Talking with some friends this week about this, it is amazing how "into" these different sports we can get during the Olympics. Some of these sports (gymnastics, diving, etc.) we would never watch normally, but find ourselves watching every night this week. We've especially been enjoying watching swimming, gymnastics, sand volleyball, ping pong, and of course basketball. Here's hoping that Team USA can turn things around and play well. The second half vs. Australia looked a little better. Track and Field starts this weekend I think, that's always entertaining too. I don't know if it is the country pride, or the fact that it is every four years, or that we just get to see sports that aren't normally televised...but so much of it seems so neat to watch during the Games. Plus, for the most part from what we have seen, there has been a nice comraderie between countries as well...gracious winners/losers for the most part, which is nice to see too.
