Okay. So.. I have a confession. Basically, I promised myself I wouldn’t post about the Olympic games because, well… everyone was going to be watching, writing, blogging, tweeting and posting on Facebook about them but I that has kind of already been nixed on my Twitter as I’ve posted a few things here and there. To change up from the norm, I thought I’d post a few of my Olympic highlights 2012 (complete with pictures!) – and then the question for you all: What have been your favorite moments and who are you rooting for?
- Day five: The U.S. women’s gymnastics team winning the gold – for the second time ONLY in Olympic history. This was awesome. I am so happy for them! They worked hard for this – this was truly a ‘golden’ moment for them.
and on a side note, if you only compete in one rotation for the team – what a way to earn that ‘golden’ moment. McKayla nailed this vault and commentators say it was perfect.Olympic Highlights 2012: Part 1 #FWarchives Click To Tweet
- Day six: Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh’s set. For the first time, I was holding my breath that they’d continue on! Four years ago, I was engrossed in their sets. 2012 is no different.
- Day six: This relay was the first event that prompted me to stay up for the entire run of the Olympics! I was on the edge of my seat before watching Alison bring it home for the win – keep it up, girl!
Really the entire swimming team is meeting and surpassing expectations. They are doing the USA proud. From Ryan Lochte to the young 17-year-old Missy Franklin, I am enjoying every meet – and the results. Seems this Olympic team can do more than just make a parody of a popular song. *wink* Despite the media trying their best to be dramatic and muddy these athletes, they are doing a fantastic job representing the states! Though ‘the games’ are not something America needs to survive, I’ll admit: I am enjoying them, and sporting the red, white and blue while watching everything unfold from the comfort of my living room. It doesn’t inspire the same sense of patriotism and pride as our military, seeing our flag so well represented is fabulous.
Team USA all the way!
