The 2008 Summer Olympics Are Here!

Every two years we're given the opportunity to duke it out with other athletes from all across the world.

Watching the opening ceremonies tonight was really a beautiful thing, not only because the extravagant presentation cost 300 million dollars but because seeing all of the countries walking proudly with their flags reminded me of how big the world really is.

I've always loved the Olympics, especially the summer ones.  I've gotta say gymnastics is my favorite.  It's so amazing to me how those men and women can gracefully fly through the air and stand on a balance beam the size of a VHS tape.

I hope you'll be able to sit and enjoy the Olympic games on WITN over the next two weeks.  In my family we used to sit around the tube and watch the athletes break records and marvel in the raw talent mixed with years of training.  It is amazing and oh yeah...GO USA!!

    All I can say is I hope the US Woman's Volley Ball team is as hot this year as the one four years ago!
