Farewell Olympics 2008

Whew! As much as I loved watching the Olympics this summer, I'm sorta relieved it's come to an end. It's kind of like if I had been on a 2 1/2 week vacation that was a blast. But all of the sudden, I'd start to feel an itch for getting back to my normal life. Or in this case, regular programming and not so much of it.

I recorded ALL the Olympic coverage and then we'd watch it all at night. We'd, of course, speed thru and skip certain events because otherwise we would've literally done NOTHING besides watch tv during our waking hours. But still, it was a big commitment. Lots and lots of hours of serious, dedicated tv watching.

There were so many great moments we got to witness. After the Olympics ended, NBC showed a montage of the highlight, and the unfortunate lowlights for some. Watching all that emotion is such a beautiful thing.

Then abruptly, NBC cut to a big, loud commercial advertising the new season of "Deal or No Deal". And that beautiful montage moment was clearly a thing of the past.

The Olympics are over for 2008. There were lots of champions from all over the world to inspire us all. And so many of them live right here in the USA!
