The Olympics are pretty much the mother of all sporting events. Even though they claim to bring countries together, what I like best is that they bring Canada together. #CANADAPRIDE
During the Olympics we aren’t Jets vs. Leafs, Canucks vs…. lol jk I know nothing about hockey – the point is that during the Olympics Canada rulez even more than usual. Plus, even people like me who aren’t exactly “sports fans” by nature can totally participate. Here are some awesome things about the Olympics aside from the physical activity part.

Do you like to travel? Um, everyone likes to travel. Next time you find yourself single in any of the following places, these are your potential Olympian boyfriends (from top left to top right: Joel Fearon – England, Brad Spence – Canada, Ludvig Fjällström – Sweden, Simon Fourcade – France, Bobby Brown – USA).
Vancouver 2010 Nostalgia
Remember when the Olympics came to Vancouver and all of a sudden Canadians became super patriotic? I’m all for Canadians being proud to be Canadian and I think Brian Williams’ closing remarks in this video pretty much some up the games.
Olympic Spirit Nail Art

Holidays, snow days, awards shows, I love having nails that creepily match what is going on in the world. Of course, this means I fully support Olympic spirit nail art, whether it’s the iconic rings or your country flag.
Skaters with Enviable Flexibility & Glittery Outfits
If you’re not a typical sports fan, figure skating is the best way to get into watching the Olympics. You will die over the sparkly dresses and start wearing more glitter, you will cry while the skaters’ stories are shown before they compete, and you will feel incredibly inflexible when you watch them perform #teamtessaandscottforever.
The Hudson Bay Olympic Collection
Now you, yes you, can wear matching apparel to your favourite Canadian athletes. Oh, wait, you don’t like sports. Whatever guys, we were made for this.
Shoshi Games 2014
Since we love Shoshanna (A.K.A. Zosia Mamet), we love whoever created this Shoshi Games Tumblr. Basically, someone with photoshop skills has placed the odd facial expressions of HBO Girls’ Shoshanna in every sport of the winter olympics. Please make one of these with Phil Dunphy, thanks.
