I like millions of others will be parked on my couch tonight to watch the opening ceremonies....I'm so excited. First of all I love London, so to have it held there and see the sites we've visited and possible sightings of my favorite Brits like.....The Royal family or Beckham or a shirtless Beckham! Plus ten years ago the Winter games were held in Salt Lake City, Utah where we lived at the time.
Ten years ago we were so lucky as locals to experience the torch runs and various free advents going on through out the city. My husband volunteered for a week on the down hill ski races. It was a high light of a skier life to be amongst such champions of a sport you love.
My Mom is a big Olympic pin trader....I had no idea...you should have seen her in action!
Buy and wear the Olympic beret
Meet a Olympian-Picabo Street
As a local the only two negatives I remember is at the time I work down town...it was impossible to drive or find parking. So public transportation was my ride and during that time I ended up catching Pneumonia....my Olympic fever....or 8 weeks of hell recovering!
Enjoy your weekend! Go Team USA!!
