Ok, is it just me, or is everyone else yelling at their TVs? Last night had to be the best race EVER! Ryan and I were on the edge of our seats the whole time...and jumped off the couch when Lezak touched the wall first. HELLO! I know I'm no swimmer, so I can only imagine how pumped people who really follow swimming outside the Olympics were. There are only a few sports I really like to follow in the Olympics --swimming, volleyball, gymnastics, and short distance running. They're so fast paced and I love watching records get shattered.
I think I've cried at least a dozen times since the games started. Ever since living in Germany and since Ryan was in Iraq, I can never hear the national anthem without crying. It stirs a huge emotion of pride in my heart and I just can't hold it in. I love the Olympics because these men and women athletes are inspiring. As representatives of the US, they make me so proud to watch them. I might otherwise be really embarrassed to yell at the TV, but it is so fun to get in to the races and competition. So, til they end-
USA! USA! USA!!
