I love.Love.LOVE Olympics!!! Especially the winter Olympics! I sing the theme song and even have the NBC Olympic app on my phone!! Ever since I was a little girl, I loved watching many of the events...especially the figure skating! I remember watching Kristi Yamaguchi, Nancy Kerrigan, Grinkov and Gordeeva, Michelle Kwan, and so many more. I wanted to ice skate like them (but was quickly reminded after a trip to the ice rink that I did NOT have the talent)! Justin is quite the sport and has humored me for the last few weeks--he's not the biggest winter games fan (he likes the summer games), but is watching them faithfully with me!
This year I've enjoyed cheering on Apollo Ono, Lindsey Vonn, Julia Mancuso, and am looking forward to my ice skaters tomorrow night!! It freaks me out watching the aerial skiers and the alpine skiers. Those slalom courses, super G, etc are SO steep!! I cannot even imagine doing that!
And the medal count??!! As of Wednesday night...28 medals!! WOW!!
Too bad the bedrest I'm about to be on (after our FET next week) didn't come earlier! I could have watched the Olympics all day long! =)
Do you like watching the Olympics? What is your favorite event?
