Olympic Mania

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?

Oh. My. Word. I'm obsessed! I am literally glued to the tv. It's torture going to work because I know I'm missing some events!
Plus yay for Schmitt! I think I read that she's the first swimmer from UGA to win an individual gold. So cool.

we love the Olympics at our house...and so does little almost 8 month old Elyse! We've had many conversations about what olympic sport she will compete in during the 2028 Summer Games @ the riped old age of 16! ha!

girl i feel like I wrote this post....obsessed with the same athletes and the same sports. AND I never cared for the olympics either except for Atlanta Gymnastics -Magnificent 7 baby! Twins!! I love it...I would do track and field because, moving in a forward motion is pretty much all I'm good at ;)

Any and all track and field events. I'm constantly watching. LOVE the Olympics :)

I totally cried, too! No shame, haha!

Clearly, I agree with all of this. My blog has been a swimmer creepfest for the last two weeks, but I REALLY love gymnastics, too. I like track and field, but I'm pretty bummed that my favorite events are done.

...and I have been sobbing on and off since the Olympics began. I'm way too fragile for this much emotion.

My husband and I have totally discussed what sport our dog would play if she was in the Olympics!! How funny!! I think she would be a gymnast, for sure.
