Yes, they are on a time delay that doesn’t work in today’s world. Yes, the announcers are incredibly annoying. But it’s the Olympics, and, truth be told, I bought a new aerial antenna for the occasion.
They happen every four years, but I’ll tell you the Summer Olympics I remember the most. The 1984 Olympic games, held in L.A. are the ones I remember. My brother and I spent the better part of two weeks in our basement, watching the games. It makes sense that these games would stick out to me – since the U.S. boycotted the 1980 games in Moscow, these were THE games of my childhood.
This summer, my kids are four and seven, and they can’t get enough of team USA. Which Olympic games stick out in your mind? Why?
