Did you guys get much Olympic watching in? I was hoping to, but between not having a TV and trying to use my free nights to work on the book, I feel like I didn't use enough patriotic points. Now I feel sad because it's over and I missed seeing the Spice Girls perform. Kidding. Please give me more credit than that.
These are some of the US athletes at the last London Olympics — in 1948. The city was still recovering from the war and food rations were in order. Sound familiar? Probably not. The opening ceremony cost $42 million. I know this is old news [ZING!], but I had to do something Olympic-related while it is still relevant. Nice job, Amer!
