I love the Olympics

I LOVE the Olympics. As soon as I hear the theme song, with those trumpets blaring my heart does a little leap. I have such a vivid memory of the 1984 Games in Los Angeles. Oh Mary Lou! (Bela too!) I remember sitting in the living room on the floor with my legs and fingers crossed as she went for her final vault. She needed a perfect 10 to be the 1st American to win the Gold in the all around She took off with a burst, I held my breath. And she nailed it!! She stuck that landing. She won the gold by.05 points. I was so excited. Of course I had a matching USA flag leotard and NO I'm sure my mom doesn't have a photo of me in it.

Enjoy the Olympics!!
