The closing ceremony is one day away. Should we just go to will-call for our tickets?
My wife and I have four kids. Some days they test our patience. During our flight here we were lucky enough to spend some time with a young girl who took the test to another level. During our seven hours we were serenaded with this two-year old’s only word (please read: sound)… Nah. Some of the others in our party debated the actual word, but being as I was in the row directly behind this young lady, I am going with a sharp ‘nah’.
After getting settled in our hotel, Avis, Damien (Suzanne’s fencing coach), and I headed to the Proctor and Gamble house to meet up with Suzanne.The P&G house is a place for athletes to met up with friends and family; you just have to be ‘on the list’. Lucky for me, Suzanne likes me enough to grant me access.
After picking up a considerable amount of all things Proctor and Gamble, we headed back to our hotel, giving Suzanne a chance to meet up with her family, who she hasn’t seen in months.
The big day is tomorrow, and Suzanne is itching to race. Fencing starts the day-long competition at 8:00a. I will be in two competitions of my own; the first with trying to out-post our SID with live results (I think being here gives me the edge). The second one is in the Twitter-sphere with Suzanne. Her number of followers has sky-rocketed this last month, or so. I guess being Olympian helps with this popularity thing.
Shannon and I are headed this today to take in London. It’s going to be a great day.
If there are any typos, etc. please forgive me. I am using an iPad to type this…aggravating to say the least.
Keep it real,
