” I’m feeling very Olympic today, how ’bout you? ”
If any of you have ever seen the movie Cool Runnings , you would be familiar with this line and the image of up-beat and sunny Sanka from Jamaica, standing huddled in a crowd of cold and somber Canadians.
Yesterday? Everyone was up-beat and sunny Sanka from Jamaica. I don’t mean this literally because that would just be strange, not to mention impossible.
So after two weeks of hosting the Olympic games, here are some images which may not inspire a generation, but certainly inspired me this weekend.
Two things are certain :
1. If we get this chance again, we should not be given the opportunity to arrange our own opening and closing ceremonies.
2. This was an incredible time to be alive and living in this city.
So I’m still feeling very Olympic , how ’bout you?
