I find myself getting little sleep as I'm up til midnight waiting to see if another American can take the gold. I can't get over the drive, dedication and discipline that the athletes have. They are truly amazing. I get all teary eyed along with the athletes as I see them stand proud on the podium while The Star Spangled Banner is played. I also feel an athlete's heartbreak when they don't do well. Can you imagine training for 4 years for one moment in time only to have it all taken away in a flash by a mistake? And what about the commercials? Oh they're awesome and really heart warming!
Ok, I'll step off my soap box now, but I have to leave you with some of my favorites:

Olympic closing ceremonies are Sunday night, sniff sniff :( I sure am going to miss them, yet I will be grateful for getting some sleep back!
