My Olympic Weekend Crush

Well, I hope you’ve been enjoying the Olympics. You know I have. In honor of its final weekend, please enjoy these literal golden girls. Here are all the female gold medal winners from the United States (with much respect and congratulations, of course, to all the other women from other countries who took gold as well).

Jamie Anderson, Slopestyle Gold

Chloe Kim, Snowboard Halfpipe Gold

Mikaela Shiffrin, Giant Slalom Skiing Gold

Kikkan Randall & Jessica Diggins, Cross Country Skiing Team Sprint Gold

U.S. Women’s Hockey Team Gold

Also, come on, 20-year-old rookie goalie Maddie Rooney (left) is totally Ellen Page’s jock little sister, right?

And, because it’s my blog and I can post what I want, here is a little bonus SGALGG action from the PyeongChang Games.

Maren Lundby & Silje Opseth, Norway, ski jumping

Laura Deas & Lizzy Yarnold, Great Britain, skeleton

Kaori Iwabuchi & Sara Takanashi, Japan, ski jumping

Stina Nilsson & Hanna Falk, Sweden, cross-country skiing

Lindsey Vonn & Laurenne Ross, US, downhill skiing

And, because you knew this was coming, here is some choice SGALGG from the U.S. Women’s Hockey Team gold medal celebration.

Go ladies, go world, and happy weekend, all.

Did anyone watch the curling match last night ? Amazing athleticism from our athletes. I think the US is gaining steam and will start piling up medals.

When you have time, check out "everything sucks" - totally captures what it is like to be thinking you might be a queer girl in high school in the 90s. It's amazing. Plus, Tori Amos music.
