Two weeks ago I wasn't going to watch the Olympics much, but I got sucked into it. First because I love ice skating so as I waited for the broadcast on the figure skating I started getting into the other sports--except curling. I could never understand that sport. The United States had some ups and downs, but overall there were some great moments for the U. S. but also other countries. I loved watching the female figure skater from Korea perform--beautiful and breathtaking. Or the female Canadian figure skater who dedicated her performance to her mother who had just died. What a moving story. Another sport I really enjoyed was the snowboarding. Some of the tricks that were done were fantastic. I don't know how the snowboarders would ever work up to some of them. They looked like they were defying gravity. We won some medals in sports we hadn't gotten a medal in years. What a great feeling for the US athletes for the four man bobsled yesterday. Congratulations to everyone who participated even if they didn't win a medal. The fact they you were there was something most of us couldn't do. And although the United States men's hockey players lost to Canada's, they fought a great battle. What a game!!
Did you watch any of the Olympics? What was your favorite moment? Favorite sport?
