like I needed another reason to watch the 2008 Beijing Olympics


OK, so little Yang Yang may be living my life dream, but who cares right? It's only the coolest thing ever. No big deal. I'm sure my life will be fulfilling in some other way that's just as cool. I'm over it.

From Daily Mail (emphasis mine):

"There is no mistaking the excitement on the four-year-old boy's face as he swims alongside a beluga whale many times his size.

And the whale seems to be enjoying the company, too.

The boy, named Yang Yang, will ride his playmate bareback to entertain the crowds between the sailing events at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing.

Yang Yang, who has been swimming since he was one, was chosen to swim with the five-year-old whale by staff at Qingdao Polar Ocean World in China's eastern Shandong Province."
