Miracles


Haven't been feeling great today so I just finished watching "Miracle"! WOW! I LOVED IT!

I never was at all into hockey...B..U..T......HA! I was a freshman in high school when the 1980 Olympics was going on. I do remember watching Nadia Comaneci. Did you know Nadia & Bart Connors (of the 1984 Olympics) are married & have a gymnastics academy?

Take a look at this great site with some comparisons of the characters  from the movie Miracle & the real individuals they portrayed. As I watched the movie I remember that feeling of striving for something from my days in college & graduate school. Hmmm! I imagine the White Sox are feeling very similar to the 1980 Olympic Hockey team. Think there will be a movie on them? :-) What title would you give it since Miracle is already taken? Ha!

Check out the official sites for the 20062008 Olympic info! The Winter Olympics run from February 10th-26th! Here is the official site.

I'm watching ice skating right now & the Canadian pairs actually looked great moving to the theme from "Somewhere In Time", which I love! I was thrilled to go to the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island just because of this movie! This is where I did a Labyrinth for the first time & LOVED IT! Check out the site there is an explanation at the end of the site!

Well, back to watching...later!
