We had a great Olympic year : ) And though I'm sad that they're over, I'm counting down the days (not literally) to the Sochi, Russia 2014 Winter Olympic Games
Even though my family has never been crazy about sports, we're die-hard Olympic fans! I mean we get crazy in the living room during the competitions. For two weeks the television was on all day from morning to midnight with never-ending reports and updates.
Here are some of my favorite Olympic moments.
