apparently its not an accident that the Chinese chose today to start the Olympics. 8 is considered one of the luckiest numbers. and a day like this only comes around once a century.
this morning while getting dressed & listening to the news, Matt Lauer started talking about Michael Phelps and the song "Stronger" started playing in the background. I did a little dance & got a little choked up. I'm excited. The Olympics are here...
Considering that I'm not an athlete, I really enjoy the Olympics. I enjoy watching these people struggle, succeed & shine. Its amazing what some people can do.
I can't wait to watch the opening ceremonies tonight - I hear they're going to be spectacular. I think its so neat that we're having that Lost Boy from Sudan carry our flag in to represent our country. (I might have just gotten a little choked up again...)
Michael Phelps kick some trash. And that Dara Torres - amazing woman!!!
