I am such a huge fan of the Olympics---doesn't matter what sport, what season, whatever, I love it all.  Gymnastics, though, causes me stress.  I am addicted to gymnastics, but when I look at the girls' bodies and imagine the passion it takes to do what they do, I wonder "should I be supporting this?"  But they do it because they love it--and they, maybe?, love the pain that goes along with the win.  And, I don't want to spoil anyone's experience, but tonight was more pain than love for one girl in particular.  Worth it?  To me, the viewer, absolutely.  She was brilliant even though she didn't "win"---but, she's not going home with a gold, and, well, they only get one shot at it really....

But I do love me some Olympics--I truly do.
