I just love the Olympics. I'm not sure why, I just do. Maybe because it's the only time I really get a chance to watch events like platform diving and rhythmic gymnastics. The winter Olympics are great too because, well, curling is an Olympic sport and who DOESN'T like watching curling? I guess it's just nice to watch sports that aren't football or basketball.
Another reason to love the Olympics: last night we went to watch my friend's husband's band play at a bar downtown. When else but during the Olympics will you see a bunch of guys around the TV at a bar excited about a swimming race? They were going nuts. It cracked me up.
I'm pleasantly surprised at how many of the top men's tennis players are playing in Beijing. Usually most snub the Olympics. I just hope, like I usually do, that Federer doesn't win.
