Well, the summer 2008 Olympics have begun. I'm spending a little break from some reading watching an event or two on TV. Currently in my time zone, NBC is showing the men's cycling road race, which is 150 miles. Apparently, the cyclists are starting in Beijing and rode past Tiananmen Square and then the Olympic stadium venues.
It's a bit odd to think that I was in Beijing a year ago and saw that stuff all in person.
Also, I can't imagine doing those events in that air pollution. Gross.
