Summer Olympics!!

ahhh I love the summer Olympics. They've only been airing for a couple of days, and I'm already hooked alllll over again. There's nothing like watching athletes, who have trained to reach their very highest performance potential, swim/tumble/bump-set-spike for their country. It's pretty awesome.

Michael Phelps is a freak of nature. Seriously. This guy is unreal. AND...he somehow seems like a toootally and completely normal, not to mention cool, guy! He appears to have maintained his humility as well, which is pretty amazing considering that the entire country worships him. And then there's Dara Torres...holyyy.... A 41-year old ANCHORING the USA's Free Relay? Are you serious!? And she had the 2nd fastest split time of ANY OTHER SWIMMER...not just from the US, but from any other country. That's INSANE. and awesome. How can you NOT be completely enthralled by such feats?

I love the gymnastics...girls haven't started yet but I can't WAIT. I think swimming & gymnastics are prob my fav...although anytime Lebron James is on a basketball court, I'm all over it :) We have our DVR set to record any time the Olympics come on to ensure that we won't miss a thing :) YAY!

PS- Did anyone else see the Opening Ceremonies? Umm...I sooo wish I could have been there in person. China's technology is ridiculous.

I seriously want to wear red,white,blue every single day right now. I guess the Olympics totally bring out my cheesy side. What can I say? I heart the Olympics!

L-O-V-E the olympics! What a great idea on recording all the olympics while you are at work and such. I'm gonna do that tomorrow! :)
