Hopkins is basically the heart of the Olympics…Ok, not really. But Imma do my best to prove it true.
First piece of evidence? MICHAEL PHELPS. Sure, Michael Phelps doesn’t exactly go to Hopkins, but he does train in Baltimore. I remember freshman year there was even some type of swimming fundraiser in Baltimore that you could sign up for and swim with Michael Phelps. In the same pool. How insane is that?!?!?!?!?!? I’ve even heard of a couple Hopkins students seeing him when they went out to restaurants and different places in the Inner Harbor. That, however, is extremely rare, seeing as despite all my wishing, no Michael Phelps-looking person has ever been anywhere that I’ve seen.
Another piece of evidence? Carmelo Anthony. I don’t know anything about him, really. But apparently he is really big in basketball. And he’s from Baltimore. So he basically represents Hopkins. Oh snap. (I definitely just googled that since my sports information is limited to swimming, diving, and gymnastics. Don’t hate.)
You need more? Baltimore is basically spewing American colors all over the place. Baltimore is known for its seafood, specifically, it’s crab. Crabs are RED. And you know where crabs come from? The water. Which is BLUE. And in winter, it has snowed so much that classes have been cancelled a couple of times. And-you guessed it! Snow is white. What a patriotic city! (Yes, I know that was extremely lame. Oh well. Deal with it.)
Really, this entire blog is sort of a stretch. It is really just my way of saying I’m super excited for the Olympics, just like the rest of Baltimore and the entire nation, but a little bit more because of Michael Phelps (no offense, Carmelo. I just don’t know much about basketball).
