The Road to London: Olympics 2012

Are you guys as excited about the Olympics as I am?! I am a huge Olympics fan and I’m so looking forward to watching the Opening Ceremony on TV tonight. My friend is having a little Olympics kick-off gathering at her place, so I’ll be heading there later today.  I love the spirit of the games- the idea of bringing countries from all over the world together for a shared love of sports.

Some of my family is currently in London (jealous!) although they don’t have tickets to any events. Still, I imagine that London is all abuzz with excitement about the Olympics and I wish I could be there to experience it!

Tell me: Will you be watching the Olympics? If so, what are you favorite sports to watch?

  2. Gymnastics!!!! As an ex gymnast I appreciate the sport and the hard work and dedication it takes. I had a dream of being in the Olympics and being the next Dominique Dawes, but I had another calling…
