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...
