1. ) I always think it is so sweet when they quietly sing along... Julia Mancuso, the Tiara wearing skier, sang quietly from the Silver Medal Podium when Linsey Vonn won Gold for the US.
2. ) Removal of the hat is a must... I was so glad to see Bode Miller remove his - even though I think he wondered if his hair was a mess - he quickly stroked his hand through it, enjoyed the anthem, and immediately put his hat back on afterwards. (I do wish he had put his hand on his heart, though.)
My favorite Olympic Event has always been the Ice Skating. I don't know why I enjoy a sport that has to do with Judges. Other sports that deal with time and measurements must be so much fairer.
Tonight (Tuesday) the Ladies take the Ice...
My prayers go out to the Canadian figure skating star, Joannie Rochette, whose Mother passed away on Sunday of a heart attack at the age of 55, shortly after arriving in Vancouver. Somehow, Joannie, will still compete in these olympic games and perform her first program tonight, two days after her Mother's unexpected death.
I look forward to watching her and our American Girls compete in figure skating... Tonight.
