Well, ladies and gentlemen, the 2012 Olympic Games are officially over today — WAH! — so now it’s time for us to re-evaluate our life choices and question why our parents didn’t force us to stay in gymnastics class and swimming lessons when we were little. (C’mon, Mom. We want a gold medal!) Anyway, to celebrate this year’s historic events (thank you, Michael Phelps) we will be watching tonight’s closing ceremonies along with 98 percent of the world to, once again, dream of being a part of that magic. Although we were completely enthralled by the talent, the heartbreak and, of course, the hotties of this year’s games, we can’t help but think, ‘What if…?’ So we came up with a list of the top 5 things that (most likely) would’ve made the 2012 Olympics better — and no, we didn’t include any medal-result changes. We’re not sore losers here at Teen, duh. Check ‘em out and let us know if you agree!
C’mon, the universe was pretty much screaming for this to happen. Look at those eyes!
The Olympics can be pretty tense, but we guarantee that everyone would be laughing — even the athletes! And you thought you looked bad in that pic your friend posted on Instagram? Psh.
We know that the ‘bolting’ trend is kinda picking up, but we would’ve thought that after over two weeks of competition, we’d see more people bolting up a storm!
We know that Queen Elizabeth (or at least a body double) jumped out of a helicopter and all, but you’d think that she’d be able to at least crack a smile during the opening ceremonies. The Olympics are kinnnnda a big deal.
