Olympic Fever


No one has asked me to answer any question about the Olympics but I feel I have watched so much of the televised Olympic Winter Games that I could easily give some very accurate and good ones.  I went to bed last night with a terrific headache and knew that I had Olympic overload for sure. I can't help it.  I get sucked in on it.  When I am straightening up my house in the morning I think, "I wonder if the Olympics are on!"  (P-l-e-a-s-e, what a question! Of course, someone is luging or skating at all hours of the day and night!)  So I turn it on and try to continue doing my work.  Somehow, I manage to turn it off hours later when I realize there is no food in the house.  I leave for the grocery store.  Later, that same thing happens when I have returned from necessary errands and before I know it, I have been sucked in and learned more than I ever needed to know about the lives of all the Russian, Norwegian and Chinese athletes, and their coaches and families I feel like I am participating in my own Olympic sport!  I have Olympic overload!  How about you?  How much Olympic TV time are you having?  Today I am limiting my Olympic viewing (unless, of course, the woman's Single Skating is on:)
I must restrain myself. 
I must restrain myself. 
I must restrain myself!

In years past I have only been interested in figure skating and snowboarding. THIS year, maybe it's that I am getting older, I am loving pretty much all of the sports! Last night we watched the men's skating, women's snowboard cross, and some of the women's luge. I am stoked tonight for snowboarding half pipe!!

I do watch, but only when I'm not doing something else. I don't get as caught up in it as I used to.

Past years I have watched every televised minute.
This year because of the digital conversion, and the fact that our digital conversion box is not very powerful I have not watched any (sob!) of the Olympics. We don't get the channel that is is broadcast on.

We have always been HUGE Fans of the Olympics. I was cheering out of my seat last night for Evan! Lindsay Vonn just took the Gold! Yes we do enjoy the Olypics. I remember when we had one of our exchange girls living with us from Japan, that year we cheered for both nations! I love that we can all come together, unified as a world.
SHHH ...I dvred the thing!
