Many people will win medals during these Olympic games, but there will really only be one true winner.
Boomer Phelps and his tiny headphones.
There have been plenty of shots of them during the past few days, but I first saw him wearing these during the Olympic trials and fell in love with them because they’re 1) adorable and 2) hilarious. I get why they’re needed. Obviously it’s important to protect babies’ ears, but these things are enormous on their wee little heads. I’m not even someone who loses it over babies, but I always freak out over baby-sized anything.
Boomer looks a bit freaked out himself. He’s only a few months old, so there is no way for him to know that entire stadiums full of adults screaming their heads off is something that happens sometimes.
Boomer Phelps is not happy that his peaceful nap has been ruined.
Boomer Phelps really does not understand what all the fuss is about.
Boomer Phelps has been in the water many times himself.
And there was none of this shrill nonsense going on then.
Boomer Phelps wants to know if he can get like five minutes of peace please where he can stare uncomprehendingly at his Daddy winning lots of medals. I think we all have days where we feel like Boomer.
The only other Olympic story as fun as this so far is the fact that Leslie Jones’ Olympic tweets were so entertaining that she got invited to actually go to Rio by NBC. And she’s on her way.
