Today is the official kick-off of the 2014 Winter Olympics!  I enjoy both the summer and the winter games, but definitely prefer the cold weather events.  Here are my faves for the week.




Favorite Winter Event:  Snowboarding Half Pipe

Favorite Winter Olympic Location:  Vancouver, BC!  Sorry, I loved the US locations but there was just a good vibe in Vancouver.

Favorite Olympic Drama:  Nancy Kerrigan vs Tonya Harding in Lillehammer, Norway (1994)

Favorite Female Athlete: Sarah Hendrickson - This girl is rocking the new US Ski Jumping team and she is only 19 years old!

Favorite New Event: Ski Slopestyle!  We are used to seeing snowboarders jumping and sliding over obstacles - now people do it on skis!  In the Olympics!

Until next time,
