The 2016 Olympics are on TV and in sports pages and all over the web. I love the thrill of the Games because while I want the US to win medals, I just want to see amazing athletes doing their best- like that Hungarian swimmer whose husband was going crazy in the stands, shouting encouragement to her. The best part… she won the gold!
