So have y'all been watching any of the Olympics this summer? We have watched a bit here this time around... I like the swimming the best for summer, but surprisingly got taken in by the beach volleyball this summer. Has been a pretty good Olympics imo.
However, my favorite type of games are the Winter Olympics. My folks were skiers (my ma even has a downhill trophy) and so I've been around winter sports all my life. My favorite Olympics game years have so far: 1984 is in the runner up spot. The Winters that year were in Sarajevo, and that was the year Bill Johnson won the very first Olympic Downhill Gold.
But my favorite games were the Winters in 2002 in Salt Lake City. I loved those games. I'm crazy enough that I actually went skiing the next year in Park City, where the skiing venues were, and stayed in a small condo right off where the medal ceremony area was. Last night I found the 2 wrap up videos that NBC did for those games. I give them to you below.
So are you watching them this year? And if you ever did watch them in your lifetime, what games/moments were your favorites?
