The Vancouver 2010 Olympics have arrived...and I've finally found my Olympic spirit. It was a long time coming.

From the beginning, the games were shrouded in a cloud of problems. You name it...and there was a controversy about it. From venue issues to money problems, every week seemed to uncover a new problem and I found myself not caring about the Olympics. I kept telling myself this was crazy. Why? Because I had never lived in a city where the Olympics had been held and this would be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. But no matter how hard I tried...I couldn't shake the "I don't care" attitude. The "red zones" and increased traffic did nothing to improve my mood.

Then…Tuesday arrived and something magical happened. The torch made its way through my neighborhood. Even though I was working on this day, I still managed to catch a glimpse of the torch on my way to work. I encountered the torch two more times over the next two days. Each time my spirit grew. I actually became quite emotional at one point when I saw a sea of red mittens waving in the pouring rain....and smiles on each and every face I saw. It was truly incredible.

Instead of seeing protestors and people who were apathetic about supporting the Olympics...I saw a community coming together…bonding…and celebrating a wonderful moment in time.

Yes, it was a long time coming. But my Olympic spirit has finally arrived. Do I believe in the Vancouver 2010 Olympics? Yes...you bet your sweet ass…I most definitely believe!

So Pervia…which Olympic events are you excited about?

Me? I’m really looking forward to the ice skating, hockey and snowboarding events.

Your turn…

Right now USA leads the medal count with 8 as of last night. I'm sure that's changed by now.

I didn't get a chance to watch the olympics last night, but I'm going to try to toon into them tonight.
