Olympic Rowing 2012: the US Women do it again

I woke up this morning, and before climbing out of bed, turned on my phone’s Olympics app and tuned into the finals of the Women’s eights just in time to see the US win its second gold medal in two games. My daughter’s classmate, Ellie Logan, is a member of the team, so it was very cool to see her on the medal stand a second time.

The highlight of Beijing was watching her crew win their first gold at Shunyi, and to stand in the grandstands as the Star Spangled Banner was played, bellowing the words with my friend Mike Mann while the Chinese fans all around us took our picture.
