Friday, August 8, 2008 is the official opening of the Beijing Olympics - I love this every 4 year sports celebration of skill and sweat.
I immerse myself for 2 weeks in all the pageantry and drama of victory / defeat - the opening/closing ceremonies, Track & Field, Diving, Gymnastics, the assorted American "dream teams". True, there may only be a few gold medals given out at the Olympics, however, there aren't many athletes that can call themselves "Olympians" either. They should all be proud.
"8" is considered a lucky number in the Chinese culture, it will be a time of glory for some and disappointment for others, but, congratulations to all. I'll be watching from my couch.
