Opening Ceremonies - Cat-A-Lympics

Bob: Well Jim we're back from the imagination of Meg S Hart!

Jim: That's right Bob. It's sure great to be back in time for the opening ceremonies of Cat-A-Lympics.

Bob: Boy it's good to be back Jim! I feel like we need to explain the games to our new readers.

Jim: I agree Bob.  First the name Cat-A-Lympics is a bit of a misnomer, as any species can play.

Bob: What Jim? Any species? Humans? Dogs and Cats competing together? It's a world gone mad.

Jim: Yes Bob, it's a unique feature of these games, but you know cats are fierce competitors and they welcome all comers. Another difference in these games is that any participant takes away gold. Anyone is welcome to make up an event on the fly and post it at their blogs too.

Bob: Can you tell us the rules on that Jim?

Jim: No Bob, because there are no rules! That's right! No Rules! Cats would have it no other way Bob. If you take napping seriously enough to call it a sport - it can be an event. Play on equipment or play on words - it's all open.

Bob: You mean they can even use old posts and just slap a Cat-A-Lympic spin on the thing and that counts?

Jim: Yes Bob! Like I said no rules! Just a celebration of the Cathlete. In fact I understand we'll even be showing previous events with Angel Fin.

Bob: Angel Fin! Wow Jim! Let the games begin with the display of the circles...

Jim: Okay who took the other one?

Quill: This is unprofessional! And those are my toys!

Greyson: What? I have no idea where it went...

Jim: All right - let's get to the passing of the torch...

Bob: I understand the flame traveled all the way across the kitchen...

Jim: And now the lighting of the Cat-A-Lympic caldron.

Bob: Wow... it's really moving. I believe it's a three wick.

Jim: ::Sniffs:: Is that cinnamon?

Bob: "Baking Spice" Jim. I think that brings us to the end of tonight's ceremonies. Please join us for the next post in these exciting games.
