A stupid little poem I wrote about my favorite Olympic athlete, Austria's Benni Raich (I'm not Austrian, by the way) :smiles: I wasn't at these Olympics, nor have I ever been to one, but I love them and I think they're great!
I wave my red and white flag proudly
As I see him awaiting the bell.
He doesn't seem nervous,
Well, as far as I could tell.
He's definitely my favorite,
He brings pride to my nation,
He's on the front page of the paper
And on every news station.
He speeds down the hill
Going through every gate.
He's going to win the gold
For sure at this high-speed rate.
He reaches the bottom
And is greeted by his team.
They hold him up on their shoulders
As the fans start to scream.
He smiles widely
And throws his hands in the air
He takes off his hat
And runs his hand through his hair.
He deserved to win;
He was the favorite of many
After seeing this sweet and talented guy
How can you not love Benni?
