2012 Summer Olympics
July 28, 2012
I was going to write a nice little blog about the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, which goes from Friday, July 27 to Sunday, August 12, and I got overwhelmed. There are so many discussion points: location selection, venue construction, opening ceremony, closing ceremony, hotel costs, ticket info, uniform design, the meaning of the rings, the purpose of the torch relay, attendance, political controversies, event schedules, athlete bios, coach bios, judge profiles, weather forecasts, back stories, commentator toupees. Oh, what’s a blogger to do? I tried to select just one topic, and I was as indecisive as one of those kooky contestants on Let’s Make a Deal trying to pick a winning door!
So, I will simply say that the swimming, gymnastics, and equestrian events are my favorites; and there I will be in front of my TV hopefully singing, "Oh, say can you see…"
Go Team USA!
