Let the Games Begin!
I LOVE the Olympics! I look forward to them every two years. I love the pageantry of the Opening Ceremony, the stories of the athletes, and sitting on pins and needles to see how the Americans fare in their various events. During the Olympics, I do my best not to see any results until the footage airs each night - no spoilers please! And I literally watch every night. It's hard to say whether I prefer the winter or summer games, but I think my favorite is winter. All the skiing, skating, luge, and snowboarding events just amaze me. Perhaps it's because as a child I lived just a couple of hours from Lake Placid (which held the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics), and learned to ski and love all things winter there. That's where I first saw ski-jumping, and I have always wanted to try that!
So tonight, Brodie and I will be snuggled on the couch, trying to stay warm and watching the Opening Ceremonies in Sochi, Russia and cheering on Team USA. Let the Games Begin!
