The Olympics need to end sometime in the near future because I am dying from Olympic sleep deprevation! Wanting to stay up til after midnight when I have to get up at 5:45 is no fun…so I’m forcing myself to go to sleep, even though I don’t really want to! I have fallen on to the Michael Phelps band wagon! I am in love! He is amazing! I didn’t get to see him grab his 8th gold medal last night but I am so happy that he did! It seems like everyone has gotten “Phelps Fever”, and I’m not ashamed to admit it! I saw this video on the news the other day and thought it was so cute. Take a look!
Friday night I was so excited that I got to stay up and watch the women’s gymnastics all-around finals. I love gymnastics! It’s forever been one of my favorite sports to watch. Dominique Moceanu will always be one of my favorites. I’ll never forget when she and the Magnificant 7 took gold in Atlanta in 1996! It was amazing! Our team this year was pretty awesome- taking the silver in the team competition. As I sat there and watched Friday night (and EARLY into Saturday morning) I found myself crying as a I realized we had won gold and silver. Natsia Liukin became only the third U.S. woman to win gold in the all-around competition, and I bawled like a baby! Congrats to Natsia and Shawn Johnson (who took the silver!)
Okay, so that’s my Olympic Fever update for today! Just one more week to go…and then maybe I’ll be able to sleep again! 🙂
