i misread the title of that article the first time. i thought it said, "100 olympic athletes that need to know about you."

my favorites used to be gymnastics, swimming, diving and track & field, but now my favorite is the story of you yakking at 4 different olympic venues in 1996.

I also enjoy the Olympics and it's one of the rare times that DH and I will watch TV together. Our tastes are very far apart so we're usually in different rooms!
