As you may know, every Friday, I confess five things I’ve done the previous week that some might find offensive, embarrassing, or awkward, but that I fully embrace and encourage you to do the same. This week is a collaboration of my thoughts/observations on the Olympics and I’m curious to know if I’m the only person out there who feels this way. Let me know with a Facebook post (have you liked W+P yet, by the way?), tweet, or comment below. Presenting…

5 things that are totally acceptable to think about the 2012 Summer Olympics:

1. You can’t fathom how the head honchos picked a font to splash all over EVERYTHING that looks like Greek restaurant signage. And more importantly, why is NO ONE IS TALKING ABOUT THIS?

2. You’re still in disbelief that Ralph Lauren designed our weird lovely, patriotic USA outfits, then had them made in CHINA. I mean, did he think he was going to pull the wool over our eyes (literally)?

I think it’s safe to say they’ll be calling Tommy Hilfiger in 2016.

3. You wonder How. The. F*ck. Gymnasts. Do. That.

4. You add the USA women’s beach volleyball team into your “Top 5.” Hello, girl crush(es).

(New rule: Teams count as one person, so you only have to replace one of your dream men).

5. You wonder if after Ryan Lochte took second to Michael Phelps, he comforted himself with the fact that no matter how badass Phelps is at swimming, he’ll always be a butter face.

Also this:

God bless the USA.
