WWTK - Olympic Edition

Come join me in linking up with Mamarazzi  and Crazymama for We Want to Know Wednesday.

It's the olympics in London! Let's talk about it.

(1) What was your favorite part of the Opening Ceremonies?
I thought the whole thing was well done.  I enjoyed the teams coming in, the music by Paul McCartney, and the fireworks best.

(2) Which country are you rooting for? ( I realize we aren't all Americans)
USA, of course!  I like to see Canada win, too.  And my favorite basketball player is playing for Argentina.

(3) Which is your favorite event to watch and why?
That's easy... women's gymnastics.  I used to do a bit of gymnastics when I was young, even competing on my high school's team in 9th grade on floor exercise and beam.  I never had the skills these girls have, though!  They amaze me!  It just takes such talent and a great combination of grace, strength, and skill.

(4) Have you found a new sport that is surprisingly delightful?
No, but I have been watching more basketball this year than usual.  I think the synchronized diving is pretty cool, too.

(5) Have you always been a fan of the Olympics? What is your earliest Olympic Memory?
Yes, I always have.  I remember Dorothy Hammill winning the Ladies Singles Figure Skating in 1976 (dating myself'; I know).  That is back when the winter and summer Olympics were held in the same year every four years instead of how they do it now.  I also remember Nadia Comaneci winning the first perfect 10 ever on her bars routine in 1976.  She scored several perfect 10's in that same year (scoring is also done differently now).  Nadia won gold on all around, uneven bars, and beam. I guess 1976 when I was age 10-11 is when I first started watching the Olympics.

Before I go, I'm going to share this adorable photo with you!
