Five-Ring Circus: Selfie Taking an Official Olympic Sport

Many years ago, the hardworking staff was a regular competitor in the annual Carroll Family Olympics™ held at the Big House in Windsor, CT.

Trademark moments:

The Nancy Carroll 30-Second Asthma Timeout®.

The Jack Carroll 30-Minute Cocktail Timeout©.

The Jimmy Carroll 30-Hour Broken Arm Timeout (pat. pending).

It all fell apart, of course, when Terence Carroll introduced the Russian Novel Writing Competition, which led Bobby Carroll, Diane Carroll, and Jackie’s Agnes to jump in the Carroll Family Swimming Pool.

Good times.

So we were greatly heartened when we stumbled across this ad addressed to International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach in yesterday’s New York Times.

Yeah – that smart.

Put the “pic” back in Olympic, eh?
