I have to be honest... I've never really watched them in previous years other than to catch a little bit of the women's figure skating here and there.
However, I can't seem to keep my eyes off the tv in the evenings right now. The skiing, the snowboarding, the speed skating... it's all just blowing my mind!
The more I watch, the more I become sure of one thing... to be a summer Olympian is pretty cool and requires a ton of hard work. I think the same is true for winter Olympians, but I think they require something a little extra than those in the summer sports - they have to be FEARLESS.
Can you believe some of the falls we've seen? Can you imagine what would happen if they fell during some of the tricks they're doing? I always find myself holding my breath a bit when they fly up in the air or something.
Anyways, if you're not watching, I just wanted to say that you should. I've been blown away!
