99 Days...




Only 99 days until the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. Say what you will about the controversies and China's policies, I'm still looking forward to this. I love the Olympics: the pomp, circumstance and pageantry... the thrill of victory, the agony of defeat, the human drama of athletic competition...


I fully admit to getting teary-eyed when the torch gets lit and I'm a bit wistful when it is extinguished two weeks later. Plus, any chance to see hot looking guys sweating is always good in my book.

I'm with you on the hot, sweaty athletes. But I've decided to swear off the Olympics this year--the whole human rights/Tibet thing really gets under my skin. My partner, however, just rolls his eyes. He'll probably torture me by watching the diving competition...
