The Olympics and Memories

I love the Olympics. Did you know the 2014 Winter Olympics will be happening in February? If not, I suggest that you brush up on your winter sports and check the event schedule.

I love the Olympics for many reasons, but the biggest reason is the memories. When I think "Olympics," these memories come to mind:
  1. The Magnificent Seven win team gold in gymnastics at the 1996 Summer Olympics. I have never forgotten their exhibition performance.
  2. The whole Nancy Kerrigan/Tanya Harding situation:
  3. The Fierce Five win team gold in the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.
  4. The anthem. So exciting.
  5. Canada beats the U.S. in men's hockey at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. In a room full of shouting Canadian hockey fans (including my husband), I kept my mouth shut.
