Merrit in the 400m...DAYYYMMMNN!
I am so proud that my Alma Mater is not only being represented, but being represented by a class act like LaShawn Merrit!!! Pull for him!!! Wear some purple and gold for good luck the next few weeks so you can say "Hey, I know a guy that went to the same school as LaShawn Merrit!!!
Get into the Olympic spirit! I know the China thing has got everybody bogged down, but you need to remember! These young folks of ours have worked so hard to represent all of us!
Here's John Williams, famous composer of Star Wars and Indiana Jones with his Olympic Theme at the 1984 Olympics (also available on Edge' Movie Music!)!
Hard to imagine I was 9 years-old when this was taking place...wow.
