Are you excited about them? Are you lucky enough to be able to go to some of the events? Are you going to follow the events on TV?

I'm very excited as well. Having been a high end competitive athlete for so many years, I love watching both summer & winter Olympics (but especially the summer, because that is when the swimming -- my sport -- is on). I've even known someone on the USA Olympic Swim Team. I watch the live USA swimming trials as well because I tend to know a lot of the competitors, some of whom just barely missed the 2008 team. I also know someone who competed in the 2006 winter Olympics & will be competing again this year. She just missed the gold last time (she should have gotten it, but she goofed off & fell at the very end). It's a small world.

I think the winter Olympics has more events that more people are interested in, though. I like most events in the winter Olympics, especially the figure skating, downhill skiing, speed skating, and bobsledding. Boy, just talking about this is getting me excited! I hope I get to watch it regularly in the evenings, be nice to me schoolwork!

Sorry, Suzanne, but I have to root against you.
GO USA!!!!
