For two weeks now, I have been completely obsessed with The Olympics.  I have literally watched everything that has been televised during any free moment that I have had.  Who knew water polo was so fascinating?  And who would have thought pole vaulting could be so entertaining?  It has been great watching people from all over the globe excel in their events.  I am extremely proud of our American athletes, and I am sad that the London Games are quickly coming to an end.
