All my friends know I go absolutely gaga for the Olympics. In fact my husband and I started dating during the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver. Some of our first dates were actually spent on my couch watching the games and me giddy over a combination of dating this great guy and catching my favorite sporting event that comes around every other year.
While I love the flash of the Summer Games and its high profile events like gymnastics, swimming and soccer. The Winter Olympics are my favorite having grown up playing in snow forts and skiing all winter long at my family's cabin in upstate New York.
My favorite events are downhill skiing, moguls, bobsled, skeleton, hockey and figure skating. I remember tearing up watching Tara Lipinski win her gold medal to the Anastasia Soundtrack and cheering for Lindsey Vonn in the 2010 games. Johnny Moseley was a god to me powering down the mogul track and throwing insane tricks in there and let's be honest "Cool Runnings" and "Miracle" are two of my favorite sports movies every made (and they are about the Winter Games).
