For some unknown reason, I've never really had any interest in the Olympics. Of course in 1996 when they were held in Atlanta, we went to several events and I'm sure I loved it. I still have a hat covered in Olympic pins to prove it. But since then, I haven't really watched any of it....until this year. Now I'm kicking myself for not getting into it sooner! I had no idea what I was missing. Now I'm watching any event I can find, and I just can't get enough of a few specific athletes. Phelps, Franklin, Douglas, I'm lookin' at you!
Gymnastics and swimming are probably my favorite events, although I do love tennis and beach volleyball, too. I was a hot mess when the girls won gymnastics. Don't tell me I was the only one crying?! Plus, I am super proud to watch a fellow Georgia Bulldog, Allison Schmitt!
We've also discussed what event we would do. Doug would play soccer or badminton, while I would play tennis or swim. And because we are animal-obsessed weirdos, we've even decided what olympic sport the pets would play. (If you're curious, Maisy would do gymnastics, Pep would do trampoline (I had no idea this was an event until last night!), and Diego would rock the track :)
Are you obsessed with the Olympics? What's your favorite event?
