The 2010 Winter Olympics, and a Fitness Diva Giveaway!!

AND THE WINNER IS.....




Reality TV Rave!

I gotta tell ya, this is Reality's lucky year! She just got finished winning one of my Lucky 100 Links a couple weeks ago! Congrats, Reality, and I'll be contacting you to get the info I need to send your $25.00 Amazon gift card!
And thanks to all of you who entered. This was fun! We must do it again soon! ;)





Woo hoo! You all know I am an Olympics junkie, and the Winter Olympics are just like the ice cream that goes along with the cake for me. I love watching the skiers, the luge, the figure skating, and of course, my snowboarders! The other sports don't escape my attention either. Love 'em all!

I am always so awestruck and inspired by the level of talent on display upon the world's stage during this event.
I also enjoy the drama; "the thrill of victory, and the agony of defeat", the back stories that they come up with for some of the competitors and their special little mini dramas....it's like an athletic soap opera! 'Who will get the gold? Will he/she finally clinch the medal at this, his very last Olympics??? Will competitor xxx from country yyy overcome the recent personal tragedy that overshadowed his last year of training for the gold??? And how about so and so, the severely underestimated underdog who managed to beat some of the best in the world and make it through all the trials to clinch a spot on the Olympic team??? O...M...G!!!! Love every bit of it, just like I do the Summer Games!

AND GUESS WHAT. THE FITNESS DIVA LOVES THE OLYMICS SO MUCH THAT SHE'S HAVING A WINTER OLYMPICS GIVEAWAY!!!!!! WOOOOOOOOO!!!

Just name the 15 sports comprising the Winter Games, and you could win a $25.00 Amazon gift card!!


The rules are simple:
Comment on this post with your answers, listing all 15 winter Olympic sports.
Include the email address you where want to have the prize sent to if you win.
Sit back and hope lady luck picks your name!
The winner will be chosen randomly, most likely out of a hat. I might video it. ;)
All entries must be received by 11:59 PM EST Sunday, Feb 14th, Valentine's Day.
Any place in the world that can use Amazon.com is eligible.

I will withhold all replies until the contest closes Sunday night, but this one is easy, folks! You all know how to find the answers, you web mavens! That's why I'm picking a winner randomly.

Okay, let's get crackin'!
And Happy Winter Olympics to you!
