I love the summer Olympics. Don’t get me wrong, I think the winter Olympics has its perks, but I love the summer ones. I did gymnastics as a kid and have always been obsessed with that portion of the Olympics. I also had a huge crush on these guys:
Paul and Morgan Hamm (or is it Morgan and Paul?)
So at 13, this is why I was watching men’s gymnastics. Boy crazy, much?
I also, did gymnastics when these ladies were popular.
I mean, that hair, those swishy track suits, and the scrunchies, what’s not to love?
I remember watching Keri Strugg injure herself, and my sister loved Dominique Moceanu. They were all so impressive.
I do, now, as an adult, love swimming. And not just for Michael Phelps, in fact, I don’ really like him. He’s only okay. I prefer watching this video, it is hilarious:
Enjoy the Olympics, and I hope you laughed as much as I did at the United States’ uniforms. I think the berets were a little bit ridiculous, actually. My sister said that cowboy hats would have been more American.
