Instead of being captivated by the swimming events in the Olympics, I’ve instead been heavily invested in watching the USA men’s basketball team in this year’s Olympics! I’ve been mostly enjoying it since we’ve been demolishing all of the teams we’ve played, which is great because I hate sitting through a whole game only for my team to lose. I also like it because it’s not every day that you see Kobe Bryant and LeBron James, who happen to be my two favorite basketball players, play on the same team.
Since I haven’t been watching all the other events, I have been trying to feel as though I’ve been supporting all the other athletes by checking the medal totals on Yahoo every day and as of right now the USA is tied with China with the most medals won. Hopefully by the end of the Olympics we will be able to pull away and win the most! As you can tell, the Olympics usually bring out the competitive side of me! Either we win or I’ll be a very unhappy camper!
