Top 10 Reasons The Olympics Needs The Spice Girls - The Frisky

Anyone who is anyone that came of age during the 1990's certainly has fond memories of their musical love affair with the Spice Girls. Thanks to the Spice Girls I could finally be an average height (while walking around in platform sneakers/flip flops/stripper shoes) and conveniently had some leftover Union Jacks when it came time for 2011's Royal Wedding.

If the Spice Girls reunited (again) for the 2012 London Olympics I could die happy and go to spandex heaven.

Top 10 Reasons The Olympics Needs The Spice Girls - The Frisky

Gymnastics Olympic Trials to be held in San Jose

Gymnastics Olympic Trials to be held in San Jose

What you may or may not know about Ode to Olympic Spandex is that we are based in San Francisco. What you also may or may not realize is that gymnastics is the holy spandex grail of the summer Olympics. We will DEFINITELY be hitting this event up (hopefully in person rather than virtually) and finding a way to ask those most important questions to the potential future Olympic athletes: Who are you wearing, and how did you choose this leotard/feast of spandex glory for today's event?

Any connections to press passes appreciated- leave a comment below.

Happy New Year!

Only 207 days until London 2012!!!


If this DAZZLING fireworks display is any sign of what is to come for the Games of the XXX Olympiad, I would say that things are on the right track!!!  See you soon, Summer Olympics (using the word "see" lightly to imply "though my television"...)!!!!
