I am so proud to be an American!!

This isn't my typical "bookie" post but I had to pause to say how blessed I am to be an American!! There are so many blessings that are provided to those of us who live in this country one of which is our men's and women's hockey teams in the Olympics!!! I'm so proud of our men beating the skates off of Canada tonight 5-3!! We haven't done that since 1960! Our men were wearing 1960 throwback jerseys and they played a great game! Kudos to goal tender Miller for his super awesome saves!

Other great mentions...Bode's gold medal..way to go man! Our ice dancing contestants...2 teams are going for the gold tomorrow evening!! Apolo can I say? The man is making some major history!! There are so many others I could mention but I think you get the point.

This is the first time I've really watched the Olympics as closely as I have. I am an avid hockey fan and now want to know more about curling. It seems like a pretty cool little sport and one that I might want to try my hand at!

Needless to say, my reading has slacked a bit since the Olympics have started. I do have a few reviews coming this week though, so don't be dismayed! I do hope to start reading a bit more once the Olympics least the hockey!!

  1. I was really happy for Bode finally getting his gold medal. These have been amazing games so far.

  2. The won, but didn't beat the skates off Canada at all. Canada had more shots than USA, and is a better team.

    USA got lucky!

  3. I've been watching a lot more of the Olympics coverage than I usually do. Watching Apolo Ohno has been the highlight for me so far!
