The Summer 2012 Olympics have rendered me a virtual shut-in and I've caught a bad case of Olympic fever! Until August 12, the London games have me glued to my sofa watching the world’s most talented athletes compete for gold. This year's Summer games have been chock-full of memorable and emotionally charged moments, including, of course, Michael Phelps’ widely talked about upset in the 200 meter butterfly made sweeter by his victory along with his teammates in the 800 meter freestyle relay. He is now the most decorated Olympian in history with 22 medals in total!
Regardless of what you're tuning in to watch or what your favorite 2012 Olympic events may be, why not get into the spirit of the games with these Olympic themed items? Olympic memorabilia is wildly collectible and, what's more, these items are chic enough to wear long after the games are over.

At this point, you'd have to be living under a rock if you haven't heard of Tom Daley, the British Olympic diver who may have narrowly missed medaling but steamed up the 2012 games with his post-dive shower (spawning an internet wildfire). Tom and his fellow teammates were recently photographed wearing more than their speedo (well, not much more).
Apparently, nothing comes between the British diving team and their Calvins. So get your own pair!
