Do you remember this? Watching Mark Spitz win his 7th medal was one of my where were you moments.. I remember how hyped up we all were.. and the Munich Olympics were in September so we were back in school.. We weren't really allowed to stay up late on normal occasions but this was the Olympics!! We were all set.. I lay on the carpet in front of our console TV (my favorite viewing spot) and waited.. and waited.. Gradually my eyes closed and I fell asleep. Next thing my ten year old self knew my dad was waking me up so I wouldn't miss it.. It was such an awesome moment.
