The summer Olympics is always more interesting to me (and still is) but this year I found myself watching the events every night for the past two weeks along with all the roomies.
Favorite Winter Olympics Sport:
The only event I ever really look forward to is Figure Skating. It's amazing what those girls can do on ice. I used to hope I would be in the Olympics as a little figure skating with my one foot spins and most basic, easiest of all jumps, which was basically a hop.
This year I really got into the ice dancing and pairs skating - it's crazy that they can do those moves side by side and at the same time.
New Sports I Got Into:
Ski Jumping: I never really paid too much attention to any of the skiing but it's pretty cool that they make this look effortless.
Ski Flipping (not sure the appropriate name): again they make it look effortless
Hockey: who wasn't interested in these close games
I of course googled who TJ Oshie was
...and his girlfriend.
Sports I was Convinced I Could Do:
Skeleton: I thought for sure I could find my way into the Olympics this way (watching one night I was even laying on my stomach on the floor and Steve said I looked like a natural already) and just ride down the ice on a board... Yeah Right, I'd scream my head off.
