I've been watching closely, and so far it's been a pretty entertaining games.
As I watched Alexandre Bilodeau win the first gold medal for Canada in a Home Olympics, something dawned on me.
What I love about the Olympics so much is watching people cheer on athletes...not just their own home country athletes, but all of the athletes. Even as the crowd waited for the final score in the mogul even that Bilodeau was trying to win, they were still cheering for the competitor that was currently skiing.
It's refreshing to see people just cheering on athletes, instead of cheering on only their favorite athletes. It's refreshing to not hear any boos echoing from the crowd.
