Olympic Sprint

The Olympics are almost here, y'all.

The 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

The Winter Olympics are pretty cool...

but let's be honest,

the Summer Olympics are the Mary

and the Winter Olympics are the Rhoda.

(Romy & Michelle's High School Reunion reference, anyone?)

The city of London looks so great. 

In fact, I'm almost equally excited about enjoying London after the Olympics

when all the people leave and all the upgraded public spaces are "mine" to enjoy.

With the opening of the Olympic traffic lanes

and the pulsing addition of visitors to the city,

it's obvious that it's happening soon.

We have our tickets ready,

we've planned out our routes,

and all we need now are some temporary tattoos of American flags

and some face paint and we'll be ready to do this.

We scored tickets to four events:

water polo, football (read: soccer), 

women's field hockey,

and, as of today, the opening ceremonies!


If you are in London and need some tickets-

I have several to get rid of for July 31's game

where Great Britain's Women play Brazil in football! £60 each. 

Email me, if you're interested or share it with friends that may be in town!

I'll be instagram'ing (aspiringkennedy),




the whole time

if you want to catch an inside peek of the 2012 games.

Are you an Olympic fanatic

or are they nothing more than a disruption

for your regular shows?

What events are your must-sees?
