the first day of the Olympics!
I can't wait.
This seems strange and out of character for me, I know. I mean, I am not that into watching sports and by that I mean I am not AT ALL into watching sports... and we all know I can barely play any. And, also, I am not even slightly competitive. But still I HEART HEART HEART the Olympics!
In 1984, we lived on Montana and 25th in Santa Monica. My dad stood on the corner with all 5 of us as we watched the torch being run down the street. That's when my love of the Olympics began. I wish I could find the photo, I am this tiny thing with tube socks to my mid-thighs and the shortest mustard colored shorts ever!
I can watch just about all the sports (both summer and winter)... Is it possible to TiVo the Olympics for all 15 days staight? Since, I doubt that's possible I guess I'll have to forgo handball?!? Are you kidding... really is handball a sport? I guess I can do without softball too (sorry Diz) and also I can do without Judo (whatever that is), taekwondo, boxing, and wrestling! Just as long as I can still watch: archery, badminton(seriously, it's kind of funny), beach volleyball (Dax Holdren was my assistant volleyball coach at San Marcos high school when I played my Sophmore year - no joke!), basketball, kayaking (why not?), cycling, diving (a fav) , equestrian (it's stressful to watch though), fencing, gymnastics (another one of my favs), pentahlon, rowing, sailing, shooting, soccer (yes please! Soccer players have the best legs and we all know I have that crush on David Beckam in that oh-no-please-don't-speak kind of way), swimming (my VERY favorite), table tennis (that one is for you dad), regular tennis, track & field, triathlon, water polo, and even weightlifting (seriously! Deplorable confession #1198, I kind of LOVE the world's strongest man competitions too... shhhhh... I don't want to hear it... I SO know that's weird!)
So, if you don't see me in the next 15 days... I am at home watching the Olympics!
