Beijing Birds Nest Stadium - 08 08 008
The Olympics are here! I glimmer that Summer isn't over yet, and nostalgia of all the Olympics we'd wait to watch on NBC and think maybe someday we'd get to go, even fantasize that we'd participate in some sport. They never did add Roller Skating to the menu, so my chances were slim! The Road Race is TOMORROW and ends passing under the GREAT WALL OF CHINA! How cool is that?!
Be sure to watch (just to name some of my favorites):
Levi Leipheimer and George Hincapie,
Taylor Phinney, Jason McCartney,
Christian Vande Velde, David Zabriskie,
Mike Day, Kyle Bennett, Todd Wells -
...just to name some that I recognize.
And of course... the Ladies!
JILL KINTNER (our SLaB girl!) in BMX,
Mary McConneloug on Mtn xCountry
Christine Thornburn and Kristin Armstrong - road/track
