Team USA and DIRECTV: winning together

Olympic athletes

Every four years, our country comes together to watch the best of the best compete in the Olympic Games. As soon as I tune in, I instantly become the expert and biggest fan of sports I have never watched or even knew existed.

I can tell you if a gymnast stuck her landing. I’ll be the first to shout out if a diver made too much of a splash, or who crossed the finish line first before collapsing to the ground in agony. And I know I’m not alone in my newfound badminton expertise.

TVs that usually show professional baseball, basketball, and football games now show athletes swimming faster than dolphins and leaping higher than gazelles. And I’ll admit, sometimes I get a little choked up when I hear our national anthem play during a medal ceremony. It truly is an amazing time.
