Wishful Wednesday: Olympic Greatness

Wednesday, March 3, 2010

I wish I could have gone to the 2010 Winter Olympics to have seen_____!

For me, this week's question was a no-brainer. I love sports. I've been playing some sort of athletic game probably since I could walk. T-Ball, Baseball, Softball, Soccer, Ballet, Field Hockey, Ballroom, Aerials, Fencing. You name it, I've either tried it, played it for a long time, or dreamed of trying it.

I love the adrenaline, I love the competition, I love the blood, sweat and tears that go into it, I love everything about sports.

And though we lost I would have loved nothing more to been in the arena for the USA versus Canada Gold Medal Hockey game! Watching it here, in Hungary, in the crappy "cafe/bar" in our dorm, surrounded by people who really don't care much for sports (and were mocking me or giving me questioning glances for caring so dern much) and people who didn't care if Canada won, but wanted the US to lose.

Oh and at 24 seconds in the 3rd period, with that goal - OH. MY. GOD. I was so excited. I would have given my left arm to have been in that arena!

Here are the highlights:


  1. Watching the Olympics in a foreign country is a different experience for sure. I remember watching the Athens games in the UK and we hardly saw any of the Americans competing. The British contender might be in 26th place but that's what they showed. Everyone is proud of their athletes I guess : )

  2. Yes! That was pretty awesome. Great choice!

  3. I couldn't even watch the hockey game in Korea. Hockey isn't popular here, and since it didn't feature Korean athletes, the sports channels didn't air the event. But I too would have liked to watch it!

  4. Awesome choice! I love hockey!

  5. Great choice! I was on the edge of my seat! I cannot imagine seeing it in person :) I hope you have a blessed wednesday!


  6. Such a great choice.! This game was very intense.! Wish I could have watched it also.!

  7. What a game it was!!!!! great pick!

  8. I sooo wish I could have gone too!!!! I am a sports junky to the max!
