Are you watching the Olympic Games?
We are...but as we watched the games on television, we noticed the stadiums were empty.
I'm not sure when the decision was made to eliminate spectators,
some of the athletes have tested positive for Covid,
but it seems the decision would have been made months ago.
There is something especially sad about watching a sport in an empty,
temporary venue, built for a purpose it will never fulfill.
I could see a few journalists, cameraman, volunteers, and the officials.
The summer games are my favorite, I really enjoy gymnastics and soccer.
We attended the 1996 Summer games in Atlanta, Georgia, a trip I will always remember.
It was so exciting for so many reasons.
We watched all of the events we were personally interested in.
Mens Soccer for Mike, Mens Gymnastics for Scott,
Track & Field and Boxing for the hubs.
I found these pictures from the 96' games on-line,
I have a lot of pictures from the trip but non on my computer.
We watched this game where Brazil
won the bronze.
We were also at the gold medal game,
where we we watched Nigeria win the gold medal.
It was all so thrilling...
the events and the time we spent as a family.
The boys were getting older and I knew it would probably be our last trip as a family.
If you have a favorite sport, let me know in the comments!
