I'm gaga over the Winter Olympics.
My family and friends know this. I have been for decades. I like the Summer Olympics too, but the Winter Olympics, for me, are the pinnacle. Perhaps it is because I live in the north country and have dabbled in many of the sports, downhill and cross-country skiing as well as ice skating and curling.
I clear my calendar for those weeks inasmuch as is possible and binge watch, all projects on hold. I've downloaded the NBC Olympics app on my phone and I'm good to go.
This year, four events will make their debut: speed skating mass start, mixed doubles curling, big air, and mixed team alpine skiing.
I have many vivid memories of Winter Olympics past and even occasionally watch the Olympics channel our cable provider offers. Who can forget the moment when Neil Young appeared in the Vancouver closing ceremonies? My husband teases me about my admiration for Evan Lysacek.
Because of this passion, my blog will be on hiatus most of the rest of February.
