Re: Summer Olympics

  • That's CRAZY!! As a former swimmer, I love the summer Olymipcs!! And it makes my stomach do flips knowing we'll be MARRIED for the opening ceremony!!!
  • I am! I always enjoy diving and the track and field events. I remember when it was in Japan there was sumo wrestling and that was fun to watch. I didn't get to watch much of it last time so I'm drawing a blank on what else there is.

  • I'm an Olympic junkie (both summer and winter). I can't get enough of it. I'm excited to see it in London because London is my favorite city and I lived there for a year in college. I love watching all sports especially track and field which was my high school events and gymnastics. I also think diving is really cool too.

    This. I always watch and love every minute of it. Reminds me of my dad (who passed away) because I have this random memory of watching the Olympics with him at our grocery store breakfast counter when I was about 3. It's not like he was an Olympic athlete or anything, but it just reminds me of that day.

    I don't have any sport in particular I like to watch, I just like to cheer on the Canadians because I love me some Canada.

  • I love watching the Olympics, both summer and winter, and I can't wait for them to start this year!  
  • I love them all but soccer is the best. I saw a story earlier today about how there's a 71 year old man from Japan competing in equestrian. Pretty sweet! He must be pretty awesome to make the Olympic team at that age.
  • I can't wait! Going to the Olympics is on my bucket list. I still remember watching Kerri Strung in 96. She definitely made me want to be a gymnast!

  • I watch even the boring stuff... I'm just mesmerized by the Olympics in general.
    My favorites are gymnastics, mountain biking, volleyball, 50km racewalking (Latvia has had great success in this one) and highjump.
    now, don't get me started about the winter olympics, though... i get super excited about those!

    and I'm kind of excited to see how all the international roots will come out on these boards hehe. I will have to root for Latvians, ya know :)

  • For living in London I loved the tube system. It was efficient and clean. I liked getting anywhere in the city quickly. I also loved the fact that they sell Cadbury Creme Eggs all year around...they even have vending machines with just them in it in the Tube stations. I also liked all the museums and theatres. It was a great time however very expensive!

  • I love the olympics, and I'm sure I'll have a newfound "appreciation" for them after working on the team that takes the donation phone calls this summer lol.
  • That's so cool Amy! I'm sure you guys will have a blast there.
  • Harper, did you ever get a Kinder Surprise egg, though? I miss those things so much :(
    they're basically chocolate eggs with milk chocolate on the outer shell and white chocolate on the inner side. and then within the shell there is a plastic egg, that has a tiny little toy inside. you never know what it is going to be until you unwrap it. the reason why your childhood has not been magnificently improved by this amazing miracle of a food is because FDA does not allow for an inedible to be placed inside of an edible item. thank's America, for ruining my Easter!! hahaa :):) seriously, though, if you go to Europe, try one of those. they're a lot of fun. some crazy Europeans love them so much that once they move to the states they find a way to smuggle them in from Canada, no joke!

  • Men's individual is July 29 and Men's team is Aug 3rd but I don't want to be in London for 7 days.... So I might just meet (then husband!) for the last event and hopefully fly to Italy for honeymoon after.

    I know everything will be very crowded and expensive in London!

  • I cannot wait. I watch all the soccer games, gymnastics, swimming, and diving. Oh and beach volleyball. I cannot stand watching Track and Field or anything else along that line.

    I have always wanted to actually attend the Olympics. Maybe one day I will be able to. I also thought it would be neat to actually compete in the Olympics.

    I hate that I only have bunny ears and no cable to watch the Olympics. :(

I usually have to read the results before I watch just to calm myself down!</div>

    I love them. There is a shop in Seattle at Pikes Market that sells them. Every time I go and visit my brother I have to get one. I have a huge collection of the toys from them. When we left Germany in the 90s, mom shipped over a whole case of them and we made them last for about a year.

  • I LOVE all the Olympics.

    I also was a swimmer, so swimming is my favorite but I really will watch just about everything. Except basketball probably. I kinda hate basketball more and more everyday.

  • We RECORD the Olympics and watch just about everything too.
  • I forgot about Kinder Surprise eggs. We would get them all the time in London. My best friend also lived there with me and she is from Bosnia and loved those things. I can actually find them at an international grocery store here in Cincy. I also buy them for her on her birthday.
