So 100 days from now is the start of the Summer Olympics in London and Team USA organized a huge event in Times Square to celebrate. I just happened to work about 100 feet from the site. : ) Here are a couple of pics and scans from the event.
Beach Volleyball in Times Square
Of course, I did pick up a couple of autographs.
Alaina Williams – Gymnastics/ Trampoline
Jeffrey Gluckstein – Gymnastics/ Trampoline
Merrill Moses – Water Polo
Merrill Moses has won silver in the 2008 Olympics. But unfortunately according to his wikipedia page, his silver medal and other Olympics perks were stolen during a stickup. That is just horrible.
On a slight tangent, one of the problems of the Olympics is that there is simply so much going on so someone’s favorite sports is going to get the short end but if I remember right NBC is going to stream everything live which should be awesome!
