Some of my best memories are sitting on my dad’s lap, cheering on Olga and Nadia, Carl Lewis, and others for their brilliance and perfection.
As the first comment at the video notes, Michelle was 20 when Carl Lewis first participated in the Olympics, so that dad’s lap business is easily detected bullshit.
Like so many young people, I was inspired. I found myself dreaming that maybe, just maybe, if I worked hard enough, I, too, could achieve something great.
But I never dreamed that the Olympic flame might one day light up lives in my neighborhood.
yada, yada, yada………go read the full monty at Ann’s blog

Good times, good times. I think it was the first time I saw MO dressed up and she reminded me of a giant 8yr old going to a party. The gold dress was hideous. Oh oh..Oprah sitting next to her wearing what looked like a dress made out of Glad trash bags. The arrogance, the we can’t lose attitude and it all came crashing down on their heads…the first EPIC FAIL.
Her speech was juvenile and assumed that the world was hers to enjoy.
Now that we know what really happens in Chicago, imagine having the world come to their streets of crime and death. It would have been a nightmare.
I remember being over at Hillbuzz cheering on Rio 😀 We won that battle !
