I love the Olympics. Winter and summer, wherever they are, we watch as much as we can throughout the whole time. I'm not a sports fan. I go into another room when hubby is watching any sport - golf, basketball, hockey, football. But come the Olympics, we watch everything we can, together, even sports I don't like. My favorites are gymnastics, swimming, equestrian...etc. It's schmaltzy, but I love the opening and closing ceremonies, the march of the athletes. All the hopeful young people from every country, marching to honor their homelands and celebrate their accomplishments, win or not. I hate some TV reporting when they get super gooey schmaltzy, and when they put waaaayyy too much emphasis on gold instead of the heart of the competitors. But I love the stories of the people who spend their lives preparing for the competition. Love the pageantry.
So anyone else out there with me on this?
Gonna close down the 'puter now and get out my knitting, and prepare to be awed by the show!
