I have never finished a second sock so fast.
Yep. We have two Panda Feet. And it's all thanks to the swimmers, rowers, divers, fencers, equestrians, runners, bicyclists, and gymnasts that kept me entertained all weekend. Wow! And apparently some new sports have been added since I last viewed the Olympics. We now have a trampoline event. Extremely cool. And Beach Volleyball. I used to think that was just people playing volleyball in the sand. Nope. It's an official Sport – 2 person teams, national and world championship events, darn exciting to watch.
As a former competitive figure skater (not terribly successful), I've always been a Winter Olympics kind of gal. These are the sports I grew up with. Plenty of snow and ice in those long New England winters. I even had the opportunity to go down the bobsled run at Lake Placid one time (four-man sled with professionals fore and aft and we two trembling amateurs in the middle). Woohoo!!!
But there are a lot more warm-weather sports than cold. And a lot more of the inhabited world that never sees snow. So, I am learning to love the Summer Olympics (except for Water Polo; I can never see who is doing what).
