It’s that time again. The excitement, the adrenaline pumping and somehow oozing its way out of the TV and into your very own living room as you watch the athletes compete for the gold. Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve liked to watch the gymnastics, but the swimming and tennis have been at the top of our family’s list this year so far. I have two playing tennis so that makes sense. Not sure why the swimming has captured our attention though.
I really had no idea there were so many different sports played in the Summer Olympics. I guess I just haven’t been paying enough attention in the past. Both my girls are really interested this year and are keeping us up to date on all the latest news and medal wins. I must say, that cool pause and record button on the new remote are sure getting one heck of a work out. LOL
In case you’re curious to see if your favorite sport is one of them, here’s a list – Archery, badminton, basketball, beach volleyball, boxing, canoe / kayak, cycling, diving, equestrian, fencing, field hockey, gymnastics, handball, judo, modern pentathlon (shooting, fencing, swimming, show jumping, and running), mountain biking, rowing, sailing, shooting, soccer, swimming, synchronized swimming, table tennis, taekwondo, tennis, track and field, triathlon (swimming, biking, running), volleyball, water polo, weightlifting, and wrestling.
Even the commercials have been entertaining. Have you seen the one where they share the torch by passing it on through their phones? LOL
Go Team USA!
Do you have a favorite or do you love to watch them all?
