Tonight the Olympic games officially kick off in London with the Opening Ceremony! Will you be watching? (I'll be up at the Pierogi Fest!) I LOVE the Olympics and cannot wait to watch swimming and gymnastics this year!
I can remember my first love of the Olympics was the Tanya Harding/Nancy Kerrigan battle. (literally) I wanted to be an Olympic skater so badly after the 94 games! Too bad skating was a little too expensive for my dad!
In '96 it was Atlanta. We got a chance to design an Olympic logo and name the mascot for the games in my Girl Scouts troop and I thought it was the coolest! After '96 my focus shifted to being a gymnast! (Too bad I was slightly over the age and weight of most athletes!)
What will London 2012 bring? I cannot wait to find out! Maybe I could be a table tennis star? No a beach volleyball player?... Or maybe a....?
