If a sport was played without any fans present, would anyone care? Probably not. Because while the players might seem as though they’re thoroughly engrossed in their games, they rely on fans to provide energy, noise and motivation. Every sports team has a loyal fan base that supports and cheers players on—even when things are going badly. The fans are why players shine. Today we’re celebrating the sports signage created and displayed by some of the best fans in the world. (more…)
The 2012 London Summer Olympic Games came to a close last night with a boisterous, although slightly weird, tribute to British music, fashion and of course the unforgettable performances from the last 2 weeks. The highlights of the ceremony were definitely the athletes’ entrance into Olympic Stadium and the Ugandan marathon runner receiving his gold medal. Note to self: if you want to win a gold medal, win the marathon. You become instantly famous because they give you the medal at the closing ceremonies, which is being watched by a billion people. Not a bad gig if you can last 26.2 miles and not die.
The 2012 London Olympic Summer Games are coming to a close this weekend. They have been packed with highlights, a couple low lights, and some great memories. At Signs.com, we were inspired but quickly realized we would never make it to the Olympics. And neither will you if you exhibit one of these signs!
It might not be fashionable, but even Serena Williams sweats on the court. Olympics events require physical exertion (no, getting up from the couch and schlepping to the refrigerator to get another beer doesn’t count).
During the Olympic Games, even couch potatoes dream of athletic glory. And those athletes make it all look so easy that some of us might even start to believe that we’d have a chance at Gold. Let’s be honest . . . for 99.9% of the American population, that’s a pipe dream. But you might have some fun practicing some of these Summer Olympic Sports in your own backyard, even if your aspirations of Olympic fame are not meant to become reality.
Ah the Olympics. An international event that stirs our collective national pride every four years. I for one am a fan of the Olympics, not just because I love to root for the U.S.A but because I genuinely enjoy some of the events and the storylines. Also, it is nice to see that Bob Costas still has a job and still looks the same as he did 25 years ago . . . I want to know his secret to the fountain of youth.
