Don't You Just Love the Olympics?

I am going through serious Olympic withdrawal tonight.  What am I going to do with my evenings?  My Saturdays?  There is something so compelling about watching athletes who, for the most part, have spent the last four years training and preparing for this one moment in time.  Heck, I can't even seem to focus on something for four hours at a time!  My favorite events to watch were short track speed skating and downhill skiing - sports where anything can happen.  I have to say, I can see why Julia Mancuso is tired of Lindsey Vonn - what an attention hog.   Events they could stand to drop: curling and women's hockey.  After all, curling is really a game, not a sport.  I'm still trying to figure out when they should play "the guard" vs. "the peel"... And, the women's hockey was a snoozer for the most part with all of the lopsided scores. 

I'm already looking forward to the next summer games in 2012.  Swimming, gymnastics, and biking - oh my!
