As a family we watched the London Olympic Opening Ceremony. Mikey thought many parts were confusing, and I had to explain what a Maypole was, and why Lord Voldemort was so creepy! Ryan was oblivious as to what was going on, but asked why the kids were jumping on the beds? I myself was sadly disappointed, as a huge fan for as long as I can remember, I have never felt this way!
So, I say the heck with the pageantry, bring on the games! I can not wait to see Phelps and Lochte go head to head!(I am personally hoping Phelps gets his 3 medals to set the record, but that Lochte gets everything else!) The Fab Five, of the female gymnastics team are going to give China, a run for their money! I will be watching as Bolt, the fastest man in the world tries to set even more world records in track and field! I wish that some of the lesser followed Olympic sports would get more air time, such as USA Wrestling, but I will just have to stay up to date online! Gosh, I just love the Olympics!
Have you seen the US Swim team's "Call Me Maybe," video? It is awesome!!!
What will you be watching? What are you the most excited to see? Who are you cheering for?
