The Olympics -- Alma Mater Pride

The Olympics have been completely captivating. I have been getting NO sleep because I've been staying up so late watching...Track & Field? What is it about the Olympics that gets me interested in sprints and hurdles? To top it off, I get emotional when a complete stranger wins a medal? 

Perhaps it's the fact that I'm a sucker for tradition. After all, my alma mater, University of Southern California (USC), has sent more athletes to the Olympic Games than any other University. If USC were a country, its 123 gold medals would rank it 12th in Olympic history. Pretty cool, huh? I have a whole new appreciation for my school! 

What's really got me hooked is when I see a person's dream turn into a reality. I love a good fairy tale. Gotta love the Olympics...

Ryan Lochte's never too hard on the eyes...

Gotta love those Brits!

  1. I love this Christina. So true..."when someone's dream can become a reality."!!! We all need to dream big and teach our kids and others the same thing. You might not always hit your mark but you will be that much better off for expanding your reach.
