My British husband is equally enamored with them. Before we married, he used to take off two whole weeks from work on Olympic years (he got five weeks vacation annually, the lucky duck!!) just to watch as much of the spectacle as possible.
I've never quite had that luxury, but I sure wish I could take a break from life and plant myself in front of the TV for two weeks so I could enjoy every single moment!
But since I can't, I'll take what I can get. . .snippets, highlights, and hopefully a final here and there. It's all a spectacular global display of ability, hard work, and herculean dedication. And I LOVE it!
So, welcome Sochi 2014Winter Olympics!! I've been waiting for you. . .and I am so glad you're here!
