I love that shuffle board on ice, also known as curling, is an Olympic sport. I’m not putting it down, clearly it involves skill and strategy, and it is a throwback to another time when people who lived in ridiculously cold climates needed to find a way to pass the time.

I know, a lot of other people don’t like them but I love the profiles, stories about how athletes got started and what motivated them – tragic loss, bone-crushing injuries and lost family members.
I love Lindsay, Apollo, Shani, Bode and Johnny.

I love the Chinese couple Shen Xue and Zhao Hongbo who came out of retirement to win the gold in pair’s figure skating.

I love that team USA beat the Canadians in ice hockey.
From ReutersI love Vancouver. I want to go back as soon as humanly possible. I want a pair of those mittens that everyone is rocking (which can be mine for $20.00 on eBay – I’m seriously thinking about it).

For a long time I was ashamed of my Olympic addiction. But I’ve decided not to hide anymore. And even though Seattle is going through a heat wave in February, I’m glued to my television. And damn proud too.
USA! USA! USA! USA! USA!
