Who will go with me to London this coming July/August for the 2012 Summer Olympics?:lol:biggrin( how i wish)

Barcelona ( 1992) and Sydney ( 2000) were two of the most legendary Summer Olympic host in history. What do you think about London as the venue for this year?

Speaking of the Olympics. I should probably start working out. I used to run pretty fast, and they'll probably be looking for some fast runners.

I think Stove runs, too. Bolts looks like an athlete. StoveBolts should help. Just ask him to give you the how. :lol ;)

I am only fifty-nine. I'm sure Stovebolts can whip me into shape in no time at all.

I grew up loving the Olympics! But in recent years, I have to force myself to ignore a few things. Allowing paid professional athletes in has muddied the waters. Even if other nations bent the rules, I don't like known professional sports stars playing in the games.

I also can't help but feel that most of the athletes come from very wealthy families who are the few that can afford to put life on hold and fund their training full-time. I have no socioeconomic envy. It's just that I love to imagine a certain innocence in these games that really isn't there. When wealthy parents pay their child's way to the Olympics with years of private training, often out of state, and they don't need to work or go to school, that steals from the innocence.

I'll force all that aside and enjoy the games. :halo

Stove and I will run in all the relays. I will run first and third, and he will run second and fourth.
