. Goodness, what will the neighbors think?

I didn't used to have Reaction #3 to this kind of thing.
Just put me in the nursing home now.

HUM... Yum! I had my cougar eye on one of the nice lookin' neighbors to our north as well! I caught myself open mouthed drolling at the Canadian and then realizing, dang, I'm almost old enough to be his... ah, aunt. ;)

Oh... I had the same exact thought as #3. Then my other thought was "I bet he never eats Dairy Queen Blizzards. That would suck." Yeah... I need help.
