Since the Olympics are over again...
Do any of you guys have fond memories of any Olympic games?

When I was 4 years old it was a summer games year, and I recall there being a lot of tokens with the rings on them from either cereal boxes or some sort of food stuffs. It's one of the first big events I can recall watching and remembering, even if the specifics are hazy. I adored watching them though, and still adore watching Olympic games. Smile

Also known as the "Sparrow from Minsk", is a Belarusian, Soviet-born gymnast who won four gold medals and two silver medals at the Summer Olympics, in which she competed in 1972 and 1976 for the USSR team. I simply adored her. She made shit up as she went along... my kind of gal. I can never forget seeing her fuck up, then improvise a move which would be named in her honor.

I was in Massachusetts General Hospital with a bone infection during the Los Angeles games. I was in traction with various tubes, so I was stuck in bed. The Olympics were great - but then I was also on opiates.

I also had the spectacular Boston 4th of July fireworks right out my window.

I went up to the Vancouver Winter games, 2010, with two friends, and the most memorable moment was going up a flag pole to "appropriate" an Olympic flag for my bedroom wall, where it hangs today. Tongue

I keep missing events like these. Maybe they should advertise more.

I always get excited when canada does something in the summer olympics. It's like watching a home run in T-ball.

When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That's relativity.

You cannot successfully determine beforehand which side of the bread to butter.

This sort of thing doesn't usually float my boat, but take the 4mins 35secs to watch one of the best figure skating performances of all time. Gold medal? Oh, yes.
