At approximately 9:30 p.m. ET Friday night, I caught Olympic fever. I was just finishing a glass of frozen sangria (highly recommended) when my friend Ron looked up at the television screen opposite our table and said, “I don’t get this sport.” It was synchronized swimming.

I should have asked why this Mexican restaurant was showing synchronized swimming, and more importantly, if it will be doing so during the Summer Olympics (which begin August 8). But my mind was too busy wondering when they started tossing women out of the water. Awesome.

Who else has Olympic fever, and for what sport? If that little Shawn Johnson doesn’t have you looking forward to women’s gymnastics, you have no heart.
