The moment we've been waiting for arrives tonight! The 2016 Summer Olympics will officially kick off with the opening ceremony tonight, which is essentially nothing more than a parade of athletes. Are any of you planning on watching the opening ceremony in Rio? Although I plan to watch as much of the Olympic competition as I can over the next two weeks, I most likely won't watch the opening ceremony. Not that I have anything against it, but to me it's just a bunch of athletes walking around waving their country's flag. Woo-hoo, very exciting! Actually, the lighting of the torch is pretty interesting, so I may watch that, but then I'll move on to other things. It is, after all, Friday night!

I definitely don't get as enthused about the summer Olympics as I used to. There are a few sports (volleyball, gymnastics, swimming, and sailing) that I still enjoy watching, but I don't keep myself glued to the tv like I used to.
