While Michael is draining the swamp, the DVR is working overtime recording events for him to watch later. We both love Winter Olympics! There are very few events we do not enjoy watching. We got into Curling several Olympics ago and sit on the edge of our seats yelling "Sweep! Sweep!" like we can help. New event, Team Figureskating, has been great to watch. I like that we get more than one opportunity to see the Figure skaters. What is it about the Winter Olympics that everyone loves so much? I think it is the speed! People on skis, luges, bobsleds, or skates go ever so much faster than people running! One finds oneself holding that last breath as the athletes plummet down a snow-covered hill or trust to a small sled (luge) to take them through an icy course. Even cross-country skiing seems more exciting than a summer marathon. Enjoy the Olympics and may your teams do well! ~The Wife
