Bring Home the Gold!

The opening ceremonies of the 2012 Olympic Games took place Friday in London.  Did you watch?   I did. 
With great anticipation, I look forward to the story the host country will tell.  How they will portray themselves?  What kind of magic will happen that will light up the sky?   I still remember the opening ceremonies from past games that took place in France, US, and China.  They did not disappoint. 
Of course, every story needs a hero.  Only with the Olympics, there are hundreds of heroes and I’m swept up in their struggles, disappointments and triumphs.   I am always captivated by an athlete’s quest for perfection while a billion eyes watch every move they make.  Talk about pressure.   Whoa!

Till next time,

I'm usually more of a winter Olympics kind of gal, but I hope to check out some highlights online this weekend. Go teams!
