Re: 2012 Olympics Thread
A few thoughts from London.
1). I'm coming back in 4 years just to watch their coverage. It's great. They show the events all day every day. No fluff. No commercials. Just events.
2) We were at track & field 2 nights ago when GB won gold in the heptathlon, M long jump, and M 10k. It was nuts. Search for the video of the BBC crew cheering for Mo Farrah at the end of the 10,000 meters. Multiply that by everyone in the stadium.
3) We sat in row 1 for a quarterfinal soccer match in Wembley Stadium. I could have spit on the corner flag, that's how close we were. I'm not a big soccer fan, but after sitting that close to the field, I can sure appreciate the game a lot more.
Men's volleyball today, preceded by a tour at Buckingham Palace.
Life is good.
