2010 Winter Olympics Begins Tonight!

I love the Olympics. In every one, there are home team favorites, Cinderella-story underdogs, surprise upsets, and victories that defy all odds. That for two weeks we can set aside cultural, political, religious, and any and all other differences to celebrate in camaraderie all that the human spirit can accomplish is astounding. It makes me at times hold my breath, then cry, then cheer, and then makes my heart ache with pride.
