If you know me at all, you know I haven't stopped talking about the Olympics since the beginning of July. And unless you live under a rock, you know that finally, the 2016 Summer Olympics have started in Rio de Janeiro (this is where I insert a heart felt apology for any of you who follow me on Twitter and have to deal with my emotionally charged tweets about Team USA. Except I'm not really sorry). Here are a collection of gifs that encompass every feeling I have while watching the Olympics, as told by the cast of "Parks and Recreation."
When the first gold medal of the Olympics was awarded to an American woman
Watching a gymnast almost fall/fall in competition
When it's only been two days of official competition but you wish America had more medals
Seeing a swimmer right before an event and trying to make sure his mind is in the game
Every time an American is edged off the podium in an event
When America wins a medal
When people try to change the channel in the middle of an event you love
And finally, feeling an overwhelming amount of pride in being an American and watching the American athletes crush it
The 2016 Olympics are already off to a great start, and I can't wait to see what else America can do this year. U-S-A! U-S-A!
