    2008 Olympics in Beijing

    Whose getting ready for the 2008 Summer Olympics?

    I sure am. Go U.S.A. We are going to win the most medals. It should be a great summer olympics.

    Speaking of Olympics, who has been to previous Olympics or are planning to go in future Olympics?

    me too!!!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Re: 2008 Olympics in Beijing

    I've never to the Olympics, but my parents went to a lot of events during the 1984 Los Angeles games. My dad was a high school track/basketball coach at the time, and he was asked to be a judge for one of the track events, so they got free passes into everything!

    Re: 2008 Olympics in Beijing

    No, I'm not excited about them at all

    As for the U.S. winning the most medals, I dunno. We'll have a great team, but China is going to be pretty tough this year. It'll be fun to watch.

    I've been to 4 Games; LA '84, Calgary '88, Atlanta '96 and Salt Lake 2002. I have plans to go to Vancouver, but am doing a wait and see for it because of finances and such. CoSport is the ticket agent for Beijing for all US sales, but I'm not sure if they are doing Vancouver or not.

    Re: 2008 Olympics in Beijing

    I covered the rowing and canoeing events at Lake Casitas - near Ojai, CA for the 84 games. I was sports director for a Ventura radio station.

    I also spent some time in the media center in LA, and got to attend the Opening Ceremonies - a never-to-be-forgotten evening at the Coliseum.

    For what it it is worth, I'm tired of the over-commercialization and the politics involved with the Games. And I have problems with them being staged in Beijing. And I enjoy watching the events of the Winter Games more.

    But I'm sure I'll be watching at least a good deal of the time. The Olympic Trials have been exciting.

    Never been, but a friend of mine went to the '96 games in Atlanta (she won a trip from a radio station).

    If you are in Vancouver this summer, some of the venues have tours available now:

    One guy I went to high school with is competing in Beijing with the Canadian wrestling team.

    Re: 2008 Olympics in Beijing

    Nothing could be better than the 84 LA Olympics. So no, I'm not going, although I might watch a couple of events on TV. I'm not that thrilled with the Games being in Beijing, given China's human rights record and Tibet policy, but perhaps this could help open China up in that respect somewhat.
