I LOVE the Olympics!!!
It has to be the one thing that unifies our country.
I don't care what side of the political spectrum you're on, these athletes have us cheering for one team.
I love to watch the stories about our athletes. The stories that NBC puts together telling you how they train, how they live and, in the case of Michael Phelps, how they eat. That guy is told to eat eight to ten thousand calories every day! What a luxury!
I love to watch swimming, volleyball (beach and indoor) and gymnastics. Oh and, diving. They might just be crazy.
I'm rubbing off on my babies.
Ella knows the Olympics are on just as soon as the first few bars of the theme music is played. It's so exciting to watch her get into it.
I am so stinkin' happy for all of our swimmers...not just Michael Phelps (even though he is a beast in the pool), but the whole team...including the women. The relay Sunday night...oh.my.goodness. Were you not on the edge of your seat!? I certainly was. And then they WON! (I slapped my own leg in celebration...which really hurt, doofus.) And GO! Natalie Couglin...that girl ripped through the water for the gold.
Last night, it was men's gymnastics. They lost two important members before the games. It could've been quite a blow to their confidence. They struggled a bit when they got to the floor exercise and the horse thing, but wow, they really had a great night. They weren't favored to win gold. Silver may have been obtainable, but the bronze is nothing to be ashamed of. Way to go, guys!!
I just love this stuff, folks.
And something that makes it even better...
It's the way to go, yes?
Enjoy the games!!
