The 2010 Winter Olympic Games start today!!!! http://www.vancouver2010.com/

For the next 17 days, athletes from all across the world will come together in Vancouver to compete for their country in hopes from an Olympic Medal.

When checking in to the TV schedule for the next few weeks, I got even more excited.  Here are the top 5 things I Love about the Winter Olympics:

5.  Skeleton— It was actually named for the “sled” you ride on, not for what you will end up as if you fall off the thing traveling nearly 90 MPH.

4.  Short track speed skating—The races are very tactical and exciting to watch.

3.  The Medals Ceremony—hearing our National Anthem over and over…..in this venue, it just never gets old.

2. Downhill skiing—has an added allure for me this year with my new found hobby. I feel like I know more about what is going on. Read more about my skiing debut here:

1. The Commercials—There is just nothing like the Olympics to make for some commercials that really touch your heart…here is one that captures mine.

I truly love sports at every level but there is just something so special about the Olympics.
