The Olympics start tonight and like any good Olympics-obsessed sports fan, I’m excited. Tonight’s Opening Ceremonies will be the first at an indoor location, which surprised me when I read it earlier this year. I knew I couldn’t remember one, but I didn’t realize that none had existed.
I’m very excited to be attending my first Winter Olympic Games and love that I’ll be able to see a lot of events while I’m in Vancouver. I’ve only been to one Olympic event in the past and though I had an amazing time there, I’m looking forward to being able to spend a whole week at the Olympics in Vancouver. I hear Vancouver is a beautiful city and I look forward to enjoying the surroundings and the Olympic games.
For those who have wondered, I’m attending the Olympics as a fan. I can’t wait to cheer on team USA in many Olympic sports (including, of course, my favorite – ice hockey). I’ll definitely be posting stories of my adventures in Vancouver as I attend the Olympics with my only friend who’s more obsessed than I.
On a sad note, I was so sorry to hear of the Georgian athlete who died during the luge practice runs today. My heart goes out to his family and I hope there will be no more serious injuries or deaths during the Olympics.
