When I was a little kid, I really enjoyed the Olympics. It was awesome because the winter ones were the same year as the summer ones. I forget when they started to alternate between winter & summer every 2 years compared to the both-every-4 format. Doesn't matter.
At some point, I just didn't get into it any more. Maybe it was high school. I had never really gotten into it since.
This year, though, I've just been into it. It's not even that I've jumped on the Michael Phelps bandwagon, either. I've been watching everything.
Well, most everything. The whole open big square gymnast mat where they go dancing around just doesn't do much for me. They're good at what they do, I just don't enjoy it.
I will say that I did know who Michael Phelps was before this Olympics. (That's about the extent of my knowledge, though.)
What he & his team did was incredible. Props to him!
I watched the men race in the 100m dash.. That was pretty incredible. I can't imagine letting up at 85m saying that you're all good. Sure, he (Bolt) won by a good bit, but wouldn't you want to let it all out? It's only 100 meters. It's not the 85 meter dash.
Anyway, it's all been amazing, the athletes and such. Been enjoying it.
